Josh Warrington (21-0, 4KOs), will take on Australian Joel Brunker (28-1, 16KOs), on September 5, with the bout televised live on Sky Sports at First District Arena in Leeds, England.
Warrington won his last fight against Dennis Tuberion by 12R UD, scores - judge: Massimo Barrovecchio 119-109, John Keane 119-109, Esa Lehtosaari 119-110. “I’m delighted to be defending my title at the First Direct Arena again – it’s my home and Joel Brunker is the perfect opponent for me,” said Warrington.
Joel Brunker defeated Rey Laspinas in Feb by 2R TKO. He was coming off a TKO lost to Lee Selby, which is his only lost.
Last time Josh fought in Leeds he drew a sellout crowd and was memorably walked into the ring with Leeds United legend Vinnie Jones.
