LAS VEGAS (AP) — Teofimo Lopez dominated early and finished strong Saturday night to win a unanimous 12-round decision over Vasiiliy Lomachenko to unify the lightweight titles

Lopez took advantage of a slow start by Lomachenko to build up an early lead, then finished the fight with a big 12th round that left Lomachenko bloodied and beaten on the scorecards. The 23-year-old from Brooklyn became the unified lightweight champion and managed to do what few in boxing thought he could do — outbox perhaps the best technician in boxing.
