  1. NO. You can't be the next Mohammad Ali, unless you are a heavy weight. This is like when they ask if Serena Williams is the best overall tennis player. No she is not. If you are a middle weight fighter, you will never be the next Ali.

  2. Do me a favor, go and search for the fight where Lomachenko lost to Salido and compare it to when Mikey Garcia fought Salido. Mikey knocked Solido down over 4 times. It was such a mismatch that the commentators said Salido didn't deserve to be in the ring with Mikey. Lomachenko by contrast lost against Salido. Racism still exists.

  3. "Floyd is content with outscoring his opponent and hitting him with more punches than the opponent hits him with." And to Arum that's a bad thing? Getting into that Larry Merchant stage of being senile it seems.

  4. Please dont listen to this geriatric piece of shit … trust me bob arum is only seeking to appeal to casuals who dont know the game of boxing do your own research on this lomochnecko is not better than Ali

  5. all I have to say is watch Pacquiao Versus Diaz – Loma is Pacquiao but without the extreme speed; watch that fight and note that footwork of Pacman; defense; and triple uppercuts to the body with the right arm followed by overhand lefts – When I watch Loma; it looks very much like a less aggressive old school Pacman (who is highly under-rated with his defensive abilities; always has been for some reason). I love Loma; He is indeed special… but… I don't think he's Pacquiao special. Thus I don't think he's ali special. Arum has been saying that Pac was the best since ali for like 15 years, and now he changes his mind after throwing Pacquiao under the bus? – I very much dislike bob arum. If I was loma- I would RUN.
