Taylor vs Catterall Rematch Set For February 4th

After a full year of back and forth chat, social media feuds and name calling, Josh Taylor and Jack Catterall have agreed terms to a rematch at the beginning of next year.

The pair will meet almost exactly one year on from their first encounter, in which Taylor got the nod on the judges’ scorecards, much to the dismay of the boxing public. The pair are set to do battle once again for super-lightweight supremacy.

February 4th is the rumoured date for the rematch, with the SSE Hydro in Glasgow set to be the venue, just like it was for the first encounter.

In the first bout, many people believed that Catterall comprehensively won the fight. However, it was the Scotsman who was awarded the victory thanks to the three ringside judges’ scorecards.

In order to make the rematch happen, ‘The Tartan Tornado’ has been forced to vacate three of his four world title belts. This is purely just as Taylor wishes to grant Catterall his rematch, and end this chapter of his career once and for all with an emphatic victory.

During the first fight, many boxing fans questioned the tactics of Team Taylor. Ben Davison was in the corner for the first night, but Taylor has recently parted ways with his former trainer to team up with Joe McNally.

McNally will head up Taylor’s corner for the rematch. He has some hugely talented fighters on his roster already such as Liam Smith and Caoimhín Agyarko. This will be the first fight of the new Taylor-McNally era.

For Catterall, he trains with Shane McGuigan, who will again be in his corner for the rematch. The Englishman felt extremely hard done by the first time, and is desperate to win this fight once and for all, despite already believing he had done enough earlier this year.

The fight hasn’t been officially announced by either fighter or their teams yet, but it looks like an announcement is imminent for this highly anticipated rematch for world honours in the 140-pound division.
