Jack Catterall Takes Taylor Rematch Postponement in Stride

After another postponement of their 2022 rematch, junior welterweight “El Gato” Jack Catterall (28-1, 13KO) has vowed to send one-time undisputed champion Josh “The Tartan Tornado” Taylor (19-1, 13KO) into retirement.

The boxing public has received disappointing news as El Gato took to social media and updated the fans with a new fight date. In addition, he promised to send his rival packing out of the sport.

Several fans and pundits still believe Catterall was robbed of being named the undisputed champion in February 2022. Then he had to deal with the sting of watching Taylor lose the WBO title to Teofimo Lopez after pulling out of their March 2023 rematch with a broken foot.

Catterall vowed to take out his rival when the fight was supposed to have taken place on April 27. With Taylor suffering another injury, one can understand El Gato’s frustration.


The Tartan Tornado has been looking like a mere gust of wind, lately. His performance against Lopez was lackluster as he was outboxed and overpowered en route to a unanimous decision loss. Some fans are already calling the one-time undisputed champion a fragile fighter.

At 33 years of age, continuous injuries make things even harder to return to the ring. Thusly, fans question if this rematch is doomed to never take place. In addition, suffering back-to-back injuries is a clear indication Taylor’s body is breaking down.

In this author’s opinion, even if the fight were to happen, Taylor more than likely would be entering the ring heavily compromised. This could also diminish a victory by Catterall, who is clicking on all cylinders.

All we can do is wait and hope there are no more issues, and the fight happens according to plan on May 25.
