    Matzah balls or more likely soy burgers and coffee shop politics.

    The judge's scoring was absurd. Loma won one round in the first half then came on strong to even things up going into the 12th. I had whoever won the last round to be the winner. Lopez clearly won the last round and thus the fight I thought. But it turned out he didn't need it because of the corrupt biased judging.

    Even if Lomachenko had 8 rounds to his name and won he would have gotten robbed, the scores were conspicuously much too wide in favor of Lopez and even non-CFers seemed to pick up on that some going so far as to call a fix. Loma is the bigger name so going by logic the judges should be biased towards him but they were biased towards the mestizo golden boy. Proof of anti-white bias I feel.

    Lopez won and it really wasn’t a difficult decision. I’ve followed Loma for years and I’m a huge fan. I’ve trained with some of his cousins...no anti-white bias, Loma is loved by most everyone in boxing. Lopez earned the victory.

    Bob Arum despite what he says may have fixed the cards. Julie Lederman has not been so incompetent in the past, she knows how to score a fight better than that.

    The untrustworthy Arum can make more money off young Lopez during the next decade than off Loma.


    But people should not make too much of a loss. Nearly every boxer loses sometimes, anyone can have an off night.

    Nearly all of the all-time best fighters, Black, Hispanic, and White, have lost: Joe Louis, Wladimir Klitschko, Harry Greb, Muhammad Ali, Willie Pep, Roberto Duran, Ray Leonard, etc.

    Lomoachenko had surgery on his right shoulder today to repair some damage around his rotator cuff. He also had some repair work on the previous surgery he had. It was also told that he had received an injection during training camp. This would have been nice to know for the betting public.

    Although I think Loma could have won with a different game plan, I still think he is too small for that division. He should not fight over 130.

    Boxing is a business and there is way more money to be made with an undefeated Mexican than a Ukrainian. Especially when that Mexican can deliver knock outs on a regular basis. Having white boxers lose to non-white boxers is a bonus. I'm sure the judges were told to give any close round to Lopez. Same reason Canelo "won" a draw with GGG in their first fight.

    That being said, Loma doesn't belong at 135. He should be fighting at 130 or even 126.
