I bought some powdered water, but I don't know what to add to it.

Yeah, it's kind of sad how someone like that who spent years fighting and finally gets some spotlight only to seemingly "get old" overnight and get KO'd brutally like that. I guess in the lower weights the aging process is even worse as you rely on your speed and the younger guys at that weight are incredibly fast so once you start declining you're likely to never get back on top.

That's the reason many are giving Lomenchenko a huge advantage over Rigo as he has the size advantage and is much younger. Should be a great fight regardless, but Rigo has a lot going against him.

Yeah, spent all that time on top of pound for pound lists, then lost that close decision. I don't know if he got old, lost confidence, or was simply outgunned. Whatever the case, he didn't look the same this go around. Tough climb back to the top.
