Another Win For Josh Warrington

Josh Warrington retained his WBC International featherweight title last night following his TKO win over Patrick Hyland in the 9th round. 

Warrington dominated the fight from the outset and finished things off in style, much to the delight of his home town supporters in Leeds.

The 25 year old now has his sights firmly on the IBF champion, Lee Selby, who was at the Frampton vs. Santa Cruz fight last night.

Warrington is eligible for a world title fight and last nights performance showed that he is in great shape ahead of a potential fight with Selby.

The Leeds-born fighter is not known for his power or knock down ability but the WBC International champion certainly knows how to work his way to victory.

On the same card Dillian Whyte picked up a points victory over David Allen to win the WBC International heavyweight championship.

The man who lost to the current world champion, Anthony Joshua, put on a very dominant display but was unable to get rid of Allen early.

There were also wins for Luke Campbell and Tyrone Nurse as the Leeds crowd enjoyed a good night of boxing.
