Josh Warrington vs. Patrick Hyland Headlines July 30 In Leeds

Josh Warrington will defend his WBC International Featherweight title against Patrick Hyland at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on July 30, live on Sky Sports.

Warrington makes the third defence of the strap he won in April 2015 and Hyland follows Joel Brunker and Hisashi Amagasa into the unbeaten Leeds man’s hometown fortress as the 25 year old looks to cement his place on the world scene before landing a world title shot.

Hyland has already tasted action at the elite level as he enters the clash in Yorkshire on the back of his April challenge against WBC champion Gary Russell Jr in Connecticut. ‘The Punisher’ will be desperate to prove he’s ready to take on the best once again and the 32 year old will bring an army of fans to Leeds as he looks to hand a first defeat to Warrington.

“Warrington vs Hyland is a fight that we’ve looked to make in the past and it’s a real crossroads clash,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “Patrick has only had two defeats both in World title challenges, while Josh is set for his first shot at a World crown later this year – victory for both men on July 30 is vital.

“Their battle tops a great bill with Huddersfield’s Tyrone Nurse and Hull’s Tommy Coyle meeting in a mouth-watering Yorkshire classic for Tyrone’s British Super-Lightweight title, Tommy’s local rival Luke Campbell MBE is back in title action, Gamal Yafai defends his Commonwealth Super-Bantamweight strap against Yorkshireman Josh Wale, and there’s a host of classy fighters in action including one of the world’s top prospects in Ryan Burnett and hard-hitting Brixton Heavyweight Dillian Whyte.”

I am disappointed. He ducked Selby to get married, OK. The wedding is over. Selby called him out, laughed at him, put his mouth all over him. He can't let it go just like that. He'll get boo'd in Leeds…

This is a shady bill even by Matchroom's less than stellar standards. Hyland is a step back for Warrington after Amagassa, particularly when you consider Josh had the Selby fight on tap. Hyland just got blown away by Russell and…
