Josh Warrington

When Leeds boxer Josh Warrington turned professional in 2009 he had one ambition – to become British champion. After achieving that goal in just five years he set himself a new target – headlining the first direct arena. That followed a year later and after a stellar 2017 the Leeds United fan is now just one step away from his ultimate ambition: to be crowned featherweight champion of the world at Elland Road. Wins against former IBF champion Kiko Martinez and the previously unbeaten Dennis Ceylan in 2017 mean that Warrington is now eyeing up a mouth-watering world title showdown with Welshman Lee Selby. If the fight does take place at the home of his beloved Leeds it promises to be one of the biggest sporting nights ever seen in the city.
