Not only Loma does this, Usyk does it also. I guess it's a Ukranian-born thing. Basically he will either throw a short barrage or a hook or feint a hook to get his opponent to shell and then step laterlally to their lead foot which gets him side-on to guard where he can land something good before his opponent can adjust to the positional change.
It's not a super-complicated trick but it's a ******* good one, and I suppose it takes thousands of hours training it to master. Everybody can sing but not everybody is beyonce. Thing is, unless his opponent has equally good footwork literally relative to adjusting/countering it..well, they're **** out of luck, which is why Rigo was made to look ridiculous by Loma. Dealing with it just wasn't in his wheelhouse.
It's not going to be in Ortiz's either.
