It is now official, the unified super lightweight champion Josh Taylor will expose all his titles (WBA, WBC, WBO and IBF) on February 26, 2022 in a 12-round match against British Jack Catterall at The SSE Hydro, Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom.
Scottish Josh Taylor achieved the unification of the championships of the four most important boxing organizations in the super lightweight category by defeating American Jose Carlos Ramirez by unanimous decision on May 22 in Nevada, USA. Taylor became one of the few boxers to achieve this unification, from which there has been speculation about his future in the ring, a possible fight against the WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford has become quite popular, as well as a fight against former unified lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez. However, the Scotsman decided not to take as many risks and face undefeated Jack Catterall as his first match as the unified champion.
At 31 years old, Josh Taylor’s record is truly good, as he is undefeated in 18 fights of which he has won 13 by knockout, facing good names such as the aforementioned Jose Carlos Ramirez, Regis Prograis and Viktor Postol. On his part, at 28 years of age, the also undefeated Jack Cattedrall registers 26 victories, 13 of them via knockout, where he has managed to defeat important names such as Ohara Davies and Tyrone McKenna.
