What a great matchup this is going to be.

As great of an amateur as Lomachenko was (396-1 with two Olympic gold medals), Rigondeaux was one of the greatest amateur boxers that has ever lived.

It is just too bad Rigondeaux didn't defect from Cuba sooner. He could have had a historic reign as a bantamweight in the mid-00s. Still, this should be an epic fight with two technically brilliant boxers.

I see Loma just about taking this on points. Rigon has had to step up a weight class and even though he's in great physical condition he's still a 37 year old fighting a 29 year old.

Should be the best fight of the year.

Should be good. Vasyl should be favored. Guillermo's age is not as much of a factor as people think other than his slightly waning power.

I take Vasyl purely because he's shown improvement every single fight and he's at the top of his game and prime.

Ridiculous who much of a mismatch that fight was in hindsight. Rigo made loma look like a welterweight.

It was a staged fight. Both clearly knew Loma was to win. Rig looked like he didn't give a shit about that fight.

This, along with the Alvarez/GGG fight, were not great fights. You rarely got to see the strength of any of the four fighters, ironically, all four are great fighters.

GGG v Canelo was a decent fight and wasn't fixed like the Loma fight, but obviously the judges screwed it up because GG clearly deserved the win.

GGG won 8 rounds.
