Eddie Hearn Sees a Bright Future For Josh Warrington

Josh Warrington will defend his Commonwealth featherweight title at First Direct Arena in Leeds on Wednesday May 21, live on Sky Sports.

The 23-year-old from Leeds retained his title in style in Manchester on Saturday night, forcing the retirement of former world title challenger Rendall Munroe after eight rounds of his first defence of the belt he won last year.

Stephen Smith will face Fernando David Saucedo for the Argentinian's WBC Silver featherweight title in a crunch eliminator bout on the same bill, plus there will be a Yorkshire derby as Doncaster's Gavin McDonnell defends his British super-bantamweight title against Barnsley's Josh Wale.

Hull star Tommy Coyle also returns to action on a night that promoter Eddie Hearn says will be the first of many big events in the city, with rising star Warrington at the heart of it.

"We've been lucky enough to host the Premier League Darts at the First Direct Arena recently with 11,000 fans who created an electric atmosphere," said Hearn.

"I've been looking at bringing boxing to Leeds since the Arena opened and now with Josh Warrington on the title scene, it's perfect timing.

"Josh can be a major flag bearer for boxing in Leeds and fans can expect a first class night of action.

"Stephen Smith is presented with a huge opportunity taking WBC Silver champion Fernando David Saucedo in a World title eliminator. We are looking forward to a new era in Leeds."
