Catterall v Foot, Walsh v Lowe II ordered / Jazza British title shot / Skeete’s Spanish Euro chance
Jack Catterall has been ordered to defends his British super-lightweight title against Glen Foot, in the latest round of British Boxing Board of Control circulars.
Catterall is eyeing up a world title chance in the not-too-distant future but may well see Foot as a decent fight in the interim.
Ex- Prizefighter champion Foot, 30, recently defeated Jason Easton in what was considered a shock victory in Glasgow and previously missed out on the welterweight version when losing to Sam Egginton in 2015.
Meanwhile at featherweight, a rematch between Ryan Walsh and Isaac Lowe has been put out to purse bids by the Board. The pair traded blows on the George Groves v Chris Eubank Jr. undercard in a contest which ended in a draw.
Isaac told WBN last week in an interview he had hoped they could get it on again.
“It’s a learning lesson and there’s no doubt in my mind; next time there’s gonna be one clear winner,” Lowe exclusively told World Boxing News.
“I want the rematch, I think Ryan wants the rematch because it makes sense, obviously we didn’t like each other before the fight.
“I wouldn’t say we’re best buddies, but after that night I have got a lot of respect for Ryan, I know he’s a tough opponent and I know he’s good.”
“I’m sure he wants to show everybody he can beat me and I want to show everybody what I am,” he added.
Both bouts have been set a deadline of April 11 for offers from promoters.
At super-bantamweight, Jazza Dickens will challenge Thomas Patrick Ward for his Lonsdale Belt after Frank Warren reached an agreement to stage the encounter.
The venue and date will be confirmed soon.
Finally, British welterweight title holder Bradley Skeete will be travelling to Spain on April 28 to fight Kerman Lejarraga for the vacant European strap.
Skeete v Lejarraga will be promoted by MGZ and take place in Bilbao.
