CAT­TER­ALL ON DAVIES

‘I haven’t been dis­re­spect­ful, it’s just him ram­bling on’

Boxing News - - PREVIEWS -

CAT­TER­ALL feels that Davies is in­fe­rior to him in every depart­ment. In­deed, he seemed more sym­pa­thetic than an­tag­o­nis­tic to­wards the Hack­ney-based boxer.

“I don’t pay too much at­ten­tion to him, I think he’s a very mixed-up per­son,” Cat­ter­all said. “I don’t think he is ac­tu­ally nasty, he just says stuff that is stupid and that he doesn’t know much about. I shrug any­thing he has said about me off. You can­not take it per­son­ally. That also goes for stuff a lot of other peo­ple have to say in box­ing. Box­ers, jour­nal­ists, train­ers or any­one out there can say some­thing about fight­ers. Once you let it get into your head, you’ve al­ready been beaten.

“I haven’t been dis­re­spect­ful. It is just him ram­bling on, re­ally, and that is why I don’t re­ally have an opin­ion about it... I wouldn’t have agreed to this fight if I didn’t be­lieve I could win it. I’ve al­ways be­lieved in my abil­ity and this is just the next step. It will be an­other loss on his record to add to the one that Josh Tay­lor gave him.”
