Chorley light-welterweight Jack Catterall is thrilled to be part of a bumper bill in Manchester this autumn.

The 22-year-old received confirmation he would be boxing on the show several weeks ago.

Three world title fights have been confirmed on the card, which is on Saturday, October 10, at the Manchester Arena. Catterall will be making the second defence of his WBO 
Inter-Continental title.

The long-awaited clash between WBO middleweight title holder Andy Lee and Billy-Joe Saunders will top the bill alongside the WBO lightweight title fight between Terry Flanagan and Diego Magdaleno.

The vacant WBO light-middleweight title fight will also be contested by Liverpool’s Liam Smith and France’s Michel Soro.

“It’s great to be part of a big bill – it’s great exposure for me and I can’t wait to get back in the ring,” Catterall said.

“I’ve been in camp for four weeks now and I’ve just started sparring.

“I’m feeling good, with this fight my No.9 ranking will improve.”

An opponent is yet to be confirmed for Catterall’s next fight but his team are deep in discussions with a well-ranked European opponent. Despite not yet knowing his opponent, Catterall is confident he can adapt to any situation.

He added: “I’ve got to prepare the best I can for this fight.

“Anything can happen but I’ve got to concentrate on 
myself.”
