Paul Butler’s finest night was against Stuart Hall and he hopes Saturday’s rematch with the veteran will be another turning point in his career.The 28-year-old can secure a shot at the WBA world bantamweight title — held by Kazakhstan’s Zhanat Zhakiyanov, who is trained by Ricky Hatton — if he beats his fellow Briton at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.
Butler (24-1, 13 KOs), from Ellesmere Port in Merseyside, has taken a winding road since he won a split points decision over Hall in June 2014 — a win that earned Butler the IBF world bantamweight title after he had stepped up a division from super-flyweight, but he soon gave up the belt without making a defence to resume as a super-flyweight.
But Butler failed in his attempt to become a two-weight world champion when South Africa’s Zolani Tete stopped him in eight rounds for the IBF world super-flyweight title in March 2015, and he has since switched divisions once again.Butler hopes a disciplined display in front of his home supporters will set up a chance to become a two-time world bantamweight champion.
