    DEVIN MAY CARE

    Teofimo Lopez called out American lightweight rival Devin Haney just moments after his stunning demolition of Vasiliy Lomachenko.

    And it didn’t take long for Haney to give an answer, as he tweeted: “Lopez vs Haney 2021. Let’s do It! allthebelts.”

    Speaking in the ring after his dismantling of a fighter regarded as the pound-for-pound best in Lomachenko, Lopez said: “I had to dig deep, man. I’m thankful. I’m grateful.

    “And each and every day, I take that in. I thank God first because I couldn’t do it without him. I’m a fighter. I gotta dig in deep.

    “I knew he was coming. I didn’t know if they had him up on the scorecards or not, and I love to fight.

    “I can bang, too. I don’t care, man. I’ll take one to give one. That’s what a true champion does. I find a way to win.”

    'THOUGHT I WAS WINNING'

    Vasyl Lamochenko bizarrely claimed he thought he had WON the fight against Teofimo Lopez, despite getting dominated.

    The Ukrainian told Top Rank: “I think in the first half of the fight, he got more rounds than I did, but in the second half of the fight, I took it ver and I was much better.

    “I want to go home and review the fight. I can’t commentate too much on it.

    “At the moment, I think I fought and was winning the fight, but the results are the results. I’m not going to argue right now. I need to see.”

    TEOFIMO LOPEZ BEATS VASYL LOMACHENKO

    Well, the night has come to an end and it's getting dangerously light outside – which means one thing – my bed is calling.

    But before that, just a final goodbye to everyone who followed along with SunSport's coverage.

    Tonight was Teofimo's night! He ousted a man who nobody thought could be ousted, and he leaves Las Vegas with four belts, as the sport's youngest ever undisputed world champion.

    A fantastic achievement. Loma will think over his next steps, but he's been an incredible champions to feast our eyes on over the past six years.

    This is his 3rd ever loss in 413 fights, amateur and pro. Let that sink in.

    Lopez was just better, stronger, hungrier and younger. He proved himself to be a true champion.

    Until next time… have a good one, folks.

    LOMA SPEAKS

    “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,” Loma says.

    “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.”

    ARUM FUMES

    Bob Arum not happy with the 119-109 scorecard in favour of Lopez!

    “Lopez won, 7-5 is way I scored it. I can see 8-4, that’s a possibility,” he said.

    “But you can’t score it 11 rounds to 1 and say you watched the fight. Ninth, 10th and 11th weren’t close.

    “I would advise any fighter that I have to ask for the commission not to appoint Julie Lederman.”

    LOPEZ BEATS LOMACHENKO

    Loma storms out of the ring, he wants nothing to do with Lopez's celebrations and I don't even think they shook hands.

    Lopez fought a great fight and Loma took too long to get going in there.

    Nobody saw that coming. At all.

    LOMACHENKO VS LOPEZ

    12th and final round!

    Big round from both men and they've left it all on the line. Loma pushed and pushed, Lopez gave it back and then some.

    I have Lopez winning the fight 115-113, but we'll see what these judges say. It could be closer, it could be wider! Teo is cut big time from a headbutt. But we'll see the final bell.

    We go to the judges.
