BOXING: Woodhall admits he was lucky
Monday 07 September 1998
For Woodhall there was clearly little satisfaction in his statistical triumph over Catley in the first defence of the World Boxing Council super- middleweight championship at the Telford Ice Rink on Saturday. He admitted: "I thought he [Catley] nicked it."
In contrast, Catley could take much pride from his title effort - but not the title he thought he had earned. "I was told 500 times after I left the ring that I'd been robbed," he said. The fortunate champion boxed far below his best on the way to a 116-113, 115-113, 114-114 verdict. On this form he would stand little chance in a unification bout against the World Boxing Organisation champion Joe Calzaghe.
