Light-welterweight Jack Catterall will now be boxing at the Velodrome in Manchester after his scheduled bout at Liverpool’s Olympia Arena was postponed.

Catterall will take to the ring against a yet to be named opponent on Saturday, July 11.

The 21-year-old will still be defending his WBO Intercontinental title.

Catterall will feature as a chief support act to Manchester’s Terry Flanagan.

Flanagan is battling it out against Jose Zepeda for the vacant WBO world lightweight title.

Speaking to the Guardian about his forthcoming fight, Catterall said: “There are a few opponents that have been mentioned but nothing is locked in yet.

“Hopefully we can get something sorted soon so we can start specifically training for a certain


“But training is going great.

“I’ve essentially had two back-to-back camps, as a couple of days after I defeat Cesar David Inalef in March, I was straight out to America.

“I sparred some great fighters and it will only suit me moving forward.

“After a great training camp abroad, I want to show what I can do back on home soil.

“But all I want to do is concentrate on this fight before thinking of anything else.

“Me and my team will be preparing properly to make sure I am 100% ready.”

Tickets are now on sale for Jack’s latest fight.

They are priced at £50, £100 and £150.
