IBF world featherweight champion Josh Warrington (29-0) will be fighting again this upcoming October, his promoter Frank Warren announced.
The 28-year-old Brit defeated Kid Galahad in his previous fight, defending his IBF belt for a second straight time. The opponent and the venue of Warrington’s next fight are yet to be confirmed. Galahad was a mandatory fight for “The Leeds Warrior” which means he has the freedom now of maybe trying to unify.
