Taylor vs. Lopez prediction
This has the potential to be one of the most action-packed, intense fights of the year, with both men willing to take on the other after having held heated face-to-face interviews and made clear repeatedly that they don’t like each other. It will also be an intriguing fight, as both fighters have different styles but their skills are equally matched.
However, they both have in common that they looked bad in their last performances, so they will want to make a big statement. Taylor will want to record a prestigious victory that will serve him to defend his title and set a few interesting fights in the future, while Lopez will be aiming to prove he’s the same fighter that pulled off the upset against Lomachenko in 2020.
Prediction: Josh Taylor wins on points.
