WBO junior welterweight champion Josh Taylor will be looking for a lot of payback when he faces Jack Catterall in a rematch, which is targeted to take place in the first quarter of 2023.

Back in February, Taylor won a controversial twelve round split decision over Catterall.

In that particular fight, Taylor was the reigning undisputed junior welterweight champion.

However, in order to make the Catterall rematch a reality - he was forced to vacate the WBC, WBA and IBF titles - as all three sanctioning bodies had ordered him to make mandatory defenses.

Over the last 10 months, Taylor and those close to him have taken abuse from outrage fans.

The ongoing drama has only fueled Taylor's desire to do a real number on Catterall.

“Some people think he won the fight, then cool. That’s what you think, that’s your opinion.  It’s the other sh!t that I’ve been having a problem with, the people attacking myself and my family," Taylor told ID Boxing.

“I’m not really bothered. But when your family is getting sh!t, I definitely got the fire in the belly and the motivation and the hunger and fire to do a number this time and say I told you so, and then to everybody else, a big f---- you.

“It’s going to be a massively different outcome. I don’t think he gets anywhere near me this time. Listen, if he can’t beat me at my worst and I have a very close fight, he’s not going to beat me when I’m anywhere near my best. I bet he’s not going to get anywhere near me. So, that’s all I have to say. I can’t wait and hopefully get the fight announced soon and get it on.”
