Neutral ground and availability.
Sharing with Warrington?
Not unless Josh needs a no name tune-up. I think Taylor-Catt sells the place out.

Could have been PPV if done straight after!

Daz pay well, but of course without a title on the line it won't be great

Taylor $150k, Catteril $75k
cheers, I never have a clue and always guess massive purses.

I'm guessing, but the reason many fighters fall on hard times is because they never earned in the first place

I think he'll be ok if he does it right, gives too many advantages away at Welter

Looks all out of focus, didn't look good at all.

Agree with the above posts, thought he actually looked unwell today at that conference to be honest.

Catterall needs to do the same again, they won't rob him twice. Can't see anything but a Catt win.

Not sure Sam really helped at the presser, or the guy in Taylor's corner. Sam came across making it all about him from what I saw.

There is genuine needle between the two.

Taylor appeared to have brought some shouty people with him, made it all a bit cringe for me.

I'm buzzing for this. Where does Jack go if he wins? I don't think he has the power to keep of Matias. I can't see Lopez fighting him. He hasn't got much to gain money wise from Smith or Asim. It would be tricky for the promotor I think. I'm hoping he does the business. That Taylor verdict made me hate boxing for a bit and I was a huge Taylor fan

I did enjoy the presser to be fair.

Seen McGrail whoaaaaaa amazing amateur vs the guy who beat him rematch is on the undercard.

Hopefully a decent undercard but I’ll definitely be tuning in and good that it’s on the standard subscription.

good that he's taken the rematch, was a bad knockout for McGrail.

there is so much needle in the main event.

Looks like he's aged badly in such a short space of time .

JT tends to look pasty and a bit washed out but this never stopped him being a decent world champ .

However this time around with lay off / maybe struggling at the weight / age / wear and tear ....

plus the foot or leg issue that means he doesnt do road work anymore I am leaning heavily in to a catterell win on points and Josh calling time - dont see any success for him at 147 given how stacked the division is so moving up is only going to end badly .

Did you see Taylor on Talksport today? At best, he was 'hungover.'

When Catterall shook his hand at the end he said 'you're sweating a lot.'

Think he's got a bit of an issue with the drink? I can't see it
