Undisputed junior welterweight champion Josh Taylor is willing to have a rematch with Jack Catterall - but maintains the position that it can't happen at 140pounds.
Last month, Taylor won a controversial twelve round split decision over Catterall in Glasgow. Catterall was the mandatory challenger.
The British Boxing Board of Control is investigating the scorecards.
After the fight, Taylor revealed that he struggled to make the junior welterweight limit and planned to move seven pounds north to welterweight.
To split the baby, he's open to the idea of facing Catterall somewhere in-between the two weight classes.
"Of course, I think he deserves it. We'll see what happens down the line - we can have a fight again with Jack, why not. I'm certainly open to it, so we'll see what happens. Most likely at a catchweight. I can't make the weight anymore safely, I don't think. So we'll see how it goes, but I'm keen for a rematch," Taylor said to Sky Sports.
Catterall's trainer, Jamie Moore, said his boxer is very focused right now on becoming a world champion.
"In an ideal world, if the right thing could be done and there was an independent inquiry into it, you'd like to think that the decision could be overturned, but that's not going to happen," Moore told Sky Sports News.
"So the best scenario we feel is that they could enforce the rematch, whether that would take place I don't know. My gut feeling is that Josh would then move up to 147 - he did look tight at the weight - and then Jack gets his opportunity to fight for the vacant titles.
"But he's only mandatory for the WBO, so in itself then lies a problem. You'd like to think that all the governing bodies would then decide that Jack was hard done by, it was a very controversial decision, and let him fight for all the belts. Politically, they've not always worked in sync with each other, the governing bodies, but you'd like to think that in a situation like this, where the vast majority of the boxing world are all reading off the same page, that would happen."
