Josh Taylor vs. Jack Catterall is a match that we have all been waiting for for about 2 years now. In February 2022, Taylor won even though it was very uncertain, it was a tough match. In the end, Taylor won by decision, although the audience's opinion was divided.
Almost 2 years have passed since that match, and boxing fans have been asking for a rematch of this match. Eddie Hearn almost stated that he would like to see this match again and that it is one of the few matches that really needs a replay.
Eddie Hearn really wants this match, and is eagerly waiting to see if this match will happen again.
Meanwhile, Taylor lost his title to Teofimo Lopez and Catterall returned in May and scored a big win against Darragh Foley.
With that, he opened the door for great things, but he certainly has the desire to prove himself once again and beat Josh Taylor. Surely his audience would be satisfied that way. “The plan for Jack is to get him in position to fight for a world title.
However, we also appreciate that the fight with Josh Taylor is a huge fight. Josh is obviously not our fighter, but from reading between the lines he wants to move up in weight. I think he would be happy to fight Jack at a catchweight.
I’ve spoken to Carl Moretti at Top Rank about that fight, they’re definitely willing to entertain it. We need to provide them with some numbers and an offer to make that fight happen in January or February,” Hearn told IFL TV.
“I would like to make that fight, I think it’s a huge fight, it’s a great fight, but he has to deal with Linares first. I know people will say that Linares is getting towards the end of his career, but he’s putting everything into this camp.
This is a dangerous fight for Jack Catterall. He wants Regis Prograis, but it looks like he’s fighting Devin Haney. If there’s no world title, the next best thing for Jack Catterall is Josh Taylor and we’ll do everything we can to make that,” Hearn said.
