Josh Taylor and Jack Catterall look set to settle a score once and for all in early 2023.
According to ProBoxingFans, Taylor and Catterall look set to duke it out in a highly anticipated rematch on February 4th, 2023.
The pair first collided in February 2022, and Taylor came in as the undisputed super lightweight champion. Catterall, who was the underdog coming in, boxed to orders and even floored ‘The Tartan Tornado’ but found himself on the losing end of the scorecards to the disbelief of many.
Catterall has understandably pushed hard for the rematch, and it seems highly likely that he will get another shot at the Scotsman. Taylor was insistent that he was going to move up in weight following the first encounter, however, he reversed this statement. Taylor has also confirmed a new trainer for the bout, as he has left Ben Davison’s gym to now fight under the tutelage of Joe McNally.
ProBoxingFans further report that the rematch will see ‘The Tartan Tornado’ have the home advantage, as the pair will return to the same venue as the first bout, the OVO Hydro in Glasgow, despite rumours of the bout heading to the AO Arena in Manchester.
The report suggests that the fight looks set to be a pay-per-view event, as it seems to be headed to Sky Sports Box Office. The controversial first bout drew an audience of 900,000 viewers on Sky Sports in February 2022.
