Lewsi Ritson given a points win in a fight where he got his head boxed off practically the whole fight.

Shameful is the only word to describe it.

Vasquez was robbed. Ritson’s far too one dimensional and unless he improves his footwork - which is unlikely at this stage - he won’t get much further.

I see Lomachenko was beaten last night too. Not watched it yet but was always a dangerous fight for him due to the size and quality of Lopez.

Well worth a watch if you can find it. I had Lopez just edging it, maybe a round or two - was far, far busier in the opening 6-7 rounds and then I don't think Loma did enough when he was boxing himself back into it. That 11-1 card stunk, however. Arguably all three were too wide.

Let me know what you think if you do watch it. It was a real fight of two halves which makes judging a little more difficult, and Crawford and Ward both had it a draw, but for me Lopez edged out.

Just watched and can't disagree with any of that.

Loma far too cautious early on and left himself too much to do at the end. There was some quality stuff from him at times but just not enough.

Credit to Lopez though, thought he looked like the real deal and someone who in time will easily be able to move up a weight - he clearly has enough power which probably explained Loma's cautiousness early on.

Like you say... much closer than the cards but a deserved Lopez win by a couple imo.

Lomo hardly threw a punch in first 6 rounds, which surprised me considering his work rate in previous fights. However he bossed the later part of the fight, wrong tactics on the night. Rematch beckons.
