Saturday’s highly-anticipated boxing match between Teofimo Lopez and Vasiliy Lomachenko captured the attention of the MMA world.

Lopez won a unanimous decision (116-112, 119-109, 117-111) over Lomachenko to add Lomachenko’s WBA and WBO belts to his own IBF title and become boxing’s undisputed lightweight champion.

While most seemed to agree that Lopez was the rightful winner, a hard charge by Lomachenko in the latter half of the fight added intrigue to the scoring and it’s obvious that some felt that at least one of the judges wasn’t close to getting it right.

Check out some of the reactions to Lopez-Lomachenko below.
