Josh Taylor will return in 2024 with 3 fights in the works.

Former undisputed world champion, Scottish boxer Josh Taylor, had revealed in an interview with The Herald his intention to return in 2024. His plans include three fights, a change in weight class, and a rematch.

According to Taylor, he plans to:

- Debut in the welterweight division in February 2024. Despite declaring he wouldn't change weight classes after a mid-2023 setback, Taylor's plans have now changed.

- Contend for the welterweight champion title in mid-2024. Jaron Ennis currently holds the IBF title, while Terence Crawford is the champion according to WBA, WBC, and WBO.

- Organize a rematch with British boxer Jack Catterall at the end of 2024.

The 32-year-old Taylor suffered his first career loss to Teofimo Lopez in the summer of 2023, leading the Scot to take a hiatus. Taylor faced Jack Catterall in winter 2022, winning but in an exceptionally challenging bout.
