Jack Catterall talks about his upcoming fight on Saturday against Ohara Davies in Leicester. Jack was at MIHP The Manchester Institute of Health and Performance, putting in his final sessions work as he enters fight week.
Jack Catterall (22-0, 12KOs) and Ohara Davies (18-1, 14KOs) have been on collision course now for over a year and both will now get the chance to go at each other in the ring, with the winner progressing closer towards a world title fight.
Catterall was involved in a good fight last time out when he stepped into the ring in Belfast to take on their local fighter and a very game opponent, Tyrone Mckenna. Catterall knocked down McKenna twice before claiming victory by a majority decision and successfully defending his WBO InterContinental Super Lightweight for the eighth time.
Davies is on a good run of form since his defeat to Josh Taylor in 2012 and has since gone on to take three good wins. He stopped Liverpool prospect Tom Farrell and this year he first, outpointed Ahmed Ibrahim in May at Elland Road, Leeds, then knocked out Paul Kamanga at in June.
This is a serious domestic clash in the welterweight division and a fight not to be missed!
Also on the show is huge heavyweight prospect, Daniel Dubois who will step up and take on the big-talking boxing veteran, former world title challenger Kevin ‘Kingpin’ Johnson. Double Olympic Gold medalist Nicola Adams also features.
The local interest fighting on the show will come from Leicester’s own Lyon Woodstock, when he defends his WBO European super-featherweight title against Essex man Archie Sharp and British super-featherweight champion Sam Bowen of Ibstock, Leicestershire, will make his televised debut and maiden outing under the Frank Warren banner.
