Knocking out his opponent wasn't enough for Teofimo Lopez, he felt the need to rub salt in the wounds by busting out the Fortnite' Take the L' dance in celebration.
The 20-year old Honduran-American continued his impressive run of form by producing his seventh career KO and taking his professional record to 9-0.

Teofimo Lopez was very impressive tonight and its not because of the fortnite celebration ...... Ok maybe just a little bit :joy: #boxing- Filiti (@Filiti2) May 13, 2018
The lightweight fought Vitor Freitas on the Linares-Lomachenko undercard and the bout did not last long, Lopez putting the Brazilian on the canvas with an impressive right hand in the first round.
Brooklyn's #TeofimoLopez just scored a KO1 at 1:04 over Vitor Freitas. To put that in persepctive, Lopez went the distance with Juan Pablo Sanchez, who was stopped for the first time in 6 years by @JamelHerring in the 5th of their earlier bout.- Greg Logan (@GregLogan1) May 12, 2018
With the 25-year old lying helpless on the floor, Lopez, well aware that the fight was finished, starting throwing some shapes - flicking out his legs side-to-side and making an 'L' sign before finishing his sequence with a backflip.
With his excellent boxing skills and charisma, Brooklyn native Lopez could well develop into something special.
As far as I can recall, he's the first boxer to bring the Fortnite craze into the squared circle, but plenty of footballers have been performing celebrations from the smash-hit game.
Atletico Madrid star has adopted it as his new goal celebration, notably doing it after scoring in the Madrid derby and against Arsenal in the Europa League semi-final first leg.
