Josh Taylor’s Betting Outlook vs Lopez
Taylor has been outside of the ring for over a year and his last bout was quite controversial with many thinking he should have lost.
‘Tartan Tornado’ previously held IBF, WBA, and WBC gold but had those stripped from him due to inactivity. Taylor defends his remaining WBO crown and his lineal champ status as The Ring title is also up for grabs here.
This fight is a chance for both men to reaffirm to the sweet science community that they have a lot more left in the tank.
Some recent pedestrian performances, in a relative way, have been had by both with Taylor and Lopez looking to emerge with an emphatic win to reestablish the good faith surrounding them.

Lopez is also coming off of a razor-thin victory whereby many who viewed the fight thought he should have tasted defeat.
The former unified lightweight champion looks to garner further world title accolades in a new weight category as he vies for this 140-pound strap this weekend.
As Lopez eyes becoming a champ over two weight categories, Taylor also seeks that out for his next outing as he has called for the winner of Errol Spence Jr vs Terence Crawford at welterweight.

Josh Taylor vs Teofimo Lopez Prediction
This contest is scheduled for twelve rounds, and I see this one going to the judges’ scorecards.
Taylor has predicted he doesn’t see this fight going beyond the six to eight-round range. I don’t necessarily see that, and oddsmakers leaning towards a points win as opposed to a finish for both fighters is also indicative of that.
I foresee value in pursuing prop bets on this fight going the distance (-165) and Taylor winning via decision (+175).
Pick: Josh Taylor (-175)
