Josh & Boz discuss boxing from the past weekend .In a 12-round junior welterweight bout in Liverpool, England, Jack Catterall secured a dominant unanimous decision victory over Jorge Linares. The judges scored the contest 117-111, 116-112, and 116-112 in favor of Catterall. Although Catterall doesn't hold any titles, he currently holds the top spot in ESPN's 140-pound rankings, following a controversial loss to Josh Taylor for the undisputed championship. Notably, Catterall delivered a significant blow to Linares in Round 5, causing him to grab the ropes, but Linares managed to avoid a stoppage despite being TKO'd in his two previous fights. Catterall's record now stands at 28-1, with 13 KOs.   Giovani Santillan emerged as the underdog victor in a night at the Inglewood Forum, securing the NABO belt in the welterweight division and paving the way to face elite opponents in 2024. Santillan's power hooks overwhelmed Alexis Rocha, who hit the canvas three times during the bout. Despite Rocha's resilience, Santillan's relentless performance earned him the win, bringing his record to an impressive 32-0 with 17 knockouts and marking his ascent in the welterweight rankings. Santillan credited his hard work and determination for the victory and expressed his eagerness to take on even tougher challenges in the future.
