In what is one of the most highly-anticipated rematches in British boxing history - former undisputed super lightweight champion Josh Taylor and Jack Catterall clash in Leeds on Saturday night.

In the first fight between these two - which took place in Glasgow in 2022 - it ended in a controversial split-decision victory for Taylor.

Many fans and pundits believe Catterall did enough that night to have his hand raised - with the Chorley native's elite jab and accurate 1-2 giving his opponent problems all night.

Since that controversial evening two years ago - the bad blood between Taylor and Catterall has only worsened.
