He's not necessarily smothering himself as he just has no jab. He has a lot of faults and this is coming from one of the big Lomachenko fans on here (been posting about him forever and a day) but I admit he's a skilled slugger who has speed and immense pressure. His footwork is different because the game is different. In the ams people are figgity and always running around and they're footwork is varied. Lomachenko still unleashes his footwork in specific moments though when he's close to give angles he doesn't do it all the the time. His footwork has slowed down because it is more educated now. And he sits down more and is there to hurt you not just score points. He wanted to hurt you before but now its a definite difference. His weakness though is that he has no jab and if you take him out of his rhythm he gets flustered. Also to defeat him you just walk towards his left. His left has a lot of power but it doesn't change the fact that he's right handed and has had more than a couple of surgeries on his left hand. So he can be one handed at times. He is still exciting and has so much more to grow but he will definitely reach a peak he can't surpass I believe. So yes I'm A MASSIVE Lomachenko fan but definitely no nut hugger.
