Boxing Match: Josh Taylor says he’s staying at light-welterweight for two reasons: to fight Jose Zepeda and to renew his rivalry with Jack Catterall, whom he has vowed to “shut up” if he gets his rematch.

Jack Catterall has been vocal on social media about his desire for a rematch after controversially finishing second on the judges’ scorecards when the pair met in Glasgow in February when all four major super-lightweight titles were on the line.

Despite being knocked down in the eighth round and seemingly out-landed during what he admitted was an underwhelming performance, Taylor was awarded a split decision victory to retain his undisputed championship, with judge Ian John-Lewis subsequently downgraded by the British Boxing Board of Control after scoring the bout 114-111 to the Scot.

Taylor has since defended the outcome, saying that while he understands Catterall’s disappointment, his rival’s reaction has fueled his motivation should the two meet again.

“He’s coming across a little bit desperate,” Taylor told Sky Sports. “I can understand where he comes from, he felt like he won the fight, I’d be disappointed as well.

“But I wouldn’t be moaning and groaning the way he’s going on and on, it’s just ridiculous.
