Catterall Earns Second Victory Since Josh Taylor Defeat

Since his controversial defeat to Josh Taylorthe Chorley-born fighter has joined Matchroom Boxing and defeated Darragh Foley and now Linares. The Venezuelan fighter has fought some of the best opponents in his career, but Catterall was dominant throughout. He boxed diligently from the start, getting behind a stiff jab while showcasing his impressive movement. Through the early rounds, Catterall remained in control behind the jab while landing with his left hand at will and slipping Linares counter-punching effectively.
