Josh Taylor vs Teofimo Lopez: preview

New York's iconic Madison Square Gardens plays host to a much-anticipated title fight on Saturday, as WBO super lightweight champion Josh Taylor squares off against Teofimo Lopez.

The fight marks Taylor's first appearance in the ring since his contentious split decision win against fellow Brit Jack Catterall in February last year. 

Taylor had been lined up for a rematch against Catterall back in March, and had vacated three of his four belts to try and make the fight happen, but was forced to pull out through injury.

Much to the boxing world's surprise, instead of rescheduling that fight, the 32-year-old Scot instead opted for a defensive of his one remaining belt, setting up this WBO super lightweight title fight against Lopez.  

A previous undisputed lightweight champion, having claimed the scalps of Richard Comney and Vasiliy Lomachenko, Lopez is now on a mission to win back his belts after losing his titles to George Kambosos Jr back in 2020

Here's how to watch a Josh Taylor vs Teofimo Lopez live stream, no matter where you happen to be in the world.
