Lightning Locks predicts this Saturday's fight between Josh Taylor and Jack Catterall and gives you the pick.

Josh Taylor vs Jack Catterall Fight Prediction and Pick

This week marks a landmark event for the UK Boxing Scene as surging PFP superstar Josh Taylor faces the fellow undefeated UK fighter, Jack Catterall. Taylor has been generating an unprecedented amount of steam in the past few years, garnering nothing short of complete unified supremacy in the light welterweight division. Even with a multitude of accolades already possessed under his wing, "The Tartan Tornado" sees to expand his Genghis Khan Esque reign by challenging for more belts and thus growing his empire to unequivocally new heights, or at least heights that can reach the likes of US boxing fans and the general mainstream alike. The mandatory challenger in Catterall poses a blockade for those big money/exposure fights, however, which in the grand scheme of things is sure to rile Taylor's feathers and perhaps even cause the Commonwealth staple to fight recklessly as the bout commences this coming Saturday. 

Error fetching data.

Catterall's high guard and egregious left hook might also pose some issues prematurely into the bout if not addressed swiftly and soundly by Mr. Taylor as well, and the methodic pacing that "El Gato" implements followed by the overall tempo and speed that his punches dictate should be a somewhat formidable cause for concern early on into the bout. The first few rounds should literally be the only bane of Taylor's fighting existence, however, and if the champ can mitigate such calamities he should systematically start breaking Catterall down with ruthless transgression. The fact of the matter is Taylor has faced a myriad of better competition than his opponent, won the belts, and has looked absolutely stunning doing it.

If Catterall can't win the rounds or unload significant damage initially, Josh Taylor is simply going to download the data he needs to wear him down and implement the killing blow sometime in the championship rounds if not earlier. To me, this is Taylor's fight to lose, and the current odds seemingly agree with this testament. The key to wagering on this matchup is not betting money lines, but gambling on if there is going to be a finish, and with the possibility of Catterall utilizing his talents in the front end of the match to Taylor cerebrally vivisecting Catterall later on, I see this as a great opportunity to take the under and cover both bases, all while getting a line that is playable to the layman.
