I doubt they rush that one. Lopez does look sensational.

Straight dynamite power. Love the combos he was throwing.

Lomachenko is fighting next on April 12 on ESPN+ against Richard Commey, who won in an impressive knockout on the ESPN undercards last night to the ESPN+ card. The date and matchup were announced on the show.

Commey will be a live dog. He has pop and can box. Definite underdog, but he could last a while against Loma.

Lopez is a sensational prospect. He's also being matched to look good. He's nowhere near ready for Lomachenko, just like Munguia is nowhere near ready for the elite at 154 or 160.

I thought 120-108 was more accurate than 116-112.
the fight came on so late I had to go to bed and missed all but the 1st round. they said 12am est, but really it was more like 1am start time - brutal.

Re: Boxing Off-Topic

Boxing is getting a bit too hard to follow, from my perspective. I never thought I'd say this, but I wish we could go back to the days where pretty much every major fight was on HBO or Showtime. At least in that case, you need cable +2 premium channels and you're good to go.

At this point, you need DAZN, ESPN+, Showtime, and whatever else. I understand the argument that you can simply replace what you pay for HBO and Showtime with DAZN/ESPN+, but the issue is that there is other content that makes HBO/Showtime worthwhile aside from boxing. With DAZN and ESPN+ (assuming I only care about ESPN+ for boxing, which is the case), I'm paying premium cable fees for once-a-week events, many of which I don't even really care that much about.

I realize some of this is me being an old guy and not acknowledging the changing entertainment landscape, but I feel like I'm not alone in not wanting to have 5+ streaming service subscriptions to deal with.

Re: Boxing Off-Topic

Not everyone loves Max Kellerman but his weekly show (Max On Boxing) starts today on ESPN 2.

Re: Boxing Off-Topic

I hate Kellerman, but I will listen to what he has to say about boxing only. That's the one subject he has any credibility on, IMO.
