Hughie Fury fights should come with a public health warning.
His fights are like watching paint dry.

The Tony Pulis of boxing, just a utter boring boxer.

The commentators on ESPN have been having a chat about Loma the last 3-4 rounds. ;D
"Since its purchase by the sheikh of Abu Dhabi, Manchester City has managed to cheat its way into the top echelon of European football and create a global, immensely profitable football empire, ignoring rules along the way. The club's newfound glory is rooted in lies."

I think he is possibly losing this on the cards as well; not sure though given how sleepy I feel...

Can't say I'm paying too close attention but yeah, I think he's probably losing.

At least we get Loma. If Campbell wins, it would rank just below Turpin vs SRR as biggest upset by a British fighter.

If Lomachenko keeps moving up, he'll eventually lose to someone around Luke Campbell's level. But it won't happen at 135.

It does seem that way, doesn't it? Like it is a job rather than having any real passion. It isn't a good weight division for that kind of mentality!

Exactly that. No urgency at all. Almost felt like he took a moral victory of going 12 rounds

Classic sparring partner.

He'll always make a living as one of those guys who's a bit awkward and gets you rounds.  He'll be losing UDs to prospects for a couple of years yet.

Yeah I think the points might come as a bit of a shock. Campbell's doing alright but I don't think he's winning any rounds. Will look a lot more one sided on the cards I think.

My scorecard would be pretty one sided in favour of Loma but that perhaps does Campbell a bit of a disservice because many of those rounds were only edged by Loma rather than being dominant.

Nah. Loma was ahead after 10 and won 10-8 and 10-9 at the end. Campbell's reputation has gone up though IMO. Gave Loma plenty to think about for 10 rounds.

Really good fight that. 116-111 Loma for me, he showed his class when it came to it.

Was a good fight. Loma by 5 or 6 for me. Campbell did well to survive a few times there.

I had it 119-108 to Loma in the end. Only gave the first round to Campbell although a lot of rounds were close.

Cards are harsh on Campbell but at the same time it's hard to give him more than a couple of rounds.

Campbell was good for 1 minute in every round.

Impressed with Campbell.  Loma deserved the win but thought it would have been far far more one sided.  Props to luke campbell.. tight score (imo) v the number 1 pound for pound. 👐👐

Taylor/Prograis would light him up I reckon. He might be able to get through Broner though.

Watched the fight with no commentary earlier as we were coming back from Burnley so listened on the radio. I thought Campbell was competitive in the 1st 4 rounds and round 7 was his best round. Lomachenko was different class in rounds 5. 11 and 12 and Campbell did well to go the distance.

Just read that Gervonta Davis is vacating the WBA title at 130 & moving up to 135. Same weight as Lomachenko.

Bob Arum was suggesting on Saturday night that Davis/Loma might be next.
I agree Campbell enhanced his reputation.  Had it slightly closer than the judges but Loma edged quite a lot of rounds I guess so no arguments.
Jeff Powell in today's Mail is saying Loma is the best technical fighter he's seen in 60years of watching the game.
