Sore loser Teofimo Lopez declared he won his fight with new Aussie world champion George Kambosos Jr, claiming he took 10 out of the 12 rounds.
Lopez was a hot favourite to continue his unbeaten run but fell to the Sydneysider via split decision, 115-111, 115-113, 113-114.
Lopez was knocked down in the first round, and while he knocked down Kambosos in the tenth, was the less active fighter and less dominant, with even the US TV commentators tipping the Aussie as the victor before the scores were revealed.

But Lopez took his loss terribly as, bleeding from the face and with a massive welt forming over the top of his left eye, he took to the microphone post-fight.
He sounded so delusional that even the New York, pro-Lopez crowd turned against him.
“He’s a hell of a fighter, but I won tonight, everybody knows that,” Lopez said to a chorus of boos.
“The referee raised my hand. I won tonight, I don’t care what anybody says yo, I won tonight. At the end of the day, I’ve been here, I done that, I want to thank God, I want to thank everybody that came out tonight, look, I ain’t no sore loser, I take my wins like I take my losses.
“At the end of the day man I’m a true champion, I did what I had to do, and I went out there and did my best. I don’t care what anybody says man, I am as real as they come, and this is the takeover man, we don’t stop, we keep coming.
“Yo, at the end of the day man, I love you all, I won this fight.”
He added: “At the end of the night, I scored it 11-2. 10-2.”
Kambosos responded: “Take it like a champ. Let’s do it again in Australia in front of 80,000 people!”
Lopez was roundly mocked on social media for his claim.
