Jack Catteral shows lack of interest to have a rematch against Ohara Davies

Jack Catteral was successful in securing a victory against Ohara Davies back in 2018, the match went till the last round and the judges declared Jack Catteral the winner by unanimous decision. Those days Catteral was a tough undefeated fighter until he stepped in to the ring with Josh Taylor.

Jack Catteral faced his first ever-loss against Josh Taylor, and it was a very close knock that resulted in a split-decision favoring Josh Taylor. Ohara Davies on the other hand, hasn’t lost a single match ever since he lost against Jack Catteral.

Even though Ohara Davies is on a 7 match winning streak, Catteral isn’t interested to give him a rematch. Ohara Davies last fought in march against Lewis Ritson and scored a fantastic knockout victory and he could most probably fight against Rolly Romero next.

Jack Catteral on fighting Ohara Davies again

Recently in an interview with Boxing News, Jack Catteral the super lightweight boxer spoke about the rematch with Ohara Davies and explained why he isn’t so interested to fight him again.

He reveals under which condition he would agree to fight him. “The only time I would fight Ohara Davies [is] if there was a world title on the line,” Catteral said as quoted by boxingnewsonline.net. “That fight really doesn’t interest me”.

He further said: “I probably beat him in first gear last time and it wasn’t the most interesting fight but if there was a world title on the line then it’s definitely something we could consider”.

Both fighters share one thing in common and that’s a loss against Josh Taylor, it would be interesting to see if Josh Taylor agrees on giving either one a rematch in the near future. Jack Catteral fought Darragh Foley a few days ago for the vacant WBA inter-continental super lightweight title, Catteral won the match via unanimous decision and can be expected to show up in the boxing ring once before 2023 ends.
