And then the shock at the sudden retirement following the Mendy loss in fight that if anyone ever watches you could tell there was something wrong as the contest moved forward.
    Nazarov had been suffering from left eye problems going into the fight and was thumbed in that very same eye in the third round. This tragic accident tore his retina, ended his career, and left him all but blind in his left eye. He finished with a 26-1 mark and, like Arbachakov, fought most of his bouts in Japan.

    IMO He belongs in the Hall with the Yuri.

    Well a prime Kostya is heads and shoulders better than GGG, but as for Loma, I'd say it's a pick' em. If you forced me to the wall and ordered me to answer or else, I'd go with Loma.
