Tim Cheatham scored it 116-112, Julie Lederman a 119-109 thrashing with Steve Weisfeld having it 117-111.

While he didn’t look like he disagreed with the result, Loma was fuming and stormed out of the ring as soon as Lopez had his hand raised.

It meant the Ukrainian missed the new undisputed king performing his victory somersault followed by doing the ‘snowflake’ on the floor.

Lopez ripped the WBO, WBA and WBC franchise belts from Lomachenko to add to his IBF strap.

Working out how to beat Lomachenko has been compared to a challenge like that of the hit film The Matrix.

But Lopez, at just 23-years-old, had all the answers, stronger and quicker from the start to leave Loma contemplating his future, certainly at lightweight.

Lomachenko rightly was heralded as one of if not THE pound-for-pound kings of boxing.

But from the first bell in The Bubble at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, the 32-year-old was well off the pace.

Lopez, the bigger and stronger man, dominated throughout, and only a late rally in the ‘championship rounds’ gave Loma some credit.

But the damage was done as Lomachenko suffered his second pro loss while as ‘The Takeover’ did just that.

Speaking after his stunning success, Lopez said: “I had to dig deep, man. I’m thankful. I’m grateful. And each and every day, I take that in.

“I thank God first because I couldn’t do it without him. I’m a fighter. I gotta dig in deep. I knew he was coming.

“I didn’t know if they had him up on the scorecards or not, and I love to fight. I can bang, too.

“I don’t care, man. I’ll take one to give one. That’s what a true champion does. I find a way to win.”

However, the current P4P king Jones quickly refuted Khabib’s request.

Writing on Twitter, he wrote: “Until I take that heavily crown, I grant you the spot. Enjoy Champ.”

He then tweeted: “15 world titles, numbers don’t lie.”

‘Bones’ then wrote: “I want to congratulate Khabib for an outstanding career.

“I know he made his father along with millions of fans around the world incredibly proud today.

“May God continue to bless him on his journey.”

The American then added: “Definitely a powerful moment, but my logic is definitely not clouded.”
