A Josh Taylor-Jack Catterall rematch looks set to go down on November 26.
Boxing Scene are reporting that the two Brits will lock horns once again after their still talked about Undisputed World Title fight in February.
On that night at the OVO Hydro in Glasgow Taylor retained his four Super Lightweight world titles with a hotly debated split decision win.
Catterall will now return to the same venue looking to the right the wrong in his eyes.
The fallout still lingers on to this day after the majority of viewers confidently believed the challenger had done more than enough to have his hand raised.
Five months on and Taylor is now the Unified Champion having vacated the WBA and WBC titles to clear a path for the rematch to happen.
Taylor’s promoters Top Rank will stage the event which will be broadcast on ESPN+ in America. UK fans will be able to watch the fight either on Sky Sports or Sky Sports Box Office.
The Scot has already made it clear that the rematch with Catterall is the only fight he wants.
“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.”
One of the barriers that looked like preventing a second fight was whether Taylor would stay at 140lbs.
After the win against Catterall ‘The Tartan Tornado’ had indicated, he would move to Welterweight in a bid to become a two-weight world champion.
Taylor has attributed his performance in February to a lack of motivation and 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 hasn’t been impressed by Taylor’s words and actions since their fight 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.”
