Josh Taylor and Teofimo Lopez have agreed to fight on June 10th in New York City, with ESPN and ESPN+ airing the event. The fight will take place in Teofimo's hometown, and Taylor will put his WBO light welterweight title on the line against Teofimo. The venue for the fight is yet to be confirmed, but it will be at either Madison Square Garden or the Hula at the Hula Theater in MSG. This is a crucial fight for Teofimo, who has struggled in his last few fights and needs to prove to his fans that he's still mentally in the game. Top Rank is likely concerned about his recent form, especially given his questionable performance against Sandor Martin in December and his lackluster showing against Pedro Campa. If Teofimo loses this fight, it could be a sign that he's no longer at his best.
