Jack Catterall, Chorley, signs deal with BOXXER and hunts down world title

Written by Abbey Donoghue

Chorley’s Jack Catterall has signed a new multi-fight deal with BOXXER.

His contests will be on Sky Sports as he fights for a super-lightweight world title.

Catterall is looking for a rematch with Glasgow’s Josh Taylor after their controversial fight in February.

Catterall said: “I’m looking forward to getting the green light, getting back in training camp and going and challenging for those world titles.

“We all saw the controversy over the last fight, and there’s definitely something to put to bed with Josh.

“Who knows…hopefully that fight can be made in the future and I would look to do the job properly this time and put it to bed.

“I’ve got a great team around me, a great family, I’m in the gym, I enjoy being in the gym now and it’s about using it as motivation.

“It’s fire in the belly, and I think after that last fight I proved that I belong at the world level.

“I’ve had a lot of domestic fights over the years and I want to go on now and capture those world titles, so it’s made me extra motivated to get back in and prove to everybody that I do belong at the top.

“Every cloud has a silver lining. I didn’t get the result in Scotland in February, but the support I’ve had after the fight has been amazing and hopefully all the new fans can continue to support me going forward.

“Josh has said and done things after the fight I don’t think the public have taken well to, but it is what it is. It’s nothing to do with me.

“Ultimately, I would love to get that fight again and go and settle it.”
