    Broadcasters would gladly put any decent fight on PPV as it minimises their risk massively

    Are you seriously stating that broadcasting boxing events on PPV is without risk to broadcasters? You've not thought this through for more than two minutes.

    Definitely not PPV worthy but I do hope Catterall gets the payday he deserves.

    100% agreed. Taylor, while a terrific fighter, probably sorely underrated for his achievements, (especially for unifying in under 20 fights), is not an AJ type star, is known really by more of the hardcore fan, although he's probably a bit better known since his documentary was aired, and this isn't PPV worthy.

    He's also a bit of a knob.

    I like Catterall, good fighter, and I think he should have got the decision last time out, but I think he caught Taylor at a low ebb, fought out of his skin, and still couldn't get over the line (according to the judges anyway).

    If Taylor does the weight well, I think he wins handily

    Yeah, will be announced shortly. Shalom wanted to do it in Manchester but Taylor insisted on Scotland. They wanted to do it before Xmas but the OVO Hydro was all booked up.

    I know I'm a Taylor fanboy but his camp was dreadful last time. He had a knee injury which put the fight date back, then got covid and a chest infection after it was rescheduled but didn't want to move it again, so his weight cut started far too late. He was in a hotel room the night before wrapped in hot towels to get the last few pounds off.

    A fully fit Josh beats a fully fit Jack. I expect a Yarde v Arthur 2 type scenario.

    Yep, quite possibly this.

    Taylor just didn't look like Taylor in the first fight, quite how much of that was down to Catterall, or down to his (admittedly poor) camp will be decided in the rematch.

    First fight was boring and neither fighter has a particularly big fan base. I’m Scottish and don’t know anyone that likes Taylor. Everyone can see he’s a total pr*ck.

    This will bomb on PPV and no chance I’d pay for it and I probably pay for more PPV’s than most folk on here.

    If Josh Taylor is 100% then he wins easily over Catterall. Written with the utmost respect, Catterall does not belong to the world's elite. Taylor does.

    I would pay if I had any confidence in the refereeing or scoring.

    So it's the radio for me.
