Warrington vows to bounce back

Former IBF featherweight champion Josh Warrington rcommented his lost against Mauricio Lara of Mexico at SSE Arena at Wembley.

Warrington believes that he would have had a much easier time if he simply focused on boxing instead of trading punches with a puncher.

“I went to hospital on Saturday night, just as a precaution, and passed all the tests. It was the first time I have been down and touched the canvas as a professional,” Warrington told The Sun.

“I’ve got a fracture on my jaw and some swelling around my lips but that is to be expected when you trade with a big-punching Mexican. Congratulations to Lara, he grabbed his opportunity. Looking back, I should have boxed more clever and made it easy for myself.”

Warrington’s corner, and the referee, are now taking a lot of heat for not stopping the fight in the fourth round.

“I was hurt and down in the fourth but I was always conscious and never felt like I couldn’t carry on, even though I was stumbling. I went down again in the ninth but I told the referee that I was getting up. But he told me I wasn’t and it was all over,” Warrington said.

“I will take some time now to recover. I was out of the ring for 15 months but I had been training all the way through, waiting for a date, and that was difficult. I still believe I can fulfil my dreams of more world titles. There are still big fights out there and hopefully I can look back at this as just a bump in the road.”
