2017 is an incredible year for boxing.
December 9th, 2017, Lomachenko & Rigondeaux square off.
This is one of the most exciting matchups i’ve ever seen. These dudes are both two time gold medalists, skills beyond belief. They are also two southpaws.
My gut tells me Rigondeaux will beat Loma, but Rigondeaux hasn’t been in any big fights for a while. He’s one of the most ducked fighters in boxing. As for Loma, I was a bigger fan until a few of his recent fights. He’s done some really disrespectful sh*t in the ring to his opponents, which really bugs me. He’s basically acting like Broner in there, against someone he knows he can easily defeat. I’m surprised he isn’t humping people yet. That kind of stuff bugs me. Rigondeaux on the other hand, he just always gets the job done, laser precision, speed, defense, patience etc. I guess I hope Rigondeaux humbles Loma… This could be one of those “trilogy” series of fights though, I don’t see how this won’t be an incredible fight. Both guys have incredible boxing IQ, incredible speed, incredible conditioning, incredible defense. It’s going to be insane watching two guys at that level square off.
