PODCAST: Loma-Lopez reaction and the performance of Terry O’Connor

Teofimo Lopez
In a bonus podcast we look back on the Loma-Lopez fight and get the Board's reaction to Terry O'Connor taking his eyes off the action

IN this special Loma-Lopez Big Fight Reaction bonus episode, Matt Christie and Alex Steedman wipe their weary eyes and look back on Teofimo Lopez defeating Vasiliy Lomachenko in Las  Vegas.

Points up for discussion:

Was this just a case of Lomachenko growing old?
Why did he take so long to get going? 
How good is Lopez?
How did he solve the Lomachenko conundrum?
What’s next for the triumphant upset winner?
Was the scoring fair?
Where does Lopez now figure in the pound-for-pound rankings?
What’s the appetite for a rematch?

And of course, there’s also the not so small matter of Terry O’Connor‘s judging performance to examine after we get reaction from the British Boxing Board of Control to the alleged use of a mobile phone midway through the bout.
