Re: Tank Davis vacates, moves up, Loma’s mandatory
I probably give Tank and better chance now than before. He still seems a bit linear and inexperienced for Loma. The thing for me now is that Loma seems to be losing focus, and preoccupied with other things rather than boxing. If you followed the guy on social media and off the boxing websites. He used to post some unique training videos and other things that showed him honing his physical and mental acuity. when there was no fight . Now there's vids of him doing spokesman modeling, drifting tuners, fishing, product hocking and then boxing content shows up to promote the fight. I get that you have to cash when your star quality goes up or risk losing out... and a guy needs to unplug every once in a while... Still when you're fighting bigger guys you have to be even more focused. I don't want to make it sound like there's shame it getting dropped on the seat of your pants by linares or getting caught leaping in on campbell (7th round).. you'll never be able to fight perfect all the time but these type of things are negated by focus and it feels like they are happening more often. Tanks faster and probably a more ferocious finisher than Loma has faced before, should something like this happen. Just sayin..
They want your @$$ beat because upsets make news. News brings about excitement, excitement brings about ratings. The objective is to bring you up to the tower and tear your @$$ down. And if you don't believe that, you're crazy.
