WORLD champion Josh Taylor could face off against Jack Catterall before the end of the year.

Discussions are taking place between representatives for both boxers with a view to the rematch taking place in November.

Taylor, from Prestonpans, successfully defended his four Super Lightweight world titles – WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO – against Catterall in Glasgow in February.

However, many questioned the judges’ decision and thought that Englishman Catterall had won.

Neither Taylor, who now lives in Haddington, nor Catterall have fought since, with negotiations ongoing to get them back in the ring.

Bob Arum, founder and CEO of professional boxing promotion Top Rank, was quoted on social media saying a rematch was being targeted for late November in the UK.

Since the bout, Taylor, who is now 19-0, has vacated both the WBA and WBC belts.

He first became world champion in 2019 when he defeated Ivan Baranchyk at the SSE Hydro.

Taylor then added the WBA title to his collection after a points victory over Regis Prograis in London later that year.

Last year, he travelled to Las Vegas and defeated Jose Ramirez to become undisputed world champion, winning the WBC and WBO titles.
