Lou DiBella reacts to George Kambosos beating Teofimo Lopez

Jake Paul wasted no time in trolling Teofimo Lopez following his upset defeat by George Kambosos.

Lopez was dropped in the first round and struggled to recover as he dropped a split decision in New York last night.

And Paul immediately took to social media to rub salt into Lopez’s wounds.

Posting a picture of the beaten man on the canvas, he added the caption: “I’m definitely winning this fight”.

Paul was referring to Lopez’s post-fight interview during which he claimed he had won by 10 rounds to two.

The YouTube star also made reference to Lopez’s previous comments about Paul not taking boxing seriously, labelling his defeat “karma”.

Lopez was the overwhelming favourite to beat Kambosos but had to recover from an early knockdown.

He dumped Kambosos on the canvas in the 10th round but failed to finish the job and lost the last two sessions to drop to his first professional defeat.

“Cus D’Amato had a great saying, when Muhammad Ali fought an unbelievable puncher in Joe Frazier … ’You hit him with the best right hand you have ever thrown in your life in the first round and change the fight,” Kambosos said.

“That’s what I did, I had that in my head. I had that mentality, that I’m going to hit this guy clean, that I’m going to hit him hard and I’m going to put him down. The fight changed after that.

“If you don’t believe in yourself, you won’t get this far. Back yourself, believe in yourself and you can do it too.

“All respect to Teofimo. He’s a great kid, the build up was the build-up, we’re competitive young guys.

“It was my night and it’s going to be my night for a very long time. I’m the emperor!”

Lopez appeared to be struggling to come to terms with defeat, claiming he won by a large margin.

“He’s a hell of a fighter, but I won tonight, everybody knows that,” Lopez said as he was booed by his home crowd.

“The referee raised my hand. I won tonight, I don’t care what anybody says, 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.

“At the end of the day man, I love you all, I won this fight.”
