Matchroom Boxing to host another special night of sport, with Josh Warrington to fight for the European title
Leeds lad Josh Warrington will tackle Davide Dieli for the vacant European Featherweight title at the first direct arena in Leeds on 04 October. This bout follows Josh’s hometown victory back at the arena in May this year, where he fought Martin Lindsay to win the Commonwealth Featherweight title.
Unbeaten Leeds star Warrington can add the belt to his British and Commonwealth strap, after Lee Selby vacated the belt when he secured an eliminator for the IBF World title, with Italian Dieli having designs on the belt himself having held the EU title in 2012.
Warrington’s clash with the 35 year old tops a bill with former two-weight World champion Ricky Burns back in action, Light Middleweight World title challenger Brian Rose and Liverpool’s Super Middleweight star Callum Smith.
