Super-Lightweight prospect Jack Catterall believes he can dethrone British Champion Tyrone Nurse on October 21st, and is predicting "a beating".
In Frank Warren's most recent column, the promoter revealed that he's expecting a real 50/50 bout in Leeds. "This is one I am really looking forward to. You can make a strong case for both of them," he wrote.
However 'El Gato' tweeted his own view on the fight, arguing that it may be more one-sided than pundits and fans are anticipating.

"All Tyrone can expect is a beating!" wrote a confident Catterall, who is undefeated in 18 fights and is three years younger than Nurse.
Nurse has made three defences of the belt since winning it in November 2015, beating Willie Limond and Tommy Coyle but the Huddersfield boxer drew against Joe Hughes in April.
When speaking to BoxNation prior to facing Hughes, Nurse said that he would defeat Catterall if the fight were to be made. "I think I can beat anyone in the division. That's the mentality you've got to have in boxing."
Tyrone Nurse v Jack Catterall is chief support to Josh Warrington in Leeds on October 21st. Ticket details will be confirmed soon.
