The long-anticipated rematch between Josh Taylor and Jack Catterall has been postponed.

The rivals were set to meet in the ring in Leeds on April 27 - two years on from their controversial first bout.

However, an injury suffered by Taylor during his fight camp has led to the rematch being pushed back.

Taylor and Caterall will now go head-to-head on May 25 at the same venue in Leeds.

A Matchroom Boxing statement confirmed: "Josh Taylor has suffered an injury in training and his upcoming fight with Jack Catterall on April 27 has been postponed.

"The fight will now move to May 25 at the same venue in Leeds - live on DAZN. Tickets remain valid for the revised date with refunds for the sold-out event at the First Direct Arena also available, in line with the terms and conditions of our ticket agency partners.

"Peter McGrail's rematch with Ja'Rico O'Quinn will now take place on April 27 at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool. Full details for this NXTGEN event will be announced by Matchroom in due course."

Taylor won the first meeting between the pair back in February 2022 at the Hydro in Glasgow.

The Tartan Tornado won via split decision to retain his titles but Catterall was left furious by the outcome.

And a British Boxing Board of Control investigation was launched into the decision.

After the postponement announcement, Catterall posted on social media: "Apologies to all the fans I’ll be there May 25th.

"All he’s done is stalled the beating he’s going to get and I promise you all I will rid this guy out of boxing once and for all."
