In an era that doesn’t include Vasyliy Lomachenko, Luke Campbell is probably a world champion. The gifted British fighter — a former Olympic champ like Loma — put his diverse arsenal of skills on full display Saturday, only to endure a 12-round boxing lesson from a man who is probably a first-ballot hall-of-famer after just 14 pro fights.
Expert analysts Travis Hartman and John J. Raspanti explain what makes Lomachenko a once-in-a-lifetime talent, the likes of which we’re not likely to see again. They unpack his options, from 126 pounds to 135, which could range from Mikey Garcia, to Tank Davis, to The Monster, among others.
Hartman and Raspanti also evaluate Kovalev’s offer to fight Canelo at a catch-weight after spending his entire career at 175, and consider whether Jeff Horn has been reduced to a boxing trivia question after suffering a surprising TKO loss to a relative-unknown named Michael Zerafa.
And then, in our main event, we have a wide-ranging conversation with an all-time great, International Boxing Hall of Famer Donald Curry, about his remarkable career and life.
