WBO junior welterweight champion Josh Taylor left no stone unturned in his preparation for Saturday's fight against former unified lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez.

Taylor revealed that he did everything in his power to prevent any "spies' from entering his training camp.

The contest will take place at the Hulu Theater in New York's Madison Square Garden.

Taylor finished up his preparations in the United States, which led him to take precautions when it comes to the scenario of spies trying to obtain information.

"He's from just over the water, Brooklyn Bridge so I don't want any sneakies in here and having a sneak peek and spying," Taylor told Sky Sports.

"We've turned the cameras down. It's one of those things where you trust no one. They've been very accommodating and welcomed us with open arms, but we just don't trust anyone and don't want to open the doors.

"We want to keep it closed now it's getting to the real serious end where we're working on specifics. We've closed it down and made sure no one could see anything to get let out."

As BoxingScene.com previously reported, Taylor even took precautions when it came to the officiating, by requesting that his fight with Lopez had diverse judges that were not all based in the United States.

Josh Taylor is confident he will be victorious when he defends his WBO super-lightweight title against Teofimo Lopez. But the 32-year-old is now fully focused on producing a famous victory on US soil and has now blanked out Lopez's pre-fight boasts.

"I'm coming to the Lion's Den. It's basically his backyard. I'm coming over here and I'm going to kick his backside and put his tail between his legs and send him home to think again. We're not thinking about Teo at all, apart from just what we're going to do tactics-wise. We're just focusing on ourselves," Taylor said.
