Lopez defeats Claggett on points (video)

American Teofimo Lopez defended his WBO bantamweight title by defeating Canadian challenger Steve Claggett by a unanimous judges' decision on Boxing Night in Miami, USA.

Lopez (21-1, 13 KOs) landed the cleaner, harder and more accurate punches throughout the fight. He often stepped back to the ropes to give Claggett (38-8-2, 26 KOs) a head start, making the fight competitive and interesting for the fans. Nevertheless, the American dominated every round and was deservedly declared the winner by unanimous decision of the judges: 120-108 (twice) and 119-109.
