    • I grant Kambosos was outclassed and outskilled from the getgo. He got beat to heck by feather fist Haney twice, who should have lost to Loma.

      But it's pretty clear Loma would be undisputed champ if he'd taken the fight instead of Haney in '22, and I doubt Haney would have gotten the win as B-side. Loma didn't look like a 36 year old tonight, and thank goodness he didn't seem interested in leaving it to the judges. He may have beaten Kambosos into retirement.

      NGL, if Loma can run the Vaquero/Shakur/Tank gauntlet, as a 36-37 year old on the final run of his career, I personally think there's no question that he's an ATG. That's an absolutely brutal road to undisputed.

      • Pedro Regina didn’t win chit
        My guess is the WBC doesn’t enjoy having Maloney as champion

          I recall Andy Ruiz having the Mexican anthem before his fight with Joshua but yes this was totally unnecessary.

              I don't know if it's just being tasked with commenting without ever being questioned or challenged on your statements, or having to always come up with things to say. Either way, it's a lot of talking and more than I would care to do.

              He did seem more low key when he started commentating. But he prob wasn't fully comfortable yet. Plus Ward balanced it by challenging his view sometimes.

                Talk about taking you out of the excitement and moment. One of the worst I've ever seen. Then Loma wins and they immediately cut to basketball newscast, rofl. Without a doubt, the worst boxing telecast I've seen in my life.
                I liked the camera footage between the ropes, like a kid spying something through a hole in the fence. Or maybe the overhead camera that just shows two round heads punching. Or the camera behind Kambosas back when he's stuck in the corner and I can't even see if or where Loma was landing.

                It isn't rocket science, but they keep doing it wrong.

                  But Loma did it again so he'd see it. Went right for that body, crisp.
