The moment caused a huge stir in the boxing world

On the undercard of the Lomachenko-Kambosos fight, 29-year-old New Zealand-Australian boxer Cherneka Johnson (16-2, 6 KOs) beat 41-year-old Englishwoman Nina Hughes (6-1, 2 KOs) to win the WBA lightweight title. During the announcement of the winner, the ring announcer made a mistake, initially awarding the victory to Hughes.

The fight was an evenly contested affair, but with a noticeable advantage for Cherneka. However, amidst the audience's astonished shouts, it was announced that the boxer from England had won by a majority decision - 95:95, 96:94, 92:98.

At that moment, Hughes began to celebrate, and her team began to console Cherneka. But the WBA supervisor immediately ran up to the ring announcer and asked him to change everything.

After Lomachenko punched the Australian right in the liver, he took a knee, and the referee counted the knockdown. George got up, but the fight didn't last long. A few seconds later, Vasyl knocked his opponent out with another punch to the body.

It should be reminded that after the victory, Vasyl did not mention Ukraine. During a flash interview in the ring, the 36-year-old native of Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi thanked God, his opponent and "all the people."

Later, the judges' notes were published, which made it clear who won until the 11th round.
