JACK CATTERALL DEFEATS JOE HUGHES IN BOLTON
THE WBO INTERCONTINENTAL SUPER-LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
Chorley’s Jack Catterall made a successful defence of his WBO Intercontinental Super-Lightweight title when he outpointed Malmesbury’s Joe Hughes by unanimous decision with scores of 115-113, 117-112 and 117-113.
The champion dominated for large spells of a gripping encounter against a rough and ready Hughes. Ultimately, undefeated Catterall’s class showed as he took a deserved victory at the Macron Arena in Bolton.
Slick southpaw Catterall is improving in every fight, and Friday’s win secured him a crack at the British title, currently held by Huddersfield’s Tyrone Nurse.
