Josh Warrington Beats Down Dieli For Euro Crown

By Alexey Sukachev

Leeds' Josh Warrington (19-0, 3 KOs) is the new European featherweight champion following an impressive demolition of usually durable Italian fighter Davide Dieli (15-4, 5 KOs) in just four rounds.

Fighting in front of a roaring local crowd of ecstatic supporters, Warrington went right into Dieli. He was using his jab to control the distance against a bit shorter opponent and was also effectively working his body in the first round. Dieli tried to trade blows with supposedly light-hitting Warrington in the next couple of rounds but was clearly on a losing end on these encounters.

In the fourth, the local hero landed several hard shots and finally dropped the Italian with a right hand to the chin. Dieli got up but was beaten mercilessly by Warrington in the center of the ring as a towel from Dieli's cornermen signalized a loss.

Time of stoppage was 1:42. Warrington, also the BBBofC and Commonwealth champion, was 15-0 without knockouts while fighting on the regional level. He is amazing 4-0, 3 KOs, since upgrading his opposition to that of the continental level.

I think we might have found the new Ricky Hatton. That was like a Leeds United match. Pretty crazy stuff. As for his boxing, this lad has really come on. He looks the part to me, couldn't really see any…
