Josh Warrington puts his IBF featherweight title on the line against Kid Galahad in what could be a thrilling all-British encounter tonight.

Warrington has defied expectation en route to becoming a world champion. Few predicted him to snatch the title away from Lee Selby last May.

Even fewer expected him to successfully defend it against Carl Frampton in December.

But after that phenomenal 2018, the Leeds fighter will relinquish that underdog status when he takes on mandatory challenger Galahad – who admits Saturday will be a career-defining night for him.

Like Warrington, he comes into the fight with an unblemished record with the two Yorkshire men boasting near-identical professional numbers – although Galahad boasts more than double the number of KO wins.

Warrington’s stunning rise has him tipped as the favourite – but Galahad will be out to put on a show-stopping performance akin to the one his opponent provided at Elland Road last year to win his first world title.

Warrington vs Galahad takes place on Saturday 15 July at the First Direct Arena in the champion's hometown of Leeds.
