SKY sports tonight at 3am

Forget Mayweather, Lomachenko is the best boxer of his generation. Has everything in his locker. If Crolla was to win then would go down as the biggest upset ever by a British fighter.

Can't wait

Fair play to Crolla for taking that fight. Bit of a mismatch in my opinion, hope he makes it out ok & gets a decent payday.

 


Vive le Roy!

Stay busy fight for Lomachenko and a beating for Crolla. He's one of boxing's nice guys and I hope he'll be alright and retires and can stay retired after this one.

For a guy fighting in his weight class, he must have enough money to be comfortable now.

Agree, love watching Lomachenko, so good.
Like Crolla, which is weird as I donít like mancs, especially red ones.

He tried out there, just outclassed......thought the Sky commentators were way too critical of the referee.

A devastating punch perfect display by Lomachenko.

Incredible punch variation and hand speed however as a boxing purist, its the footwork which impress me the most, the way he is constantly moving in and out of range.

Not sure I have ever seen a fighter blessed with his skill set, and I mean ever, Any weight - any era.

Great heart from Crolla, although to be fair I never expected anything else from him. Hope he will be OK.

Would love to see Lomachenko v Garcia.

Agree. Thought it should have been stopped at end of the 3rd however I didn't think it was necessarily a given. Crolla, whilst admittedly not throwing back, didn't appear that hurt at that point and appeared to have his senses.

Regarding the knockdown, whilst the ref did yes start counting, he did to his credit stop at three when he realised Crolla was gone.

Yeah, I sometimes get the impression with these commentators that they are sucking up to Adam Smith.....whatever he says they just agree with him.

They are pretty interchangeable most of the time and unmemorable.....I'd prefer Naz up there.....that man has 'fu.k off' money and says pretty much what he thinks.

Yep, while I'm not really one for that 'pound for pound' stuff I think that Lomachenko is clearly very special.

The Garcia fight is surely more realistic now.....Garcia must have come down to earth after being so comprehensively beaten by Spence.....the real big money fight is Lomachenko.....and in that fight it's Garcia with the big size advantage.

Agree with all of this Tom. Loma is a very very special boxer. He has made bloody good fighters just quit because they are so disheartened. Barry Jones said on box nation a while ago that the only thing he can see beating him is weight. However In his post fight interview with Crystina Poncher (definitely would btw) he seemed happy to stay where he is and unyfi.
