In Leeds, unbeaten light welterweight talent, Chorley's Jack Catterall takes on champion, but underdog, Huddersfield's Tyrone Nurse.

Nurse starts with pressure, tries to back Catterall up, though finding little accuracy, he seems to have the ability to overpower Catterall, and make it hard for him to work.

It isn't long before Catterall begins you find the target with many crisp, clean punches, and Nurse struggles to match his accuracy, and work rate.

Catterall looks to have taken over after 5 rounds, as he beats up, out boxes Tyrone Nurse, landing from angles, landing in volume, Nurse, still trying, teak tough, having success, but not a lot of it.

It is around round 8, when a very busy Jack Catterall looks to be slowing down, and Tyrone Nurse, much taller, much naturally bigger, comes forward, tries to rally back, tries not to let Catterall take any risks, and keep the tempo high. The fight, the pace of it, does seem to be suiting the champion a bit more in the mid-late rounds more than earlier in the fight.

Catterall has enough in the tank to sustain his impressive boxing, only at a slower pace, lower tempo, and as Nurse comes forward, tries his best, physically, and tactically, for the majority of the last few rounds, he looks like he might be just too predictable, too open for punches from a tired but still fairly active, motivated Jack Catterall, and the technical superiority of the challenger seems to be enough not to let the champion take many late rounds.

Jack Catterall is awarded a unanimous decision victory, winning the title, having boxed very well indeed, with all 3 judges having scored an even round, 1 judge scores the fight fairly, having Catterall winning by 7 points, but the other 2, seem to have scored the fight in a way which favours sheer attempts of aggression, toughness, unused physical strength, rather than clean punches, hard punches, a lot of punches, ability to hurt an opponent, or ability to dictate the fight, as they score Catterall a winner by 3 points, and 1 point, stupidly, but Nurse, having given it his best efforts, tried as hard as he could have to defend his title, and Catterall, having boxed a tough opponent who came to fight, and beaten him well, to win the belt, and impress with another solid performance, hopefully on his way to bigger and better opportunities in boxing.

I was over happy to search out this computer. i want to thanks for your moment owing to this unbelievable read!! I positively savored as of it and that i have you ever book-marked to examine new things in your computer. I even have some sensible work expertise with best essay writing service and my words square measure clearly supported what I felt through such processes within the past.

Prediction,

This is an awesome match up, a couple of the best light welterweights in Britain. The 140 lbs division looks great in the UK, these two, Josh Leather, Josh Taylor, Ohara Davies, 5 great examples there, Taylor, maybe, the strongest, Davies, maybe the weakest, if so, then this says a massive amount about the competitiveness of the division, with Ohara Davies being such a monstrous finisher in the ring, and such a dangerous fighter.

I think Jack Catterall will win the fight, I think he is maybe just a level above Tyrone Nurse, even though Nurse is a top 5 British light welterweight in my opinion.

I can't see this being easy for Catterall, he's undefeated, yes, Nurse is not, but Nurse is on an impressive streak, he has a few blemishes, but his first, against Adil Anwar, a long time ago, a disputed decision against Dave Ryan, who is no easy opponent for anyone who isn't a top, top fighter, that was 3 years ago, and Nurse, drawing with Chris Jenkins, but then defeating him in their rematch, with a decisive, semi close unanimous decision victory. Nurse has defeated Tommy Coyle, Willie Limond, and battled to a closely fought draw against Joe Hughes, a man who lost very wide to, but pushed and challenged the favourite in Nurse's upcoming fight. It is understandable that Catterall is the favourite, I'm sure Nurse isn't discouraged by being the underdog, the Joe Hughes fight comparison as well as the 0-0/2-2 comparison suggests Catterall will have too much for him, but Nurse is a tough, determined fighter who has impressive victories since his last defeat, and he shouldn't be written off, he's not stepping stone either, not at all, he's only 27, he's not an old fighter who should be looked back on as a good fighter once upon a time, and he was at his best before his losses, the opposite, I think he has improved a lot since his last defeat, but if he is score the upset here, he will have to fight tooth and nail, and box better than he ever has before, because it would be no easy task, that is for sure.

I think Jack Catterall will be a world champion in 5 years time, he has a lot of talent, that much is clear, there was a time in his career, when nobody could challenge him, he knocked out Nathan Brough, flattened him in 2 rounds, and then dropped, dominated, stopped then fellow undefeated contender Tom Stalker, in a fight which some expected him to lose, at this point, many people took notice of him as a fighter. Since the Stalker victory, which was a few years ago now I believe, Catterall has won 8 fights in a row, he's looked great in fights, he's not really struggled with any opponents, he did look lacklustre against at least one of his opponents between the Stalker win and now, but in most of his fights, he's looked great, he looked phenomenal when he fought on the undercard of Andy Lee vs Billy Joe Saunders, stopping a tough opponent in 3 rounds, and in his last fight, beating tough guy Martin Gethin into retirement. I remember a couple of years ago, there were talks of Catterall fighting Mauricio Herrera, and BoxNation pundits thought it was too soon to be thinking about those type of fights, and they were probably right, but Catterall, before too long, I think will be involved in big fights. Tyrone Nurse will be a good test for Jack Catterall, he's very, very tall for a 140 lbs fighter, 5'11, standing 4 inches over Catterall, he's the height of an average 168 lb fighter I would say, I would imagine he has the reach advantage as well on Catterall, I think he will probably outweigh Catterall on fight night by a quite a bit, and he's a strong, durable fighter as well.

I think Nurse will aim to jump all over Catterall, start fast, bully the smaller man, overwhelm, overpower him, try to keep him put, and I think will start quite well, but I think Catterall might still nick the first couple of rounds with his clean counters, angles, variety, ability to punch off the ropes, I don't think Nurse is a very defensively strong fighter, and this will be something Catterall will really make to work in his favour. I think Nurse will push the fight, try his best, but I think as the rounds go by, 3, 4, 5, Catterall will give him less and less ground, make it an outside fight, make speed, combination punching matter, make it his kind of fight, whilst an increasingly frustrated Nurse tries and tries to make it more of a brawl, a tough, rough inside fight, but I think the distance from Catterall, his skills, his variety, will build him a good lead.

I think the relentless pressure of Nurse will be testing, taxing for Catterall, and his feet will slow down maybe just slightly in rounds 7 and 8, and Tyrone Nurse, battered, bloodied, but never fazed by anything Catterall hits him with, will plough forward, get closer, throw as much leather as he can, no whenever Catterall is on the ropes even for just 2-3 seconds, Nurse will punish him. I think Nurse will have more success in rounds 7-10, I think Catterall will show great fitness, great stamina, and need only a small decrease in exertion in the rounds, but his punch output will dip only slightly smaller well, and Nurse, taking more and more risks, with his natural size helping him, I think the fight will be close in these rounds, with Catterall still landing with the cleaner work, still busy, still moving not looking like he will run out of gas. I think by the time we're watching round 11, Nurse will have seemed to have punched himself out, with Catterall maybe looking just slightly fresher after a round off or less so, and I think Catterall will begin to catch a brave, standing, but battered, easy target in Nurse, with shot after shot, even admiring his work as he puts the punches together and attacks Nurse from head to body. I think Nurse will come out fighting in round 12, seeming to have found a second wind, not at all short of motivation, fighting as if his career depends on the win, and a still sharp, mobile Catterall will more than happy to make him pay for his offensive attempts, I think Nurse will charge forward and throw until he has no punches left in him, and Catterall will more than match his pace, but get caught with some solid hooks as a desperate, brave Nurse fights his heart out. After what I think will be a round of the year candidate, Jack Catterall will look like a man who knows he's done enough to win, Nurse will seem gutted, but get applause from a happy, entertained crowd.

I think Jack Catterall will win a very wide unanimous decision, (117-111, 120-108, 118-110).

I don't think Richie Woodhall is a good commentator, his scoring was poor, and Bob Williams, John Keane, well they were off the mark, that was not a close fight, Catterall dominated, from round 2, to round 7, it was all him, and then he took over again in the last couple, 118-111, isn't too wide, by no means, I think 116-112 would be generous to Nurse. It is one thing to simply move forward against a guy who is making you walk onto clean counters, and try to be aggressive, but you have to hurt your opponent, find a way to drain the punch output out of them, or maybe just land with the heavier and the punches with more authority, you have to put shots together, Nurse did a lot of pushing, scuffing about, leaning, withstanding, tough guy stuff, in every round, but in some 'close' rounds, that's all he was doing. Nurse did very well in rounds 8-10, really rallied, gave Catterall a really physically hard time, he probably would have been unfortunate to have lots a shutout, it was a good fight, he was in the fight, but to sum it up, he lost, and it wasn't close.
