Lopez-Lomachenko: Tyson, Atlas, Crawford, Pacquiao, Spence React

MGM Grand Conference Center, Las Vegas - There were many reactions to the shocking outcome of the big fight on Saturday night.

In a showdown for the WBC franchise, WBA, WBO, IBF lightweight titles, Teofimo Lopez (16-0, 12 KOs) put on a masterclass performance to win a twelve round unanimous decision over Vasiliy Lomachenko (14-2, 10 KOs).

teofimo-lopez (6)_2020_10_18_082233

The scores were 116-112, 119-109 and 117-111.

At 23-years-old, Lopez becomes the youngest fighter in history to unify all four sanctioning body titles. He becomes the fifth male fighter to accomplish such a feat - with Bernard Hopkins, Jermain Taylor, Terence Crawford and Oleksandr Usyk being the other three.

Lomachenko lost for the first time in six years.

Teddy Atlas - Again what fighters do inside that ring is gallant and Noble. What the judges do outside it is anything but. Tired of saying it, and sick of seeing it. Again I have no problem with fight going to Lopez, he earned it, but Loma did not deserve to hear the scores that wide.

Mike Tyson - Brooklyn was definitely in the house tonight. Lopez is the man to beat. Another Brooklyn champion.

Manny Pacquiao - Congratulations to Teofimo Lopez for an undisputed great performance.

Ryan Garcia -  I got my fight against Luke Campbell but I would love to fight Lopez, there is still a lot of unanswered questions in this lightweight division

Eddie Hearn - Just woke up..Lopez wow!!!

Jamel Herring - We’re not going to do this... say what you want about the SCORES, but the RIGHT man won. It was a good fight.

Roman Gonzalez - Congratulations on your great victory, you showed your quality and boxing intelligence. Long live Central America. Blessings

Errol Spence - Thanks Teo congrats!

Enzo Maccarinelli - Lopez was brilliant,I’d like to see it again though.  Loma being out for a year at his age especially as his main attributes are supreme distance and timing could’ve played a massive part in his inability to start working before 7rds or Lopez could’ve just have his number

Terence Crawford - I been telling Top Rank for years Teofimo Lopez was ready. Good job young fella we been talking about this day for years

Kell Brook - What a fighter! You did exactly what you told me you were gonna do. Enjoy the moment

Michael Conlan - Just to big and strong!! I thought Loma would be good enough to grind out the win but Teofimo was brilliant tonight. Well deserved champ, youngest four belt champ in history

Obviously, the wins nowdays given for *activity*, not landing. 90 % of Lopez's punches went into the blocks of Loma or into the air. Loma, on the other hand, when engaged, owned Lopez's ass. But who cares, if there is…

[QUOTE=deathofaclown;20824478]On his actual Twitter, Spence had a money sign or something after the quote which is missing from the article.[/QUOTE] Nice, that gives context the article was lacking.

[QUOTE=CocoonOfHorror;20823206]He had tweeted previously that he was going to bet on Lopez at +330 (33/10)[/QUOTE] I'd be thanking him too!

[QUOTE=Zaryu;20821880]Makes sense, it definitely stood out to me when I saw the quote. Obviously these are also quotes someone just picked up for the article, so it's not like he was being interviewed or anything like that.[/QUOTE] On his actual…
