Jack Catterall Confident That He Would Beat Ohara Davies

British Champion Jack Catterall is confident he would beat Ohara Davies, should they meet this year.

Catterall analysed his new stablemate on the latest BoxNation Podcast and replied to Davies' recent comment about being the most well-known Super-Lightweight in the country.

"Yeah, can't argue with him, he's got a big name - not for all the right reasons - so I can't dispute that," said the 24-year-old. "I don't believe he's the best fighter in the division, I believe I'm the best 140lb fighter in the UK. I'll be interested to see what fights unfold this year. That's a fight I'd definitely look forward to getting stuck into if it was made."


Frank Warren has revealed his interest in making domestic dust-ups featuring the likes of Catterall, Davies, Terry Flanagan and Josh Leather. A few weeks ago, Catterall even 'welcomed' Davies into the stable with a special tweet saying, "Would love to smack the dog sh*t out of you!"

"Yeah that was just a bit of a welcoming to the stable. I think he took it alright," he laughed.

Davies is a former English Champion, and his record stands at 16-1 (13 KOs). He is set to make his BoxNation debut on April 14th, but Catterall has already had a few scouting missions.

"To be honest, I've watched his fights and he can fight. I've seen little flaws here and there that I know I can capitalise on. Obviously he got found out in his fight against Josh Taylor, so there's stuff you can take away from that fight. But overall, an alright fighter, I don't believe he's great," he argued.

After taking the Lord Lonsdale belt from Tyrone Nurse in October, 'El Gato' is in confident mood and believes he has the tools to defeat Davies.

"He's got these long arms, he likes to get range on his shots but I know that I can suffocate him. I know that I've got the skills to beat him," predicted the Chorley talent. "Whether it [would] be getting inside, fighting him close, or just nicking the timing and the distance with the feet."

Also on episode 12 of the BoxNation Podcast, Ricky Hatton gives his take on the return of Tyson Fury and training Nathan Gorman, plus Zolani Tete talks about returning to Belfast.

Why is this not about Errol Spence? If it was about Floyd Mayweather, I could see, but what? Jack Coldcuts? Is this a joke? It is called boxingscene. Screw the talk about deli meats and cheeses and talk Spence.
