Josh Warrington vs Kid Galahad fight LIVE: Stream details, boxing updates, point scoring and undercard action

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

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 Yorkshiremen boasting near-identical professional numbers – although Galahad boasts more than double the number of KO wins.
