Fan-favorite slugger Eryk Anders and former title challenger Jessica Eye couldn’t contain their excitement about the aforementioned bout. Moreover, the fact that Teofimo walked away with 4 belts further enhanced the moment for combat sports fans.

Chiefly, top strawweight contender Tatiana Suarez hilariously commented on the fact that the second half of the fight made up for the lackluster first half. Lomachenko kicked into gear once he realized he was trailing on the cards.

Marlon ‘Chito’ Vera, Edmen Shahbazyan, and Matt Brown were quick to congratulate Teofimo on his statement win. What’s more, ‘El Brooklyn’ now finds himself in a pole position to begin solidifying his own status as the top dog.

135-pound title challenger Aljamain Sterling gave ‘Hi-Tech’ Lomachenko a shout-out after falling short on the cards.

Not to mention, there was a significantly large faction across the board that believes the fight would be a draw. Chiefly, the action became more competitive as time went on. Moreover, former UFC light heavyweight champion Rampage Jackson called for the two boxers to run it back.

Additionally, the scorecards were put under scrutiny by the fans and media alike. A particular scorecard that read 119-109 was especially targeted as many believed it was somewhat extreme, all things considered.
