Warrington Eager To Give 'Two Fingers' To Haters After Big Win

Josh Warrington confesses he found it ‘satisfying’ when he proved wrong the doubters who wrote off his chances of becoming world champion.
 
He also added that it will be the same thing again when he defeats Carl Frampton in their BT Sport Box Office clash on December 22nd in Manchester.
 
After being asked if being the underdog gave him an extra edge in his preparation’s for Frampton, Warrington responded with no hesitation;

“Yes, it’s making me train harder and I want to turn around and stick two fingers up, it was sweetly satisfying after the last fight.”
 
In his previous fight, domestic rival Lee Selby was a clear favourite heading into the contest against Josh Warrington.
 
But the Leeds underdog re-wrote the script and stunned the boxing world by out-boxing Selby to a shock victory, claiming the IBF world featherweight title in the process.
 
“I don’t want to be too cocky… but when all them haters, especially on social media, were writing me off saying ‘Warrington’s going to get schooled! He’s going to get his head boxed off! He’s going to get knocked out unconscious on the floor!
 
“...to be able to after the fight, scroll through my social media when I got home, my world title sat there, cup of tea… you were saying?!” joked the IBF world champion.
 
He continued: “I think it is nice to turn around, especially when you’re doubted, it wasn’t that a few doubted me, the whole country doubted me who took interest in that fight. Nobody was giving me a round never mind the fight, and the way I went about it, it was a bit sweeter.
 
“… and I feel like it will be the same with this one [against Frampton].”

[QUOTE=apollocreed;19238778]When does Frampton come across as arrogant? Never that I've seen. He's confident in his ability, but he should be, he's a 2 weight champ and probably the best active p4p British fighter.[/QUOTE] A few time a bit of arrogance…

Other than a high work rate, I'm not sure what it is that Warrington actually does that is elite level? He's gotta be one of the least impressive World Champs out there. Can only see Frampton being way too good…

[QUOTE=Adamsc151;19237790]I would have more sympathy for Warrington.... if didn't come across as a horrible little **** every time he speaks or posts something on social media. Frampton can come across a bit arrogant as well, but I hope he sparks…

he's going to finger his haters?

[MENTION][/MENTION][QUOTE=theface07;19237870]Totally disagree with that. There were no intentional headbutts. Selby was holding whenever Warrington mounted an attack and thus increased the chance of headbutts. Warrington just wanted it more, was busier and landed the cleaner punches all night. Selby thought…
