The latest boxing news from Hackney

Hackney super lightweight Ohara Davies will top the bill at the Leicester Arena on October 6 when he faces Jack Catterall.

The fight takes place on a Frank Warren promotion and will be screened live on BT Sport.

Davies has only been beaten once in 19 bouts in the pro ranks, while Catterall is unbeaten in his 22 fights in the paid game to date.

The meeting between the rivals will be for Catterall’s WBO inter-continental title, which he defended against Tyrone McKenna in Belfast in June.

Davies will hope, though, to take that belt from Catterall’s grasp and inflict a first defeat of the Chorley fighter’s career in the paid ranks

Also on the bill at the Leicester Arena is Hackney-born Leon Woodstock, who is unbeaten in 11 fights as a pro.

The super-featherweight will defend his WBO European strap against the unbeaten Archie Sharp in Leicester, the town which Woodstock now calls home.
