Josh Warrington (born 14 November 1990) is a British professional boxer who has held the IBF featherweight title since May 2018. He has previously held the WBC International, European, Commonwealth, British, and English featherweight titles.
Warrington is ranked as the second best featherweight in the UK and the sixth best featherweight in the world by BoxRec as of May 2018.
Josh graduated from the University of Leeds in 2013.
On 23 January, it was confirmed that Warrington would fight IBF world champion Lee Selby (26-1) in his first world title fight on 19 May. On January 30th, Elland Road Stadium, the home of Leeds United was confirmed as the venue for the fight.
Warrington commented on the fight: "By winning this fight, not only do I get my hands on a world title, but it’s a chance to show everyone that I’m the best featherweight in the UK and propel myself onto the world level." Warrington was accompanied to the ring by ex Leeds United player Lucas Radebe whilst band Kaiser Chiefs performed live.
Josh Warrington secured a split-decision victory over Selby by thoroughly outworking him for the majority of the twelve rounds to claim the title, and hand Selby his second career loss.
