Lopez executed a perfect gameplan early on and completely shut out Lomachenko in the first half of the fight. Teofimo shut down Loma’s ability to cut angles in this fight. He stepped with Loma so he couldn’t get that patented circle pivot and worked the body beautifully.

Lomachenko sensed an urgency in the second half of the fight and rallied from 7th to 11th round. Heading into the 12th round, Lomachenko was the fresher fighter of the two, but Teofimo didn’t want to slow down and constantly landed huge bombs early. By the end of the round, he had Lomachenko staggered and hurt.

“I have to thank God. I had to dig deep,” Teofimo said. “I’m thankful, I’m grateful and each and every day I take that in. I walk by faith for a reason and it feels good.”
