Catterall opens up on trainer switch
The 24-year-old now is now schooled by Salford-based coach Jamie Moore.
Jack Catterall recently revealed he is now training under former British and European super welterweight champion Jamie Moore.
The Lancashire-born puncher is undefeated in 19 bouts with ten wins coming by way of knock out.
The announcement came as a surprise, but the 24-year-old insists his decision to split with previous coach Haroon Headley was amicable and the pair remain on good terms.
Speaking to BoxNation’s Podcast, Catterall said:
“It was a decision I didn’t take lightly.”
“Me and Haroon have had a good run. We had three fights together, and three good wins. But I just felt like it was a time in my career where, like all fighters, you need to put yourself first.
“I needed a fresh start, I’m hungry now to get stuck in to these big fights. I feel like this move now going forward, I can keep progressing from where I’ve left off.
“I won that British Title [against Tyrone Nurse] with Haroon, had an amazing night in Leeds last year, but on to bigger and better things.”
And Moore’s stable is thriving at the moment, with the Salford-based trainer working with Carl Frampton, Rocky Fielding, Martin Murray, Tommy Coyle and more.
Catterall, nicknamed, “El Gato” is confident that Moore’s busy gym is the right place for him:
“I enjoy that. I like to keep quiet, I like to mind my own business and get down to the hard work. Like you said, there’s a lot of characters in this gym now.”
“I’ve been in the gym for two weeks with Jamie. I feel like I’ve already made small improvements, picking up things off other fighters.
“Having Jamie in the gym as well, from his experience as a fighter and a trainer, it’s been really good. A happy fighter is a dangerous fighter. It’s well organised.
“I think there’s ten professional fighters now, but everyone’s split up. Everyone gets their individual time to get their work done,” he added.
