Teofimo Lopez vs Josh Taylor in DISCUSSION for possible late Spring Showdown. “WE IN NEGOTIATIONS”

Teofimo Lopez vs Josh Taylor may very well take place late spring as Trainer/Father Teofimo Lopez Sr announced during interviews with Punsh Drunk Boxing youtube channel that both parties has enter into early negotiations. 

“We getting ready for this fight with Josh Taylor hopefully, We in negotiations.” 

Taylor who was scheduled to fight the rematch vs Jack Catterall March 4th which was cancelled due to a Josh Taylor Foot injury. Josh Taylor has suffered a torn plantar fascia which the Timetable for recovery anywhere from 6 to 12 weeks. Catterall team feels it’s a bad idea to keep Catterall inactive with the uncertainties of not knowing exactly when Josh Taylor would be fit to start training camp, so they are deciding to keep Him active for a potential fight in March with an opponent yet to be decided. The unfortunate situation has open the door for a lucrative showdown between Teofimo Lopez vs Josh Taylor Which has been marinating for couple of years now since right after Teofimo Lopez victory Over Vasyl Lomachenko. Both Camps are interested and Bob Arum Top Rank which promotes both Lopez & Taylor is on board and frankly a fight easy to make. Teofimo Lopez and Dad has also insisted of wanting to fight Taylor in his backyard. 

It’s perfectly great timing for both to take this fight. Both would be handsomely paid probably their biggest purse to date. Very well be a PPV event and both coming with something to prove. Critics feel both Teofimo and Taylor had underwhelming performance in their last outing. Josh Taylor would be coming off a long layoff with an injury maybe a perfect time for Teofimo to take advantage of the timing and for Josh Taylor to challenge Teofimo as many feel he has yet fully inserted himself in the division as an elite junior welterweight. 

Taylor vs Lopez maybe the most lucrative in house fight for Top Rank and the promotion leading up to the fight will further create the interest as both fighters got the lip to promote. 

Hopefully this negotiations could cross the finish lines and the boxing world gets to witness 2 of the best fighters go head to head. Neither have shied away from competition if you take a good look at their respected resume. 2 Careers far from waking on eggshells yet 2 careers which is led by legacy reigning supreme.
