VIDEO: Boxer brutally knocks out his opponent and then does a ‘Fortnite’ dance


Today on the undercard of Sergey Kovalev vs Eleider Alvarez, one of boxing’s best prospect Teofimo Lopez(11-0, 9 KOs) brutally knocked out his veteran opponent Diego Magdaleno (31-2, 13 KOs) who was also a two-time title challenger and then went on to celebrate his victory with a popular Fortnite dance.

Lopez who is a 2016 Olympian went on to crush Magdaleno in the seventh round. Lopez thoroughly outboxed his opponent with hard-hitting jabs and crushing uppercuts.

Lopez landed a powerful left to the head to score a knockdown but Magdaleno was saved by the bell. But then in the seventh, he brutalised the Mexican before landing two flush left hooks to the head that knocked him out.

Lopez then went on to celebrate with his signature Fortnite dance moves and then capped off by a home run gesture in front of his opponent which angered Magdaleno’s corner.

Lopez is without a doubt one of the most charismatic boxer’s out there and in the long run, he will definitely bring in crowds to his fight.

In the post-fight interview, Lopez said that he was picking his shot instead of wild punching.

I learned something new. We learned there are going to be tough fighters,” Lopez said. “I didn’t have to throw every second. We were picking our shots. Every time I picked I landed. He wanted to go toe to toe. No, we’re going to be smart about it. I felt like a champ. That’s how I feel.

Teofimo Lopez then said he is ready to fight for the world title by the end of the year. Although before that he is set to fight on the undercard of Terence Crawford and Amir Khan on April 20 at the Madison Square Garden in New York.

Teofimo Lopez, whether you hate him or you like him, you’re still going to watch him,” Lopez said. “I perform each every performance. What I’m doing right now is entertaining. 2019, we’re ready right now [to fight for a world title]. We have to work in the gym. There’s always room for perfection.
