Josh Warrington will look to make it 31 professional fights without defeat when he faces off with young Mexican featherweight Mauricio Lara on Saturday in London.
Warrington last fought in his home town of Leeds in October when he blasted France’s Sofiane Takoucht in just two rounds, and the Brit has also conquered domestic rivals Lee Selby and Carl Frampton.
However he has since vacated the IBF world title after struggling to put together fights with fellow champions to unify the division, and instead wants to pursue The Ring magazine’s lineal version of the belt.
“It’s disappointing we couldn’t have the IBF title on the line,” Warrington said recently, “but I can’t let those decisions stand in the way of me going down in British boxing history by facing the very best in the division.
“I’ve always dreamt about winning the Ring belt, for me it leaves no doubt who the king of the division is.
“Right now, my mind and focus is on Lara for February 13 and then I’m looking to pick up that beautiful red and blue belt.”
Here’s everything you need to know about the fight card.
