Jack Catterall (with a record of 27-1, including 13 KOs) is eager to bounce back and challenge the 140lbs title again. He wishes to overturn the shadows of his controversial loss to the previously undisputed Super-Lightweight World Champion, Josh Taylor, from February 2022.

On the flip side, Jorge Linares, a champion in the Featherweight, Super-Featherweight, and Lightweight divisions (holding a record of 47-8 with 29 KOs), is keen on strengthening his position in the active 140lbs division. He aims to maintain his undefeated streak in the UK and disrupt Catterall’s hopes for a World Title opportunity in his subsequent fight.
