Boxer Teofimo Lopez has gone viral for what he did after KO'ing Vitor Freitas

The iconic Madison Square Garden was treated to a feast of boxing on Saturday night.

One of the sport’s finest venues saw history made, as Ukranian fighter Vasyl Lomachenko defeated Jorge Linares to become the WBA ‘Super’ world lightweight champion.

It was only Hi-Tech’s 12th professional fight, but he has now won world titles in three separate weight divisions, the first man to do so in such a short space of time.

And he even bounced back from his first knockdown, with Linares catching him with a beautiful right hand in the sixth, before Lomachenko ended the bout in the tenth with a devastating body shot.

There was also some decent entertainment on the undercard, with highly-rated Northern Irish fighter Michael Conlan winning his seventh professional fight against vs Ibon Larrinaga.

However, one of the most talked about moments of the night came in the bout between Teofimo Lopez and Vitor Freitas.

Lopez is being touted as the next big thing in the lightweight division, recording his ninth consecutive victory at professional level with a brutal first-round knockout

But, it was what the American-born fighter did after that got everyone talking.

As Freitas hit the turf and was counted out by the referee, Lopez proceeded to celebrate in a manner that is rarely seen in boxing.

Showing a complete lack of respect, the 20-year-old performed Fortnite’s famous ‘Take the L’ dance before doing a backflip.

Sounds too bizarre to be true? Well, the footage is below for all to see.


Shades of Prince Naseem Hamed.

The footage quickly went viral on Twitter, with most boxing fans pretty stunned at Lopez’s actions.

Although, it appears to have won him over a few fans. People love a bit of Box Office…


They don’t seem to mind at all.

The Fortnite craze really is taking over sport, so don’t be surprised to see Tyson Fury doing the floss if he’s victorious on June 9…
