Cam Awesome, Lenroy Thompson, lost his semifinal bout tonight to Cuban heavyweight Lenier Pero but “won” the wacky postfight interview with ESPN, making references to himself being the “Taylor Swift of boxing” and insisting, as the way a man who changes his name to Awesome only can, that he was the real winner.

Awesome takes on geopolitics, linguistics, and social media in the manic and weird interview which at this point we really must just insist you watch for yourself.
