OHARA DAVIES has politely reminded the boxing world of his talent inside the ring as he continues to forego talking ‘trash’ ahead of a huge showdown with Jack Catterall.

Hackney’s ‘Two Tanks’ (18-1-KO14) challenges MTK Global stable-mate Catterall (22-0-KO12) in Leicester on October 6 looking to earn a WBO world title shot and is keen to defy his critics.

Davies said: “A lot of people seem to think I got here to the big stage because I talk trash. Yes, I know how to draw a crowd and I don’t care about getting booed.

“I’ve been quite controversial in the past and people seem to have forgotten I actually know how to fight. My record is good but everyone’s overlooking my successes since the one loss I took.

“Hopefully, the knockout of Paul Kamanga put back in everyone’s minds that I’m a boxer, not a talker. I’m a fighter, not a clown.

“Another misconception is that all I have is my big right hand. I catch people with that shot because I’ve tactically worked out how to do so. Look at my Derry Mathews fight or any of the others – I have other tools and weapons.

“Against Kamanga, I knew the right hand was the shot that would work but I’m a technical boxer. A lot of people might not see that or think it but I believe I am.”
