WBO junior welterweight champion Josh Taylor has had enough of the trash talk from Teofimo Lopez.

Lopez, a former unified lightweight champion, will challenge Taylor on Saturday night at the Hulu Theater in New York's Madison Square Garden.

The two fighters recently took part in a joint video-link interview, with Taylor losing his patience and walking out due Lopez's verbal attacks.

"He just talks absolute waffle, just waffles on, makes no sense and I can't be bothered listening to it. It's just boring and you're not even making any sense so I got up and said look I'm away, I'm going to get my dinner and go to bed, see you on June 10," Taylor explained to Sky Sports.

Last week, Lopez conducted an interview where he vowed to make a big statement by taking "the life" of Taylor.

Taylor would rather not deal with Lopez's antics until the night of the fight, but the two rivals will have to go face to face at the final press conference on Thursday and the official weigh-in on Friday.

"I suppose I have to this week and I suppose I'll see him at the press conference and the weigh-in. So I'm looking forward to that," Taylor said. "I think he's got a lot of nerves and a lot of doubts. I think he's got a lot of nervous energy. I think it's all a front."

Carl Moretti, VP at Top Rank, revealed that his company spent thousands for additional security to prevent any physical altercations between the boxers and their camps.

"This press conference on Thursday, we probably spent another $5,000 on security because we've got to get to Saturday. So I think that part of it is what's interesting. They'll be physically together so let's see what happens then. I'm sure they're not going to shake hands and hug and: 'How was your trip to New York?' I don't expect that to happen," Moretti said to Sky Sports.
