Josh Taylor vs Teofimo Lopez Preview, Prediction & Odds
Josh Taylor will face a tough opponent in Teofimo Lopez who has 18 wins, 1 loss and 13 knockouts. Lopez, who is based in Las Vegas but originally from Brooklyn, New York, is just 25 years old and poses a huge threat to Taylor, who is 32 and has a perfect record of 19 wins and 13 knockouts.
Given the quality of Lopez’s gifts, Taylor would benefit even more if he were to win this hotly anticipated contest.
Teofimo Lopez is an even more interesting opponent for Taylor due to his celebrity status and global appeal. Lopez will need to improve his game against Vassily Lomachenko if he wants to beat Taylor. If Lopez wants to compete in a division that, while not as talented as the welterweights, still has strong competition, he will need to drastically improve on his lackluster showing in his last fight against Martin in December.
Taylor would be in danger from Lopez’s power and explosiveness, but Lopez would have a hard time getting around Taylor’s technical prowess and ring smarts. Whoever can impose their will on the other and throw sharper and stronger punches will most likely win in the end.
