Fight Preview


At Madison Square Garden this Saturday night, WBO super lightweight champion Josh Taylor faces challenger Teofimo Lopez in a highly anticipated bout that promises to make waves across the boxing community. Here’s everything you need to know before the televised match takes place on June 10.


The Tartan Tornado returns to the ring for the first time since beating Jack Catterall in February 2022. He maintains an unbeaten record of 19-0. He vacated three of his four world titles as he hoped to rematch Catterall. Looking to regain momentum in his career with WBO recognition in New York, he hopes that they uphold expectations that he will do just that.


Lopez has long been considered an unknown in terms of competing against the best in his division; this week will prove whether or not that is the case. Mental errors plagued his performances against Kambosos, Martin and even Vasiliy Lomachenko – as did an occasional tendency for trash talking and quick to blame opponents when confronted.


Let’s check the latest picks, Boxing news, stats and Boxing expert picks for Taylor vs Lopez. We’ve plenty of Boxing predictions for you to consider.


His behavior hasn’t gone over well with boxing fans and he quickly found himself on the outside looking in of the 140-pound division. Taylor could potentially use his quickness and intelligence to exploit Lopez’s weaknesses but she’s an experienced fighter who knows how to counter them.


Lopez could become an unpredictable force at the top of the division if he can conquer his fragile psyche and find stability in his game. A quick fighter with a solid left hand, Lopez has already proven he can knockdown opponents like Diego Magdaleno and Lomachenko.


Lopez is unquestionably more skilled and has proven his worth against top opponents, but mental errors and his own lack of focus have plagued his past performances. Now it is up to Lopez to prove those doubters wrong but it won’t be easy against Taylor’s relentless pressure.


Taylor needs to avoid repeating his errors against Kambosos and find his form from two years ago against Ramirez – his piston-like jab can devastate any opponent when in full flow; if he can recapture that form he should triumph.
