Josh Taylor Vs. Jack Catterall Rematch Set For November 26

Josh Taylor vs. Jack Catterall will face off once again, according to Boxing Scene.

Taylor retained his four Super Lightweight world titles with a very debated split decision win at their Undisputed World Title fight back in February at the OVO Hydro in Glasgow.

They will now both be returning to the same venue, and Catterall will be venue looking to the right the wrong in his eyes.

Five months later, the match is still talked about to this day, with many fans believing Catterall did more than enough to have his hand raised.

Taylor is now the Unified Champion having vacated the WBA and WBC titles to clear a path for the rematch to happen.

Top Rank will stage the event, and it will be broadcast on ESPN+ in America. UK viewers will be able to watch the fight on Sky Sports or Sky Sports Box Office.

Taylor has made it clear that a rematch with Catterall is the only fight he wants right now.

“The way he’s acted since and the way he’s coming across on social media makes me want to shut him up. It’s one of the main reasons I stayed at 140 so I could get that fight.”

Taylor possibly moving to Welterweight looked as though it could prevent the fight from happening, however, he says he can still make the 10-stone weight limit.

“I just did it wrong that time. I came into camp far too heavy as well. It led to a terrible night and a terrible performance, but it won’t be like that second time around.”

Catterall has not been impressed by Taylor’s words and believes his rival had no other choice but to take the rematch.

“I believe he’s under a lot of pressure, from the public as well, for this fight to happen.”

“Let’s make no mistake, he’s lost a lot of support since the fight. I think the way he’s carried himself and his words and his actions post-fight.”

“I don’t think there’s any fight for him there at Welterweight at the minute, and there’s certainly no one else at 140.”
