Teofimo Lopez had us boxing pundits considering this:  will we see the Lopez who defeated Vasiliy Lomachenko or the one that barely beat Sandor Martin 안드로이드 웹페이지 이미지 다운로드? The Lopez that showed up was the Lopez who defeated Lomachenko. 

Last Saturday night, Lopez, Jr. easily defeated the undefeated Josh Taylor who had previously defended his title ten times over the past six years.  Lopez talked a good game before the fight, and he delivered on his promise asp.net xlsx 다운로드. The judges had it 115-113, 115-113, and 117-111.  I personally agreed that the latter score was a more accurate description of the fight as Lopez connected on 159 punches versus Taylor’s 82 connects.  Lopez had a slow start as Taylor won the first two rounds but at the end of the fourth round, Lopez nailed Taylor with a hard right.  From there it was all Lopez, and I didn’t give Taylor a round from the fourth to the conclusion of the fight. 

Lopez, a Brooklyn native, had the backing of a raucous crowd in Madison Square Garden as he dominated Taylor who looked rusty, having not fought since February of 2022.  This was not Taylor at his best and finally two rounds saw Lopez connected on 39 punches versus only five for Taylor 홍창의 소아과학 11판 pdf 다운로드. The championship rounds belonged to Lopez.

The fight began in Taylor’s favor as he pressed the action, and I had him winning two of the first three rounds; but from the fourth round, it was Lopez’ fight as Taylor’s eyes swelled.  Now where do both fighters go 스타워즈 라스트 제다이 자막 다운로드?

Taylor experienced his first loss and now where does he go?  Obviously, a rematch with Lopez. Taylor will feel that he could win a rematch and then there is Delvin Haney.  Team Lopez would love a fight with Tank Davis, so who knows if a rematch is in the works 다운로드.

As for Lopez, he was the unified lightweight champion, the WBO and Ring Magazine junior welterweight champion at the age of 25 and maybe he has taken a turn as that dominating fighter many saw after he beat Lomachenko.  As for Taylor, he is 32 years old and still a very good fighter. 

As for the facts, here are the keys:  Lopez connected on more punches in ten of the twelve rounds, connecting on 31 percent of his total punches and 40 percent of his power shots compared to Taylor’s 24 percent connecting of his total punches and only 31 percent of his power shots.  Compubox stats show the one-sided nature of this fight as Lopez had more rounds with more punches connected and he threw more punches, connected on more, and had a higher percentage of punches connected.  While two judges had this fight closer at 115-113, the 117-111 score was more accurate.
