While Ishe has grown into the weight, Gomez was a small welterweight as it was, he has no place at 154 IMO.
Ishe is not a big fighter at 154 lbs, nor a big punching 154 lbs guy, nor even to be brutally honest a true world-class fighter. He is what Gomez is, a fringe world level guy that got a shot against one of the weakest champions out there due to his connections with Floyd and managed to beat said champion unimpressively. Gomez brings a lot of the same problems Molina does to a fight with Ishe, except for Gomez has less size but better technique than Molina. Principally, Gomez has a very good jab, a weapon which Ishe does not possess. At the least the fight would be very competitive. Conservatively, Gomez would win the first half of the fight where he traditionally starts fast while Ishe starts slow, and Ishe would come on down the stretch with it probably coming down to a close decision. Personally, I think Gomez would win. However, as stated, it's not going to happen because if Ishe can get past Molina, he'll be looking to cash in, he won't be taking a fight like Gomez unless he has to.
