One of the biggest fights in British boxing has finally been made with Josh Taylor and Jack Catterall going head-to-head in an eagerly anticipated rematch. 

Two years since they first met in Glasgow for Taylor's undisputed super lightweight title, the bad blood has been simmering between the pair. 

The first meeting ended in a controversial fashion with Taylor being declared the winner on a split decision, despite Catterall managing to knock down the Scotsman who was also deducted a point. 

Ever since the result was announced, it has been a constant source of debate amongst fans, and now the score will finally be settled later this year. 

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Taylor vs. Catterall 2.

    What has been said?

    Taylor, who since the first bout has lost or relinquished his belts, insists there is no love lost between Catterall and him.

    He said: "I won't be going for a pint with him after this fight, that's for sure.

    "I'm not emotionally attached at all, I'm nice and relaxed and chilled out, it's him who's riled up. He tried to put his hands on my throat again. I went to throw a left hook, but I think Eddie [Hearn] copped it on his arm.

    "This is a big fight, there's a lot hanging in the balance. I've had two bad performances, so I need to come back and prove that I'm still one of the best fighters on the planet.

    "I need to put on a good performance, and essentially, I need to get the win. If he comes to fight like he says he is, absolutely fantastic."

    Meanwhile, 'El Gato' is ready for revenge.

    Catterall said: "It's part of my boxing career, it's part of my life and I'm quite content in my life.

    "I've had two fights since then, I've moved on and I'm in a good place. But it must be the same for Josh, day in and day out - when's the rematch happening?
