Teofimo Lopez dethroned Vasyl Lomachenko with a magnificent boxing display to hand him his second career loss on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
The young American IBF champion added Loma’s WBA, WBC ‘franchise’ and WBO titles to his collection in a stunning upset which will send shockwaves through the boxing world.
The fight began with a tentative opener as both men took their time and sized each other up.
Lopez threw a few jabs to the body and was more aggressive at the start.
In round two, the young lion caught the veteran champion with a right hand which drew a response of a straight left.
Loma also found a home for another counter late in the round, but the session was again largely uneventful.
Lopez invested in the body well in round three and undoubtedly appeared significantly more active early on.
This pattern continued into the fourth, fifth and sixth as Lomachenko fell further and further behind on the scorecards solely due to inactivity.
As they entered the second half, there was an argument to be made that Lopez had won every single round so far.
Loma tried to come forwards more in the seventh, but was met by his opponent’s straight right hand to head and body - the deterrent that continually kept him at bay.
The Ukrainian finally appeared to have woken up in round eight as he put together an impressive combination to land successive punches on Lopez for the first time in the fight.
Loma carried this aggression into the ninth, but the American answered back with sharp counter rights as he had done to control the action before.
The pair traded up close in round ten as Lomachenko took risks to get closer to Lopez.
His intelligent movement and quick lead shots saw him starting to come on strong after the slow start.
Loma flew out of the blocks in the eleventh and hammered his foe with combinations once more.
Lopez attempted to hit back, but seemed to be tiring as he retreated against the ropes.
In the final round, the youngster dispelled this myth of fatigue as he responded by coming out firing once more, just as he had earlier in the bout.
Lomachenko appeared every bit the older man as the 23-year-old set about him for three minutes to secure victory.
The scorecards were read out as 116-112, 119-109, 117-111 in favour of Lopez. Takeover complete.
“I feel good. I’m a fighter, I’ve gotta dig in deep,” he said after the win.
“I didn’t know if they had him up on the scorecards. That’s what a true champion does, finds a way to win.
“Honestly you’ve just gotta keep pressuring him, every time he wanted to throw I had something ready for him.”
Loma left the ring immediately after the scores were read and gave a short interview in the dressing room.
He said: “I think in the first half he had more rounds than I did, but in the second half I took over and I was much better.
“I want to go home and review the fight, I can’t comment right now much about it. Definitely I’m not agreeing with the scorecards.”
