  • I was expecting Lopez to be much bigger.

    They are basically the same height. I was expecting some Lomachenko-Linares type of size difference. Basically Lopez is just slightly thicker, and on fight night give or take 5 pounds is the maximum difference between their weights. Lopez is in huge trouble.

    Loma is actually 2 inches taller than teo & no, he's not wearing high heels

      It depends on how he made the weight, and how he re-hydrates. He has far larger bones, and could be as much as 7-8 lbs more than Lomachenko in the fight. He's broader and altogether a more impressive mass.

      I never like to see boxers coming in so exactly on weight. It means-=(to me) that they may have "cut" weight on the day before etc, instead of gradually coming down in easy proper stages. For an extreme example, Corrales was still 10 lbs overweight on the morning of the Mayweather fight. Which is why he could only get to the scales leaning on a friend's arm, and even then, had to make 2 more trips to the sweatbox before hitting the weight.

      Lomachenko has an unusual build. His legs are disproportionate to the height, width depth of his chest. He really "taper"s, down to the ground. I read that he can stay underwater for 4 1/2 minutes, a HUGE lung capacity. I think that Henry Armstrong was like that, and Nicolino Locche also had the same build but he was a bit hunched over, because of his style .

      These are the kind of guys who could go 20 rds if needed.

            People downplay loma’s size as a way of overrating him. Pretending that lopez is so much bigger will make a potential win by loma look better and give a built in excuse for a potential loma loss.

                careful...that guy you're talking to is a floyd fanboy. for them what applies to floyd doesn't apply to other fighters

                  This wouldn't even be an issue if Teo didn't lie about his height.
