Former world champion ‘El Bufalo’ Rosendo Alvarez, who held the minimumweight and jr flyweight world championships, agrees that size will matter – but went into depth over why the style and ability of Lomachenko will prove crucial.

“I think it’s going to be a very complicated fight, two similar styles, defensive and with good speed, but I’m going with Lomachenko… I think he will come out with better results, because he’s more continuous with his attack. Rigondeaux starts off very slow, he doesn’t throw a lot of punches, and Lomachenko is not going to give him a chance to get going,” Alvarez said.

“He will be affected by the weight gain, he will not have the same power, the same punch similar to what happened with Chocolatito. In that weight division, Rigondeaux will not have the same punch or speed in his legs to be able to escape the attacks of Lomachenko, who is adapted and accustomed to fighting in that weight division” Alvarez concluded.
