Josh Taylor explains why Catterall has nothing to hope for in a rematch


The former undisputed super lightweight champion (up to 63.5 kg) Scot Josh Taylor (19-0, 13 KOs) said that he would approach the upcoming revenge against the Englishman Jack Catterall (25-1, 13 KOs) with a completely different attitude than the first fight, which is bad news for his opponent.

Recall that in February of this year, Taylor controversially defeated Catterall on points by a split decision, having defended all four prestigious titles. Subsequently, Josh lost all belts in turn, except for the WBO, as he refused mandatory defenses in favor of a rematch with Jack.

At the same time, there is no actual date for their re-battle yet.

“Some people think he won our first fight and I don’t have a problem with that. How many people, so many opinions, Taylor philosophizes. “But with the shit that people attack me and my family, I still have a problem. So it doesn’t bother me. But when your family gets into shit, it fires up in me, motivation and hunger to do things differently this time and send everyone to hell.

“There will be a different outcome in the rematch and I don’t think he can match me this time, not even close,” Josh predicts. “Look, if he can’t beat me on my worst day, then he can’t beat me when I’m at my peak. I bet it will be like heaven and earth. I have nothing more to say. I can’t wait for the fight and I hope that it will be officially announced soon.”

Along the way, Taylor does not forget about a possible fight against Teofimo Lopez.
