Cam Awesome, aka Lenroy Thompson, lost his semifinal bout to Cuban heavyweight Lenier Pero at the Pan Am games, but won the night anyway after this awkward post fight interview on ESPN.

Awesome made reference to himself being the “Taylor Swift of boxing” and insisting that he was the real winner.

“Then, the second round came and I was like: ‘Oh, okay, I won that round as well. Cam, keep up the good work, you’re truly looking amazing. Some people say you’re the Taylor Swift of boxing.’ I’m not saying I’m the Taylor Swift of boxing, but I’m not not saying I’m the Taylor Swift of boxing.

“And then the third round came and I was like: ‘Oh, they could’ve gave him that round. He did work a little more on the third round.’ But after the fight, I was like, ‘Oh, Cam, freedom beat communism.’ And then they announced the other corner [had won the decision]. Uhhh, rojo, as they will say in Español, which is not ESPN Deportes. For the bilingual viewers, I feel they can appreciate that.”

That was awesome.
