It's sad we're conditioned to expect everything to be PPV reallyI think that Loma's footwork has held up well enough at lightweight, but you're right that the strength and power of Lopez is a big weapon. If he can land shots, get some momentum early on, then Loma might start looking his age.
Lomachenko needs to go in favourite, but a Lopez win would be far from a massive upset.
I'm still stunned that it isn't PPV. My Grandpa is an old fan, and when I think about the amount of money we've spent paying for so many dud fights on his Foxtel, it staggers me that he'll only need to switch on the TV on Sunday to watch this sort of contest.
Tszyu v Brubaker = $50. Between them about 40 followers on IG
Loma v Lopez = foxtel/kayo sub. World class, popular and possibly fight of the year.
I hope this brings about a shift in reevaluating what promoters think is PPV worthy but I doubt it does. We'll be gouged forever more
