BOXING

Ex-featherweight champion (up to 57.2 kg), American Shakur Stevenson supported on social networks the newly-minted absolute world champion in lightweight (up to 61.2 kg), compatriot Teofimo Lopez (16-0-0, 12 KO), who outboxed today after twelve rounds of the division leader, Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko (14-2-0, 10 KO).

“Teofimo called my name like Edgar Berlanga, the middleweight champion and announced a new generation of boxers. A new era has arrived! Congratulations, keep up the good work, Teofimo Lopez,” Stevenson wrote on his Twitter.
