Former WBO junior welterweight champion Josh Taylor is very motivated to do some damage in his upcoming rematch with domestic rival Jack Catterall.

The two boxers first met back in February of 2022, with Taylor winning a controversial twelve-round decision to retain the undisputed crown at 140-pounds.

Taylor has since dropped his IBF, WBA and WBC titles - as the mandatory orders were piling up from the sanctioning bodies, and Taylor was gearing up to face Catterall for a second time.

The rematch is slated to take place in early March, with the official announcement coming shortly.

Taylor has since hired a new trainer, Joe McNally, and aims to take a much different approach to the second encounter.

"I've been waiting on this for a long time I've had to let go of belts, I've had to let go of all my belts near enough, I've got the WBO left, just to make this fight happen and prove that I'm a real champion," Taylor told Sky Sports News.

"I just needed a fresh change up in my approach to things. I just felt in my previous camp I was getting taken away from what my natural qualities are and sort of changing my style a little bit too much. I need to get back to my own self.

"I think what I had achieved in 18 fights and in only four or five years as a professional, becoming an undisputed champion, no one's ever done it before in the UK in the four belt era, creating a massive part of history, I just got a little bit complacent. I tried to learn from other athletes and boxers letting complacency creep in but I am only human at the end of the day and it did creep in a little bit but I won't be making the same mistake twice."
