The judges’ unanimous decision in favor of Lopez, with scores of 117-111 and 115-113 twice, has sparked a wildfire of debate among fans. The consensus on social media is a stark contrast to the official outcome, with many arguing that Ortiz’s performance was undervalued.

Post-fight, Lopez was all about looking forward, even eyeing a potential showdown with Terence Crawford, while Ortiz remained steadfast in his belief that he did enough to secure the win.

Last night, the boxing world got a jolt of electricity courtesy of Keyshawn Davis (10-0, 7 KOs), the Olympic standout who’s now making waves as a pro. At just 24, Davis notched what might be his career-defining win so far, taking down the seasoned Jose Pedraza (29-6-1, 14 KOs) with a knockout in round six.

The early rounds saw Davis sizing up Pedraza, like a cat eyeing its prey. By the third and fourth, Davis shifted gears, unleashing a barrage of lead lefts and follow-up flurries that had Pedraza reeling but hanging on. In the fifth, Davis played it cool, sticking to the outskirts before diving back into the fray in the sixth, where he unleashed a storm Pedraza couldn’t weather, prompting the ref to step in and wave it off.

Post-fight, Davis was all swagger, throwing down the gauntlet to the lightweight division. “Been saying I’m the king of 135. Everyone’s all ‘Knockout this, knockout that.’ Just watch me, I said. And what did I do? Stopped him in his tracks,” Davis boasted.

He didn’t stop there, though. Davis threw a verbal jab at Teofimo Lopez, hinting at a jump to 140 for a showdown. “Teofimo’s been yapping a lot. I say, let’s settle it. Step up to 140 and let’s dance. You and your dad, let’s get it on. Or if you’re shaking in your boots, Teofimo, I’m eyeing Navarrete next. After he grabs the WBO, I’m game. It’d be a blast.”
