Catteral stops McKenna easy says Davies

Ohara Davies has backed Jack Catteral to register an easy knock out win over Tyrone McKenna this coming Saturday.
‘The Mighty Celt’ has finally got the potential break through fight he was craving and gets the chance to raise his profile significantly with victory over a known and fancied British name on the Michael Conlan undercard.
While 24 year old Catterall, who replaced the injured Phillip Sutcliffe Jr for the BT Sports broadcast fight, represents a massive chance for McKenna Davies was always top of his massive wish list.
However, the deliberately controversial star believes he is fated to face Catterall rather than McKenna next because he believes the Belfast fighter won’t prove any form of obstacle for the Jamie Moore trained southpaw.

Speaking after an impressive stoppage of Paul Kumanga in front a disappointingly small London crowd on Saturday night Davies dismissed the Belfast light welters hopes of a career changing win this Saturday.“I came into this fight quite nervous because I’ve not fought on TV for about seven months now,” Davies said.

“I’ve not had any time off and I’ve been working for this fight since the start of this year. I’m going to have a few days off now because I’m really pleased and I think I deserve it.

“I’m back from under the bus because Frank Warren gave me life, but Catterall’s next on my hitlist once he beats [Tyrone] McKenna quite easily like he should do.”
