Jack Catterall has not given up on his pursuit of a rematch with IBF and WBO super lightweight champion, Josh Taylor, and even goes on to claim Taylor has switched trainers.
Catterall and Taylor locked horns in February in a fight which saw Taylor enter as undisputed champion. Catterall boxed out if his skin in that night and many believed he did more than enough to dethrone Taylor. However, the judges took this away from him, as he very controversially ended up on the wrong end of the decision.
Since the first bout, Catterall has rightfully been calling for a rematch with the Scotsman, with the pair occasionally embroiling in a war of words on social media. Taylor would vacate both the WBA and WBC belts, as he pondered with a decision to potentially move up in weight.
Catterall would sign with BOXXER, the promotional banner that played host to the first bout as he hunts down a rematch with Taylor. Catterall took to Twitter last night to call out Taylor in a statement that suggests Taylor has split with his trainer, Ben Davison. The tweet read: "Evening @JoshTaylorBoxer now you are all settled with your new coach are we having it December 17th? You seem to have gone quiet."

There has been no word from Taylor on a switch in trainers but many fans speculated in the comments who will be training Taylor going forward. A name that popped up frequently was Joe McNally, the trainer of Liam Smith and has recently acquired Irish prospect, Caoimhin Agyarko. One Twitter user stated that he thinks Taylor was pictured with McNally, but followed up by saying that they could be wrong.
Think he was pictured with Joe McNally… ???? could be wrong.
