Glitch in the Matrix: Teofimo Lopez Outboxes Vasyl Lomachenko to Become the Undisputed Lightweight King

The lightweight division just saw an epic title fight showdown, as Teofimo Lopez has taken it all tonight. Adding the WBA, WBC, and WBO titles on his shoulder, he is the new unified word lightweight champion now. Meanwhile, Vasyl Lomachenko had to depart the arena empty-handed with another loss on his pro-boxing resume. However, he didn’t fail to put on a show tonight. Going to the distance with one of the best lightweight world champions, Lomachenko had his moments in the fight. However, it wasn’t enough to bag the victory.

That said, the 32-year-old still has a long way to go in the sport. While this was just a mere setback in his career, he would want to return stronger than ever in his next fight. Yet, the wound of the loss might sting for some time since it was the biggest fight of his career to date.

Despite going to the distance and giving it all inside it ring, Loma couldn’t get the last laugh. He will clearly set this as a reminder and look forward to getting back to the winning ways in his next fight.

It was a pure battle between Vasyl Lomachenko and Teofimo Lopez

‘Takeover’ Teofimo Lopez clearly dictated the initial rounds of the fight and thoroughly put work on Loma’s body. The body shots were powerful as they swapped the Ukranian’s energy in the early stage.

However, Loma bounced back to the fight in the middle and gave a hard time to Lopez. In the latter rounds, Vasyl Lomachenko outpointed his rival multiple times and left him bloodied by the end. However, Lopez didn’t let that affect his game plan as he successfully responded with action until the final bell.

Although it appeared to be an extremely close-call, Lopez has bagged the win by a huge margin. The judges scored the contest 116-112, 119-109, and 117-111 in the favor of Teofimo ‘Takeover’ Lopez. This was his 16th win of professional career as he is the WBA, WBO, and IBF world champion now.
