What have they said?

Taylor explained: "It is calm and relaxed – but there is time for the needle to come! And it will come. The closer the fight gets, it will come.

"He's a good fighter, I've got a lot of respect for Jack. But he will come up short. He will taste his first defeat as a professional.

"He's a good fighter. He just isn't as good as I am.

"It is a step up in class for him because he hasn't boxed at the level that I have. He is a talented fighter but he hasn't got what it takes to beat me."

But Catterall has said: "I beat Josh by listening to instructions, doing the stuff that we've worked on since the very start of my career.

"Using everything I've learned over the years, and executing it."
