British super-lightweight title holder Jack Catterall fights in Preston this coming weekend, under the tutelage of Jamie Moore.

Nathan Hardy is the opponent over six rounds, with Catterall's next outing rumoured to be on the huge Lee Selby v Josh Warrington card.

Speaking to Lancashire Post, Catterall said:

"I know I’ve got to put on a dominant display on Saturday night before I can start thinking about Elland Road. I have been confirmed to fight on May 19th and that will be the one after.

”Every fight for me is like a World Title fight because of what is to come after it. I’m fully focused and I’ve prepared hard for this fight. I’m looking to put on a good performance because I know down the line there are bigger fights to come."

The 24-year-old joined new trainer Moore in February, and now trains with Carl Frampton and Martin Murray in the VIP Gym.

And “El Gato” believes the former British and European Champion will help push him on to the next level.

"We’ve been working on a few little things. I don’t expect to be a totally different fighter but I’ve been practicing stuff that I know down the line will come into play,” said the 24-year-old.

”I’m looking forward to progressing under Jamie. I’ve had some good notice for this fight and have been training hard so I’ll be more that ready come Saturday night.”
