Josh Taylor vs Jack Catterall 2 — AKA 'hate runs deep' — on Saturday is potentially the most eagerly awaited rematch in boxing right now. Two years on from the most controversial of decisions that meant the Tartan Tornado kept his undisputed super lightweight world crown, El Gato final gets his chance for revenge — and you can watch Taylor vs Catterall 2 live streams from anywhere with a VPN.

The atmosphere is building in at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, as a brooding fight week comes down to this. After a relatively sedate final press conference earlier in the week, both fighters had to be separated on stage at the weigh-in. Catterall weighed in marginally heavier than Taylor, but both comfortably beneath the 140lbs limit.

"That's all the talking done now. Fully focused on Saturday night, tune in it's going to be one hell of a fight," Catterall said. "It's been a long camp, I've done everything possible asked of me, everything's ready now to turn up tomorrow, re-write it."

"It's just another fight week, just another fight tomorrow night, all the training is done, can't wait for tomorrow now," Taylor said. "I will look good tomorrow and I'll look good winning."

The undercard is well underway, with Gary Cully securing a unanimous victory in an enthralling fight against Francesco Patera on the undercard. Next up is Paddy Donavan vs Lewis Ritson, followed by Cheavon Clarke vs Ellis Zorro for the vacant British cruiserweight title (and arguably the fight of the night). Then, it's the Taylor vs Catterall main event. Get yourself set up in front of a screen and tune in because there's plenty to enjoy.

There may be on gold on the line for this rematch, but such is the ill-feeling between both fighters that hardly matters. Taylor's victory two years ago via split decision was called "the biggest robbery in British boxing history" by one World Boxing News after the Tartan Tornado touched the canvas in the eighth round. The 33-year-old Scottish southpaw has since lost every belt – the WBC, WBA and IBF titles to inactivity through injury and considering a move up in weight, the WBO strap in the ring to Teofimo Lopez last June – and one wonders where the former Commonwealth Games gold medallist goes next in defeat.

Catterall has been desperate for another shot at Taylor since February 2022's controversy, which remains his only professional defeat. In October, the 30-year-old Lancastrian beat former three-weight world champion Jorge Linares – the best win of his career to date – to finally get his wish. "This isn't about belts, this is personal to me, and I can't wait to get my hands on him," he has said in the buildup. "I don't like him, I don't respect him. I'm going to end him."

Below, we'll show you how to watch Taylor vs Catterall 2 live streams from anywhere. Plus, we provide all the details of a packed card and the all-important tale of the tape.
