Jack Catterall vs Regis Prograis Fight Set For August 24th in Manchester

Press Release:


Jack Catterall and Regis Prograis will create history when they meet in a blockbuster Super-Lightweight clash at the top of the first ever boxing show to take place at Co-op Live in Manchester on Saturday August 24, shown live worldwide on DAZN.


Chorley’s Catterall (29-1, 13 KOs) ended a two-year wait for revenge by beating bitter rival Josh Taylor in Leeds last month, outpointing the Scotsman over 12 electric rounds in front of over 11,000 fans in one of the best British bouts of the year so far.


‘El Gato’ is keen to keep the momentum building after his career-best win in Yorkshire and the 30-year-old Jamie Moore-trained talent knows he within touching distance of another shot at world honours.


New Orleans’ Prograis (29-2, 24 KOs) surrendered his WBC Super-Lightweight World Title to Devin Haney is a huge PPV showdown at Chase Center in San Francisco last December, suffering only the second loss of his career in front of a sold-out crowd of 17,000 fans. 


‘Rougarou’, a two-time World Champion at 140lbs, is looking to rebuild himself as a contender after his one-sided points defeat to ‘The Dream’, and the 35-year-old is confident that a win over Catterall will push him on towards becoming a three-time World Champion.
