Taylor vs. Catterall Rematch Set: Leeds Arena to Witness Explosive Showdown

Taylor vs. Catterall Rematch Set: Leeds Arena to Witness Explosive Showdown

In a long-awaited development, the stage is finally set for Josh Taylor and Jack Catterall to settle their bitter feud once and for all. After months of anticipation, BoxingScene.com has learned that a date and venue have been agreed upon for their highly anticipated rematch.

The showdown is slated to take place at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on April 27th, pending any unforeseen last-minute obstacles. Sources close to the situation have confirmed that Catterall has already inked his end of the deal, with Taylor’s signature being the final piece needed for an official announcement.

The rivalry between Taylor (19-1, 13 KO’s) and Catterall (28-1, 13 KO’s) has been brewing since their controversial clash in February 2022. Meeting in Glasgow for Taylor’s undisputed super lightweight title, Catterall’s masterful performance appeared to outshine Taylor’s efforts for much of the bout. However, Taylor’s resilience saw him survive a knockdown in the eighth round and ultimately retain his titles via a disputed split decision.

The contentious outcome fueled heated exchanges between the two fighters, with tensions escalating in the aftermath of the bout. Taylor, facing mandatory challenges, eventually vacated his WBC, IBF, and WBA belts, while also losing his WBO super lightweight title to Teofimo Lopez in a lopsided contest last June.

Meanwhile, Catterall stayed active, notching victories over Darragh Foley and Jorge Linares in the interim. His impressive performances have only added fuel to the fire, as he seeks redemption and vindication in the rematch against Taylor.

With both fighters eager to settle the score and stake their claim as the true champion, the Taylor vs. Catterall rematch promises to deliver an electrifying showdown for boxing fans worldwide. Stay tuned for further updates as the anticipation continues to build towards this highly anticipated event.
