Josh Taylor has sustained an injury in training and his long-awaited rematch with Jack Catterall has been postponed, fight organisers Matchroom has announced.

Scot Taylor, who won a contentious split decision against Catterall in 2022, was due to face his English rival at the Leeds Arena on April 27 but the fight will now take place on May 25.

Matchroom said: “Josh Taylor has suffered an injury in his training camp and his upcoming fight with Jack Catterall on April 27 has been postponed.

“The fight has been immediately rescheduled for May 25 at the same venue in Leeds – live on DAZN.

“Tickets remain valid for the revised date with refunds for the sold-out event at the First Direct Arena also available, in line with the terms and conditions of our ticket agency partners.”

Former undisputed light-welterweight world champion Taylor, 33, retained his WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO belts against Catterall in Glasgow two years ago.

He has only fought once since when losing his WBO title in June last year to Teofimo Lopez in New York, having vacated his other belts before that loss.
