Jack Catterall has a few fighters on his hit list, but up first for the WBA Intercontinental Super Lightweight champion is Jorge Linares this Saturday. After a controversial loss to Josh Taylor in 2022, Catterall was hoping for an immediate rematch. When that fell through, Catterall moved on and returned to the win column with a decision against Darragh Foley this past May. Now, the ‘El Gato’ has his next challenge in Linares, who he lauded as a ‘legend’ in the sport.
“There is talk of a huge fight for me after this but it’ll count for nothing if I take my eye off the ball – which I can’t afford to do at this stage of my career,” said Catterall in a Matchroom Boxing press release. “It’s no secret my career has lacked momentum, so after boxing in May and now October I genuinely believe you’ll see the best version of me on October 21.”
A former three-division champion, Linares has struggled in his most recent stretch. ‘El Niño de Oro’ heads to the ring on a three-fight losing streak, which includes a loss to Devin Haney. Losses aside, though, Linares is ready to upset Catterall.
“October 21 I’m back in the UK,” said Linares. “I’m full of emotion and ready to give everybody a spectacular performance against a tremendous opponent Jack Catterall. I just want everyone to know that I’m ready to give Jack a great boxing lesson and to continue making history in the UK. The last Samurai is back, stronger than ever.”
