Former world champion Josh Warrington is only some days away from his scheduled conflict with WBA featherweight king Leigh Wooden.
The 2 will collide in Sheffield on Saturday evening.
Warrington is seeking to bounce again after struggling a twelve spherical majority resolution loss in his final outing, by the hands of present IBF champion Luis Alberto Lopez again in December of final 12 months.
Wooden redeemed himself in Might, when he dominated Mauricio Lara over twelve rounds to recapture the WBA title in Nottingham.
There was little trash discuss between the 2, however Warrington expects fireworks.
“The respect doesn’t matter. Leigh has one thing I would like. I’m jealous, envious of the place he’s in. I had a combat with Carl Frampton a couple of years in the past and I might go so far as to say I used to be a fan of his till I boxed him. The build-up was nothing however amicable and we ended up having the combat of the 12 months. Within the first two rounds I completely banjo-ed him with one shot,” Warrington advised The Mirror.
“However after the combat we embraced and he got here into my changing-room, and now I’d go so far as to name him my buddy. In relation to it we’ll have little 8oz gloves on and we’ll be going there to bash one another up.”
The winner of the combat could possibly be in line for a showdown with IBF tremendous featherweight world champion Joe Cordina. Warrington is open to taking that combat – relying on the cash offered by promoter Eddie Hearn.
“The Cordina combat relies upon how a lot he’s going to pay me. I’ve been making featherweight for a very long time so it will be good to have the posh to step up. However greater than something I need to go to America. It has been hanging over me a very long time. Eddie mentioned it, Frank Warren mentioned it when he promoted me, Eddie mentioned it once more and it’s one of many causes I went again to him. Other than the heavyweights, who else will take a giant fanbase over there? I strongly imagine I’ll take some large numbers,” Warrington mentioned.
