Thomas Stalker v Jack Catterall added to October 25 Echo Arena bill

Phil Jay 29/09/2014

An eye-catching fight between Thomas Stalker and Jack Catterall has been added to the undercard of a packed bill in Liverpool topped by the IBF super-flyweight contest between Zolani Tete and former world champion Paul Butler.

Some of the hottest British prospects around line-up alongside Scouse favourites Liam Smith, Kevin Satchell and Derry Mathews, who are all pencilled in to participate in title fights on the night.

Olympian Stalker’s battle with Catterall, both 9-0, will be for the vacant WBO European light-welterweight belt, which ended a potential British title eliminator with Chris Jenkins in the process.

Rounding off the title encounters is a massive domestic cruiserweight bout between big-hitting Ovill McKenzie and Matty Askin, which is scheduled to take place for both the British and Commonwealth straps at 200lbs.
