Josh Taylor - To Win Fight @ 13/10

The press conferences have been great and the mutual loathing of each other is genuine, which is always a good thing because nothing beats authentic animosity leading into a fight.

I do feel that Josh Taylor is going to perform a lot better than he did in the first fight, but Jack Catterall is such a good fighter, and I am really finding it difficult to call a winner here.

I will probably side with Taylor, but it's a tough call.

Peter Fury

Draw or Technical Draw @ 14/1

I have always been a big fan of Jack Catterall, ever since I first saw him up close at a small hall show a couple of years ago.

I remember watching him and being pleasantly surprised at how calm he was with his work; it's a great trait to have as a fighter, especially when you are in real pressure fights and pressure situations.

They both have very good teams behind them, they are both elite-level fighters, and I know there have been a lot of politics involved, so it's just nice to see the fight taking place.

Jack Catterall - To Win Fight @ 8/13

Initially, in the first couple of rounds, both fighters may try and do something a little bit different because this is now a different fight to the first.

Yes, as Jack Catterall said in one of the press conferences, the next round will essentially be the 13th round and not the first, so we can expect them to both come out a little bit quicker having already had that feeling out process a couple of years ago.

I really don't buy into this narrative that Josh Taylor isn't as good as he once was all because he was beaten by Teofimo Lopez, who is a phenomenal fighter.

But Jack is a phenomenal fighter too, and I feel that he will have enough to get the win.

Josh Taylor - To Win Fight @ 13/10

Josh Taylor caught Jack Catterall at the wrong time in 2022.

He had just come off of his first professional defeat, there was no pressure there at all for Jack, and Josh, by his own admission, severely underperformed.

A lot of people are now writing Josh off in this fight, but there is huge pressure on Jack Catterall.

Josh can just go out there, be the Josh Taylor that we know he can be, perform and get the job done; nicely too - I am excited!

Carl Frampton
(Former world champion)

Josh Taylor - By Decision or Technical Decision @ 5/2

I knew that it was going to be a really tough fight for both guys when they met in 2022, but Josh Taylor had fought at a far higher level than Jack Catterall had ever been at.

My feeling is that Josh may have overlooked Jack in the build-up to that fight. I think you have to give Josh all the credit in the world for taking the fight at 140lbs.

Who has learned the most from the first fight? I would say Josh probably.

Nigel Travis
(Boxing trainer) 

Jack Catterall - To Win Fight @ 8/13

I only see one outcome in this fight - a Jack Catterall victory.

Whatever Josh's plan is, I believe that Catterall will have the answer to it - I really do. It's not just having confidence in your fighter, sometimes fighters lose, but I just really believe that Jack has Josh's number.

I will tip my cap and acknowledge the greatness of Josh, but sometimes fighters just have an opponent's number, and I believed that Jack had his number two years ago, and I believe he has his number now.

Kalle Sauerland
(Boxing promoter) 

Josh Taylor - To Win Fight @ 13/10

I'll be honest, I didn't think too much of Jack Catterall ahead of the Josh Taylor fight but he really impressed me, and I think he is continuing to learn and improve all of the time.

But that said, I have got to go with my man Josh Taylor, because, as everyone knows, we do have big history together.

He is fantastic and when he is in form, he is unstoppable. He's nasty, vicious and he just has to get that grip back. If he does, which I believe he will, then he wins the fight.

Matt Macklin
(Boxing pundit)

Jack Catterall - By Decision or Technical Decision @ 13/8

Jack Catterall may just have Josh Taylor's number, you know!

He is crafty, a good boxer. I don't know - it is a great fight and there is now far more spice and needle in this one, because of everything that happened last time and has been said since.
