Boxer Does The Most Ridiculously Disrespectful Celebration After Win

Boxer Teofimo Lopez Jr. impressed on Saturday night when he beat former world title challenger Diego Magdaleno but the 21 year old took the headlines for his celebration not just his performance.

Boxing is a weird sport because things can be very heated in the build up to a fight, then guys literally punch the snot out of each other and then at the end it becomes begrudging respect, there's hugs and everyone's really nice.

David Haye and Tony Bellew were like that, especially for the first fight, with the two men being extremely disrespectful about one another, even before the first fight.

By the time Bellew had shocked everyone by winning, and Haye had lasted several rounds barely able to stand up, the two men suddenly loved up, hugging each other and talking the other up. It made believing any 'beef' for the second fight redundant.

However every now and again the final part of the fight doesn't happen and fighters take the heat to a new level, and that's what happened between Teofimo Lopez and Diego Magdaleno on Saturday.

Lopez stopped his opponent in the eighth round but as he was down he busted out a Fortnite dance, did his usual celebratory backflip and then went right up to Magdaleno to shout at him and fans weren't impressed:

Fans were also right to mention the fact that the referee actually held the 10 count even though it was clear that the fight was over.

Lopez was hardly apologetic after the fight saying, "Teofimo Lopez, whether you hate him or you like him, you're still going to watch him. I perform each every performance. What I'm doing right now is entertaining. 2019, we're ready right now [to fight for a world title]. We have to work in the gym. There's always room for perfection."

If the disrespect doesn't make you dislike him referring to himself in the third person might, certainly Ryan Sidle isn't a big fan.
