Jack Catterall Motivated To Win in Style, Secure Big Fight in 2021

Jack Catterall is well aware of how much is at stake when he goes up against Frenchman Abderrazak Houya on Saturday.

Undefeated Catterall (25-0, 13 KOs) faces Houya (14-2, 2 KOs) on the undercard of the heavyweight fight between Daniel Dubois and Joe Joyce, which will be broadcast live on BT Sport.

A victory for Catterall sees him move one step closer to a world title shot in 2021, and the Chorley man knows he can’t take his eyes off the ball this weekend.

Catterall said: “I’m glad to be back and have a fight date that I’ve been able to work towards. It’s been a frustrating year for everyone because of the pandemic, so I’m grateful to be here.

“It’s been a year since I’ve been in the ring, but I’ve been in the gym training hard and preparing, and now we’re here and ready for this fight on Saturday.

“My opponent has a good winning record, and I know that I can’t afford any slip-ups. I want to get the win on Saturday and then that sets up a big 2021 for me.”

Catterall is the WBO's mandatory challenger to unified champion Jose Ramirez.

A step-aside deal was reached where Ramirez will stake his WBC, WBO titles against IBF, WBA champion Josh Taylor in 2021 - with the winner facing Catterall.
