Josh Warrington should finally get his shot at a featherweight world title, if he beats Dennis Ceylan in Leeds this Saturday night.
The Yorkshireman has seemed on the brink of a crack at a world champ for a couple of years, and now it seems Ceylan is the final hurdle as this is an eliminator for Lee Selby’s IBF featherweight strap.
Warrington (25-0) is the clear favourite against Ceylan (18-0-2) but with only 13 knockouts in 43 fights between them, we cannot expect either man to finish this one within the distance.
The highlight of the undercard sees Tyrone Nurse (35-2-2) defend his British super lightweight title against unbeaten Jack Catterall (18-0).
When is Warrington vs Ceylan?
The fight is on Saturday, October 21 at the First Direct Arena in Leeds.
What TV channel is Warrington vs Ceylan on?
BT Sport 1 will be showing the card live with coverage starting at 8.30pm.
