Where To Watch: 


Why Bet on Josh Taylor?

With 13 knockouts in 19 fights, Josh Taylor enters this one unbeaten. His most recent match was a 12-round split-decision victory over Jack Catterall.

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.

He defends his remaining WBO crown and his lineal champ status as The Ring title is also up for grabs here.

Why Bet on Teofimo López Jr.?

Teofimo López Jr. enters with an 18-1 (13 KO) record. His most recent match was a six-month-ago victory over Sandor Martin in a 10-round split decision.

In Lopez’s razor-thin victory, it was also questioned if he was victorious, as 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.

Final Betting Analysis – Josh Taylor vs. Teofimo López Jr.

Given the quality of opposition López presents, Taylor would stand to gain even more from a victory. That of course, if he were to prevail in this eagerly anticipated contest.

Teofimo is a more interesting challenger for Josh due to his well-known status and global appeal. The local will need to improve on his game against Vasiliy Lomachenko if he wants to beat the Scottish fighter.

If López wants to compete in a division that, while not as talented as welterweight, still has strong competition, he will need to dramatically improve upon his lackluster showing in his most recent bout against Martin in December.

Taylor would be in danger from the challenger’s power and explosiveness, but the latter would find it difficult to get past the champion’s technical prowess and ring smarts, and we place our bet on the Scottish Fighter.

Go for a victory for Josh Taylor at -208. If you bet $100 at such odds you could get $48.08 for a total payout of $148.08.
