Josh Taylor will defend his undisputed light welterweight crowns when he takes on British rival Jack Catterall in February.
Taylor put on a brilliant display in Las Vegas last May to beat Jose Ramirez and add the WBC and WBO welterweight titles to his collection.
The ‘Tartan Tornado’ are 18-0 with 13 knockouts to their name and will put all their gold on the line in Glasgow.
The fight was originally scheduled for December, but Taylor was forced to reschedule it due to a knee injury.
But he will now face “El Gato” in a historic fight, this is the first time that an undisputed champion of the modern era has defended his titles in Scotland.
Catterall, who is 26-0, will provide stiff competition on what is sure to be a memorable night of boxing.
