JAKE PAUL was one of many boxers to hit out at Teofimo Lopez after the former lightweight champion insisted he easily beat George Kambosos Jr.

The Brooklyn native, 24, had his WBA, WBO, IBF and Ring belts ripped away in New York after losing a split decision against his Australian opponent in a 12-round war.

After predicting he would knock out Kambosos Jr in the opening round, Lopez was himself floored inside the first three minutes.

Though he did manage to send the 28-year-old crashing to the canvas in the tenth round with a brutal overhand right.

However it was too little, too late, as Lopez was beaten to the punch for the majority of the fight, with Kambosos Jr deservedly having his hand raised as the winner.

But incredibly, he declared that he won the bout, leading to his own fans booing him, before insisting he won 10-2 on rounds.

Lopez remarked: "He’s a hell of a fighter, but I won tonight, everybody knows that.

“The referee raised my hand. I won tonight, I don't care what anybody says. 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 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, I am as real as they come, and this is the takeover man, we don’t stop, we keep coming."

Before adding: "At the end of the night, I scored it 11-2 -10-2."

The boxing world were left annoyed by his comments, as YouTuber-turned fighter Paul posted a picture of Lopez on the deck on his Instagram story.

Captioning the photo in a speech bubble over Lopez's head, he said: "I'm definitely winning this fight."

Meanwhile former super-featherweight king Jamel Herring tweeted: "Teo, you my guy, but let my man have his moment. Bounce back, and come back stronger."

Two-time Olympic champ and middleweight supremo Claressa Shields posted: "Champions take losses really hard…. But umm this ain’t it.

"It’s hard losing though…. But it’s still just shake hands, congrat (sic) the other fighter & go back to the drawing board."

Lopez's lightweight rival Devin Haney stated: "Oh yeah Teo has gone crazy… I told y’all this already."

Boxing reporter Dan Rafael commented: "Lopez ranting he won the fight 10-2. He is not in reality."

Fellow boxing journalist Jeandra Lebeauf said: "Oh Teo, come on man. Just shake the man’s hand and keep it pushing.

"Sometimes you just have to hold your L. It is what it is. Just like Loma had to hold his L, it’s Teo’s turn."

Filipino legend Manny Pacquiao was effusive in his praise for Kambosos Jr, who extended his perfect record to 20-0.

He tweeted: "Congratulations to my friend, George Keambosos Jr, on an epic win!

"You helped me in so many of my past fights, I hope our hundreds of rounds of sparring helped you in some way tonight. I’m proud of you."

Former Canucks F Jake Virtanen charged with sexual assault

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Former Vancouver Canucks forward Jake Virtanen has been charged with sexual assault following an investigation.

Vancouver police said Thursday that one count of sexual assault has been lodged against the 25-year-old stemming from an incident on Sept. 26, 2017, when Virtanen was playing for the Canucks.

Police launched an investigation in May 2021 after a 23-year-old woman filed a complaint. Virtanen was placed on leave by the Canucks after the allegation came to light and his contract was bought out the following month.

A civil lawsuit filed alleged that Virtanen took the woman to a hotel in West Vancouver and assaulted her as she repeatedly pleaded with him to stop. Virtanen denied the allegation in a response filed in June 2021, saying the pair had consensual sex, and denied that the woman “expressed any indication, verbal or physical, that she did not want to engage in physical activity.”

The case has not gone to court.

Virtanen is scheduled for an appearance in Vancouver Provincial Court on Feb. 10. He has been playing hockey this season for Spartak Moscow of the Russian-based KHL. The team, however, has been inactive since Jan. 10, when the league suspended its season due to COVID-19 outbreaks. Spartak’s next scheduled game is Feb. 22.

Selected sixth overall by the Canucks at the 2014 NHL draft, Virtanen had 55 goals and 100 points in 317 regular-season games with Vancouver.
