Josh Taylor vs Jack Catterall planned for November in United

Unified super lightweight champion Josh Taylor still has some business to attend to at 140 pounds. Bob Arum, when asked about the possibility of “The Tartan Tornado” facing Terence Crawford, told FightHype that Taylor will face WBO mandatory challenger Jack Catterall this November in the UK.

Taylor (18-0, 13 KO), last seen lifting the WBC and WBO titles from Jose Ramirez, previously stated his desire to face Catterall (26-0, 13 KO) in July and either Crawford or Teofimo Lopez by the end of 2020. Looks like the timetable’s shifted, as Arum confirmed that a hypothetical Taylor-Crawford matchup wouldn’t take place until 2022.

Catterall has been the WBO mandatory since Maurice Hooker held the belt, biding his time while the belt went through two unification matches and a lengthy stint on the sidelines due to COVID. This isn’t a superfight, but he’s a legitimate contender at 140 pounds and sports wins over a number of domestic standouts, including Tyrone Nurse, Tyrone McKenna, and Ohara Davies.
