Former undisputed super lightweight champion Josh Taylor and archrival Jack Catterall had to be separated during their face-off at the launch press conference ahead of their grudge rematch on April 27 at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, England.

The sworn enemies have been embroiled in a heated war of words since February 2022 when Taylor won a hugely controversial split decision to retain his then-undisputed 140lb crown. The decision caused outrage among some boxing fans and the two have been at loggerheads ever since.

  • The absurd veredict in the first fight ruined Catteral boxin career, because it could have been for him somenthing similar to what happened to George Kambosos, now not a chance to have that whatsoever.

    • Many fighters have ‘recovered’ from bad decsions. At least he has an opportunity to avenge the ‘loss’.

  • Taylor didn’t appear at all good for some reason at this press conference. Looked like someone who has been drinking far too much. Suspect Catteral may beat him this time

  • This is one of those better-late-than-never fights and should be Catterall’s to lose because his preparation and motivation must exceed that of his opponent. Some boxers never get a chance at revenge and this will be his moment.

  • Did anyone actually see this fight well I did and it sucked the Cantrell guy did nothing but hold they should have taken at lease 3 points from him somebody watch and comment on it…. Iam a boxing fan but alot people probably not interested see them anyway.
