The long-awaited rematch between Josh Taylor and Jack Catterall is set for March 2023. After a controversial SD win for Taylor in Glasgow, “The Tartan Tornado” is eager to put an end to the rivalry, or will Catterall even the scales which would warrant a trilogy?
We review the latest Taylor vs Catterall 2 odds with a betting pick for this upcoming WBO super-lightweight showdown.
Taylor vs Catterall 2 Odds
|Josh Taylor||-240 (5/12)|
The current Josh Taylor vs Jack Catterall odds is favoring “The Tartan Tornado” -240 to pick up a second consecutive win over “El Gato”. If you are looking to place a bet on Catterall as a slight underdog to defeat Taylor, then a $100 wager could net a $186 profit.
Taylor was a massive 1/9 betting favorite in his first bout against Catterall, prior to that Taylor was 4/7 to defeat Jose Ramirez. Online betting site Paddy Power famously refunded all bets placed on Catterall that lost against Taylor, stating that the decision “was an absolute robbery”.
Taylor vs Catterall 2 Prediction
After getting past Jack Catterall by a narrow margin, Taylor was ordered to face Jose Zepeda by the WBA. Taylor turned down the request and therefore relinquished his WBC and WBA titles, as he wanted to prove himself against Catterall one more time.
There is no doubt that Taylor underestimated Catterall the first time they fought, the battle saw Taylor struggle at times while he did seem to gain more momentum in the championship rounds. Catterall will have the added confidence going into the rematch knowing the 19-0 record of Taylor breakable and he was marginally close in the judge’s scorecards last February in Glasgow.
Realistically all the pressure is on Taylor to perform here and maintain his world titles and respect among his global lightweight peers. Expect to see some adjustments made to Taylor’s and a much more prepared version of himself that we are usually used to seeing.
There is also a scenario here where Catterall makes this fight unorthodox from the opening bell and aims to get Taylor out of there, knowing how the judges scored the first fight. The odds are less in favor of this outcome, but Catterall by KO/TKO would have some longshot odds once they’re live.
In the end, I think the shock factor that Catterall brought to the first fight won’t be a huge treat for the Scot. Both fighters know what to expect and while Catterall does bring an unusual style that can be awkward for his opponents, stylistically Taylor is the better fighter and more well-rounded.
