Peter McGrail takes on undefeated Colombian Fran Mendoza in what will be both super-bantamweights' first title fight, for the vacant WBA Continental belt.
Chorley's Catterall is itching to get back in the ring with the 'Tartan Tornado' Josh Taylor, his biggest ring rival, to avenge his only loss. 'El Gato' has also targeted the winner of the proposed fight between Devin Haney and Regis Prograis should he get past Venezuela's Linares next.
The 30-year-old southpaw ended a 15 month ring absence by widely outpointing Darragh Foley over 10-rounds on the undercard of Leigh Wood rematch with Mauricio Lara at Manchester Arena in May.
Legendary Linares is well-known in the UK following his 10th-round thrilling stoppage win over Kevin Mitchell at The O2 in London back in May 2015 and for his following two points wins over former Lightweight World Champion Anthony Crolla at Manchester Arena in 2016 and 2017.
The former Featherweight, Super-Featherweight and Lightweight World Champion, approaching his 20th anniversary as a pro, wants to throw his name back into the mix in the thriving 140lbs division by keeping his 100% winning record in the UK intact and ruining Catterall's chance of World Title action in his next fight.Full fight preview
Catterall: "It is an honour to share a ring with Jorge Linares. I’ve watched him come over to the UK on three occasions and win three times. He is a legend of the game and this is a must-win fight for the both of us for very different reasons. There is talk of a huge fight for me after this but it’ll count for nothing if I take my eye off the ball – which I can’t afford to do at this stage of my career. It’s no secret my career has lacked momentum, so after boxing in May and now October I genuinely believe you’ll see the best version of me on October 21."
Linares: "October 21 I'm back in the UK. I'm full of emotion and ready to give everybody a spectacular performance against a tremendous opponent Jack Catterall. I just want everyone to know that I'm ready to give Jack a great boxing lesson and to continue making history in the UK. The last Samurai is back, stronger than ever."
Tim Rickson BBN Editor: “Linares is unbeaten in the UK, a former triple champion who knows every trick in the book, but he is 38 now and only won two from his last six bouts. He hasn't looked like the same boxer for the past few years, so I think Catterall will win, probably on points.”
