Kambosos Jr Shocks, Dethrones Teofimo López in Epic Bloody Clash


PhilBoxing.com




Unbeaten tough Aussie warrior George Kambosos Jr., has scored one of the biggest wins in Australian boxing history by soundly defeating and dethroning hard-hitting slugger Teofimo Lopez to claim the unified WBA/WBC/WBO/IBF Lightweight World Title Saturday, Nov. 27, at MSG in New York, live on DAZN.

From the onset of actions, It was an epic war –: a sure candidate to fight of the year – in which both fighters rocked each other hard, decking each other to the canvas, exchanging power blows, both ending the action-packed battle with their faces dripping with blood.

Scores were split: 115-111 and 115-112 for Kambosos, while one card was inexplicable 114-113 for Lopez.

Most importantly, in the eyes of most fans, George Kambosos Jr. (20-0,10 KO’s), the Australian warrior of Greek ancestry did enough to deserve the spectacular, stunning win.

Unfortunately, sore-loser Teofimo López (16-1, 12 KO’s), who was a 13 to 1 betting favorite, could not accept defeat, saying during the DAZN post-fight interview, that he was the one who won the fight – he did not.

Kudos to George kambosos Jr. for conquering the unified Lightweight world time in one heck of a fight.

Perhaps we could see Kambosos vs Lomachenko next. That could be another heck of fight!
