Leeds fighter Josh Warrington will take to the ring in his home county of Yorkshire as Sheffield hosts this week’s super featherweight world title fight.

The weigh-ins are complete and it's just over 24 hours until the eyes of the boxing world fall on Josh Warrington and Leigh Wood this Saturday night. The British duo will come to blows in Sheffield and do battle for the WBA super featherweight world title. Current champion Wood is favourite for the bout but underdog Warrington goes into the fight confident in his chances.

Leeds-born Warrington walked into a packed Cutlers' Hall in Sheffield for the weigh-in with a Leeds United scarf over his mouth as he whipped up a frenzy from supporters in attendance. The star said: "We live for these moments. I've [won world titles] arguably against better fighters. So first time for Leigh really, taking him to somewhere he's not been before."

Wood said: "This is a fight I've wanted for five years. Full circle, I am defending my world title against Josh in arguably the biggest British fight around. It's going to be a special night."

Saturday will be Warrington's first fight since losing his IBF featherweight title against Luis Alberto Lopez last December. Victory against Wood would make the Leeds Warrior a three-time world champion this weekend. Wood arrives in better form after beating Mauricio Lara in May to get back from being knocked out by the Mexican in February.
