Champion Warrington waiting for opponent

Champion Warrington waiting for opponent

ENGLISH Featherweight Champion Josh Warrington is awaiting confirmation of his next outing.

Batley's Central Boxing Club star is due to make a second defence of his national crown later this year, though the Press understands a pair of possible opponents have fallen by the wayside.

One-time challenger Chris Male, who 22-year-old Warrington last year defeated to claim the title, is believed to have opted himself out of contention.

Meanwhile, Manchester’s Ryan Doyle is understood to have failed to gain approval from the Board of Control.

An announcement on Warrington's future is due to be made in the coming weeks.
