    Lomachenko is a special special talent.

    So is Rigo. Both are double Olympic gold medalist as well as world champs in the pros. Wow.

    At this point, though, I feel obligated to point out that Rigo is a 36 year old bantamweight jumping two weigh divisions!

    It is insane to expect Rigo to win but it shows that he is willing to take the risk to get the reward.

    Closest thing I have seen to this was Mosley v Oscar, when Shane jumped up 2 weight divisions.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Shane was closer to his prime tho. Rigo could have settled for one of the top guys at feather but I doubt the money would have been there. Excellent fight for the end of the year plus we should have hopefully a couple of big Japanese new year's eve cards to end the year.

    Lomo should win as he has every advantage.

    Good fight.

    I've said this before, but I can't wait till they are face to face. I'm really not sure that there is a massive size/weight difference, and I don't think it's going to be as important to the result as everyone thinks. Like I said, I haven't seen them face to face , so I might be wrong.

    So this is the first picture I've seen of them together. The only thing that I noticed is that how come Rigo is fighting Sam Smith??😂😂 have to say Loma looks bigger, but not ridiculously so.

    Ok, just seen the pics at the weigh in. Yep, Loma is a lot bigger! Big enough to make a difference? Yeah probably, but you've gotta give Rigo credit for backing himself.

    Surely everyone knows that the only reason Rigo is taking this fight is because nobody else will give him a payday. I exspect Loma to win comfy which is annoying because Rigo is one of my all time fav fighters and I hope he wins but when 2 fighters have similar skills usually the bigger man will win.

    If Loma wins hopefully he fiughts Berchelt and then moves up, although not much for him at lightweight at the minute. The dream fight is Garcia but cant see that happening with his hatred of Arum.

    Consensus appears to be that Loma should win because Rigo is too old and too small. Two weight jumps in 1 is a big ask especially vs a guy like Lomachenko. He's a volume a fighter and that's what gives him the edge. If they were the same size I'd lean towards Rigo.
    Slightly better skills from the Cuban and bigger punch but at 130lbs I don't think he can keep up with Loma. Hope I'm wrong. Rooting for Rigo as he's the one who budged at the negotiating table to make the fight happen
