Josh Taylor v Jack Catterall 2: New fight date, time, undercard & how to watch

Josh Taylor and Jack Catterall will meet again in a hotly-anticipated rematch in Leeds on Saturday 25th May.

Scotsman Josh Taylor was awarded a controversial points victory over Chorley fighter Jack Catterall when the pair last met in Glasgow in February 2022, with the Tartan Tornado retaining his undisputed light-welterweight titles.

Given the contentious nature of the result of this first bout, in which Catterall floored Taylor in the eighth round, there has been talk of a rematch ever since, with the two boxers initially set to fight again in March of last year before the Scot sustained a foot injury in camp.

The rematch was then set for 27th April in Leeds, but another Taylor withdrawal - due to an eye injury - means we will have to wait until Saturday 25th May.

Taylor will go into the fight off the back of his first professional defeat against American Teofimo Lopez in June 2023, whilst Catterall is on a two-fight win streak since his loss to his Scottish rival having defeated Darragh Foley and Jorge Linares last year.

Josh Taylor v Jack Catterall 2 - Which belts are on the line?

A former undisputed light-welterweight champion, having held the WBA, WBC IBF, WBO and The Ring titles, Josh Taylor no longer has any belts to his name following his defeat to Teofimo Lopez last year.

This means no belts will be up for grabs when Taylor rematches Catterall, but a victory for either highly-rated fighter would propel them firmly into the world title picture.

Josh Taylor's record

19-1 (13 KOs)

Josh Taylor has a professional boxing record of 19-2.

Winning a gold medal for Scotland at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Taylor made a rapid rise in the professional ranks and won the Commonwealth light-welterweight title in just his seventh pro bout against Englishman Dave Ryan in October 2016.

The Tartan Tornado won his first world title - the IBF light-welterweight title - when defeating Ivan Baranchyk in Glasgow in the quarter-finals of the World Boxing Super Series in May 2019.

The Scotsman would then become unified world champion by beating Regis Prograis in the Super Series final at the O2 Arena in London in October 2019, adding the WBA and The Ring titles to his IBF strap.

In May 2021, Taylor became the first British fighter to become an undisputed world champion in the four-belt era after earning a unanimous points victory over WBC and WBO champion Jose Ramirez in Las Vegas.

The Prestonpans fighter then faced mandatory challenger Jack Catterall in his first defence of his undisputed status, with Taylor declared the winner of a gruelling contest in very controversial circumstances.

33-year-old Taylor was handed his first professional defeat in June 2023 by American Teofimo Lopez in a one-sided contest in New York City, relinquishing his remaining WBO and The Ring light-welterweight titles in the process.

Jack Catterall's record

28-1 (13 KOs)

Born in Chorley, Lancashire, 30-year-old Jack Catterall won his first professional title in his ninth pro bout, beating Nathan Brough via TKO in the second round to collect the vacant Central Area light-welterweight title in 2014.

El Gato won the vacant WBO European light-welterweight title and vacant WBO Inter-Continental light welterweight title in his next two bouts against Tom Stalker and Cesar David Inalef.

Catterall retained his WBO Inter-Continental title on six occasions before becoming British champion against Tyrone Nurse at the First Direct Arena in Leeds in October 2017.

The Chorley fighter proceeded to win his next seven fights, including a unanimous points victory over domestic rival Ohara Davies in October 2018, to set up a shot at the undisputed light-welterweight titles against fellow undefeated boxer Josh Taylor.

A big underdog going into this undisputed clash, Catterall delivered a brilliant performance in Glasgow, dropping Taylor in the eighth round, before losing out on the judges scorecards in a hugely controversial decision.

Since this first meeting with Taylor in February 2022, Catterall has won his two subsequent fights against Darragh Foley and Jorge Linares.
