Taylor now becomes the Eastside hope...
Lopez beat Loma clearer than Taylor beat lesser fighters in Postol and Prograis. Lopez is more skilled, more athletic and won’t be small at 140. He eats Taylor for breakfast.
Us Brits get stick and rightly so for hyping up no marks.
JT is the best fighter we have produced since Calzaghe.
After he meets Ramirez head on and obliterates him I hope one of the big boys at 147 fights him.
Because the likes of Porter, Thurman and DG is an easy nights work
I'd favour Josh, Loma was stinking the joint up that night, looked really out of sorts & was too wary of the naturally bigger framed Lopez. Let's see how Loma does next time out & we'll be able to evaluate that win more.. he's getting on now.. always injured & inactive..
Taylor is bigger than Lopez , he has elite skill level too. I don't think Lopez has the power or physicality to hold off & keep Taylor honest like he could with SFW Loma. Be honest, though Lopez is shorter both he & Taylor probably walk around at 160lbs+.. I can only imagine how badly Taylor would brutalise Nakatani & an ageing Loma!!!
The only fighter that can beat Lopez needs to be great. That's Loma but he got scurred. Who's the next great hope, Taylor? oh, please. That guy hasn't fought anyone like T Lo. Taylor gets stopped. Tough fight but no one can take the kid power and speed.
David Benavidez Sr. said one of his fighters stopped Teo twice in sparring. Different ballgame when you're fighting opponents your own size
There is no guarantee that Lopez's power will translate entirely at 140lbs. Lots of fighters pack a more potent punch at lower weights.
Taylor is skillful, athletic (good, not great athlete), and quite spiteful.
Moreover he's taken flush shots from full-fledged junior welters, including hard-punching Regis Prograis.
Consequently, until we have additional information to evaluate, the question is not whether Taylor can take Lopez's punches, but whether Lopez can take Taylor's.
And we won't know the answer to that question until we see how the kid reacts when he gets tagged by a 140lber with some thump.
Of course, siempre. Every boxer has a kryptonite. I just don't think Taylor is it. Maybe the kid that dropped T LO in sparring twice. Rayo Valenzuela but you know he has to do it when T LO is experienced.
I am not intimating that Taylor is Lopez's kryptonite. In fact, I'm not entirely certain the talented Scott wins a hypothetical matchup.
I'm merely noting that Taylor has less question marks at that weight. I know, for example, that Taylor can hurt and take a flush shot from elite level junior welters/super lightweights. Whether Lopez can remains to be seen.
No. This boxer needs to be in his size and to have good power, excellent stamina and discipline.
Otherwise boxer might be pretty basic and still KTFO Lopez.
If he can't get Loma down, who is blowed up 126 lbs division boxer with long mileage and finish lanky Nakatani, he is beatable by basic boxer with excellent discipline and power.
Boxer in his size aka dublicate of prime Foreman will finish him if lad will not gain more power and decent experience.
Why the heck is everyone talking about a Taylor-Lopez matchup, when Taylor has yet to beat Ramirez?
After Robert the Bruce it's really hard to come with any names other than Sean Connery.
what about fat *******?
Taylor has a lot of advantages. I do think the styles favor Lopez though, that's not nothing.
Lopez has yet to beat Kambosos and he won’t
