Warrington faces Tubieron in World title eliminator

Josh Warrington will face Dennis Tubieron in an official eliminator for the WBC World Featherweight title at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on April 11, live on Sky Sports.

Warrington is aiming to continue his meteoric rise over the last year inside his intimidating fortress and pick up the vacant WBC International crown in the process, but faces a tough task in the shape of ‘The Scorpion’ from the Philippines, who boxed for that title in December with his clash against Carlo Magali ending in a controversial draw.

The Leeds star has seen off Samir Mouniemne, Rendall Munroe, Martin Lindsay and Davide Dieli in a dazzling run of displays, and with a raucous hometown army behind him, the 24 year old will be aiming to crash into the rankings in style on April 11, with a trip to Berlin on the undercard of Paul Smith’s World title rematch against Arthur Abraham to come first for Warrington on February 21.
