Video: Josh Warrington counting down days to world title eliminator

Have your say

Leeds boxer Josh Warrington is counting down the days until his WBC International Featherweight title and world title eliminator clash with Dennis Tubieron on April 11.

Speaking at a press conference today, Warrington said he can’t wait to top the We Are Leeds bill in six weeks time.

He said: “I’m 100 per cent up for it. I know I can’t look beyond this fight, but if I do get through this fight with a win, then I’m one step closer to fighting for the world title.”

Having just returned from Berlin after his five-round knockout win against Edwin Tellez, Warrington commented on his win in Germany and how great the fans supporting him were.

He said: “It’s great to get out there and get some more experience, get some rounds under my belt, and look forward to April 11 now.

“I’d like to say to everyone that went out to Berlin last week: ‘thank you very much’. I was happy to be over there in a different city, different country, but it felt like I was fighting at home, the noise there was incredible. If you’ve got that kind of support behind you, you really can push yourself to the limit.”
