Watch Video Highlights Of Mauricio Lara Vs Josh Warrington Featherweight Rematch Which took Place at the Emerald Headingley Stadium in Leeds, United Kingdom
Josh Warrington will look to get his fight back on track with a statement against his former conqueror Mauricio Lara when they both collide in the Main Event of a DAZN distributed fight card on Saturday night at the Emerald Headingley Stadium in Leeds.
Warrington plans a revenge against Lara, who dropped the formerly unbeaten Leeds fighter in the fourth round and brutally finished him off in the ninth round of their first meeting in February.
Warrington had plans to unify the Featherweight division but this was soiled when the IBF tried to make him defend the title against his mandatory then and present reigning IBF champion Kid Galahad. This didn’t go well with Warrington, who was hoping to secure a fight with WBA Featherweight Champion Xu Can.
This lead to Warrington vacating the welterweight title and choosing Lara as a stay busy opponent while waiting for Can to be free, so he can then fight can for the strap. Lara staged an upset, Warrington and his plans were left in limbo.
However, Warrington bis set to rewrite wrongs from his first meeting with Lara but things doesn’t look like it’s going to be easy for Warrington, who hopes to get his fight back on track after being handed his first professional loss and has been able to overcome depression.
