Like Josh Taylor, Jack Catterall has taken some steps of his own to secure a rematch.
Catterall reportedly signed a multi-fight agreement with BOXXER, the UK-based promotion confirmed Friday morning.
“I have wanted to fight Josh Taylor ever since our last fight so I’m very grateful to today announce that Probellum and Richard Schaefer have been true to their word,” Catterall said.
“I have now signed a multi-fight deal with Sky to allow the fight to take place.”
According to Boxing Scene, the move allows Catterall to enter a rematch with unified light welterweight champion Josh Taylor, though it has not been officially confirmed yet.
But reports have said that the two already have a targeted date for the second meeting, which is November 26 at The OVO Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland. This is the same venue as their first meeting, which ended in a controversial split decision victory in favor of Taylor. Taylor retained his undisputed status with the win.
But after much backlash, Taylor vacated two of his four belts to get him closer to the requested rematch.
By vacating the two titles, he also skipped two mandatories, Alberto Puello and Jose Zepeda.
The vacant WBC strap will now be up for grabs by Regis Prograis and Zepeda. Jose Ramirez had a chance for the title, but pulled out due to his upcoming wedding.
Many fans have argued that Catterall dominated Taylor in the February fight; Catterall even scored an eighth-round knockdown. Taylor fought back late, but it was enough for the judges.
