For the third time, the grudge rematch between WBO junior welterweight champion Josh Taylor and Jack Catterall has been postponed after Taylor suffered a foot injury. The return has previously been slated for dates in December, February, and March, and now will be pushed back again. Taylor won a controversial decision over Catterall last February in a bout for the undisputed 140lb world title. Taylor has since relinquished three of the belts and only holds the WBO version.
By coincidence, both fighters attended Saturday night’s Smith-Eubank Jr clash in Manchester and were seated two seats apart. They started jawing at each other, stood up, and had to be restrained by security. Catterall was then moved to another location.
Josh Taylor became undisputed champion and all of a sudden…. his career has just become strange as hell.
Maybe he was handed those belts
Let’s see if Taylor gets reamed for the postponement liked Charlo did on this site…I’ll wait…
yea Taylor becomes undisputed and the organizations strip him why havent any of the other undisputed champions been dismantled?
I think the WBA stripped him and he just willingly gave up the other two. Catterall is probably his biggest money fight at the moment after the first fight and there was no reason to risk it by fighting Subriel Matias and whoever the WBC had at the time – I think it would have been Zepeda.
Because he is not marketable. And it’s a shame….
And not to mention the jawing with Catterall that interrupted the Smith/Eubank fight and got Catterall moved to another section…what a despicable human being…he needs to post pictures on the internet of his injuries as well.
Enough of Josh Taylor.. time for everyone to move on without him. He can comeback when ready at whatever weight but for now the man is Prograis. Garcia, Lopez, Ramirez with Haney coming up soon. Let’s see any combination of these fighters. You can throw Catterall in the mix as well.
Taylor is shitting his career away..
One of them really don’t want to fight.
