Jack Catterall doesn’t think the rematch against Josh Taylor will happen.
Catterall is coming off a controversial split decision to Taylor back in February 2022, in a fight most fans thought Catterall won. Since then, the talks of a rematch have been fluid but nearly a year since their fight the rematch hasn’t been booked.
Now, reports have since emerged that Taylor will face Teofimo Lopez which is frustrating for Catterall.
“You know what it is, we was obviously meant to fight Josh, November, December, February, March, and I’m done waiting for it now,” Catterall told iD Boxing. “You have seen this morning the reports of Taylor-Teofimo, they’re talking about fighting. So we kind of got the March 25th date as a keep-busy, active date. I’m not convinced the Josh fight is going to happen now. He’s pulled out more than once.”
If Josh Taylor does end up fighting Teofimo Lopez next time out, Jack Catterall says he hopes to face Regis Prograis. He does think it would be a very fun fight and hopes it can get done very soon.
“It’s a difficult position to be in,” Catterall said of his situation. “I wanted the Josh fight. I believe I beat Josh and it would have been nice to put that to bed. That’s out of the question now. I want the biggest fights possible. I talked about it the last couple of weeks. I want the biggest fights possible. I want the Regis Prograis fight. In my opinion, we both beat Josh, so we have that in common. And it’s an easy fight to be made. That’s the fight that I want now. Regis is up for the fight and it’s a great fight. We’ll see how it unfolds [in] the next couple of weeks.”
