Josh Warrington

Can life get any better for Josh Warrington? The Leeds fighter successfully defended his IBF world featherweight title twice in 2019 but the bouts couldn’t have been more different. After twelve ferocious rounds at the first direct arena, Sheffield’s Kid Galahad was beaten on a split decision. His next fight took place at the same venue, with the same result, but Warrington’s second round knockout of Sofiane Takoucht was far more comfortable, despite the Frenchman never having been stopped before. A unification fight in the US now beckons. Who will it be against? Warrington doesn’t care. “Everyone has their passports at the ready. In 2020 we are coming for you all.”
