JACK CATTERALL and Josh Taylor are two of the best unbeaten fighters Britain has to offer in 2019 and there’s every chance they could end up colliding in the future.

Catterall is undefeated in 23 pro fights and is the mandatory challenger for WBO super-lightweight champion Maurice Hooker. He is pencilled in for a keep-busy fight on April 27 as he waits for details of his first world title shot to be confirmed.

Taylor, meanwhile, has avoided defeat in 14 pro fights and is gearing up for a World Boxing Super Series semi-final against Ivan Baranchyk in Glasgow on May 18. If Taylor wins that, he will take the Russian’s IBF super-lightweight title and advance to the final of the WBSS, where he will face either Regis Prograis or Kiryl Relikh, the current WBA titleholder.
