Matchroom inks IBF champ Warrington

Undefeated IBF featherweight world champion Josh Warrington (30-0, 7 KOs) has signed a multi-fight promotional deal with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing, with his future fights to be shown live on Sky Sports and DAZN. Warrington was previously promoted by Frank Warren.

“It’s great to be back with Matchroom, Sky and now DAZN and I’m very excited about the future,” said Warrington. “I have enjoyed my time at BT but now I’m looking forward to going on to achieve my dreams of both fighting in the USA and unifying the division.”

  • Warren will be doubly sick that he’s joined Hearn. And you kind of feel for him as he was the one that delivered the big fights. Not too sorry mind

    • Some good fights happen under Warren, but paradoxically i think he makes them difficult to happen. Every time there is a big fight with his name on it, he is always vocal about saying he didn’t want the fight. He openly said he didn’t want Fury to fight Wilder first time (probably doesn’t want rematch). He didn’t want Dubois to fight Gorman (probably doesn’t even want the Joyce fight). Warren’s strategy (maybe from being in the game too long) is fight absolute nobodies in the hope that a mega fight comes along miraculously. and when I say nobodies I mean real mismatches. That is why Fury has fought who he has since Klitschko outside WIlder. It is also the reason Yarde had to jump way up in level to fight Kovalev. and seriously, what the fuck is Billy Joe Saunders career? Turned pro in 2009! Guys like Warrington probably sense this toxic negativity behind closed doors and want out. Warren doesn’t develop a fighter properly. He just plays it safe and hopes for a world title shot.
