Jack Catterall admits he won’t be leaving any stone unturned ahead of his fight with Jarkko Putkonen.

Twenty-two-year-old Catterall, who boasts an unblemished record of 12-0 (eight KOs), takes on his third undefeated opponent of his career on Saturday at the Manchester Arena on Frank Warren’s World War Three card.

Finland’s Putkonen, who boxes in the orthodox style, has a perfect record consisting of 12-0 (six KOs).

Light-welterweight Catterall will be making the second defence of his WBO Inter-Continental title, which he won back in March.

Previously, Catterall inflicted first defeats on Nathan Brough and Tom Stalker and the highly-rated southpaw is looking to do the same at the weekend.

“I’m feeling good and I’m ready to go,” he said.

“I’ve had my last tough week and now we’re winding down.

“I’ve had plenty of sparring in the gym with some good guys.

“It’s another undefeated opponent and it should be a good fight.

“I’ve focussed on myself during camp and I know I can adapt to whatever he brings.

“Come fight night, I’ll be ready.”

Tickets are still available for Jack’s 13th fight. They are priced at £40, £75, £125, £200, £300 and £500.
