Josh Taylor makes the first defence of his undisputed Super Lightweight world title today in Scotland. Taylor is a great southpaw who can fight comfortably on the inside or look for counters versus overreaching opponents on the outside.
Jack Catterall is a respectable fighter but won’t offer anything that Taylor hasn’t seen before. He’s been waiting on his title shot for a long time now and in the mean time has fought less than stellar competition which isn’t good preparation for fighting someone as good as Taylor.
Taylor looks very motivated for this fight and seems to be taking it seriously so it’s hard too see him losing. I expect him to be patient early on before catching Catterall in round 4 or 5 which will swing the fight firmly in his favour. After the turning point he’ll fight Catterall on the inside and wear him down til he wins by TKO in the 10th or 11th round.
