Josh Warrington will defend his WBC International Featherweight title against Jorge Sanchez at The O2 in London on December 12, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Leeds favourite Warrington makes his second defence of the title he won in April against Dennis Tubeiron, having shutout Australian Joel Brunker for the strap in Yorkshire in September.

Warrington will face a stiff test to end his year on a high as the unbeaten Panamanian, known as ‘El Bufalo’ heads to London to take the title away from the champion and record a tenth win inside the distance in his 16th pro outing.

A showdown with Welsh IBF king Lee Selby is the target for Warrington in 2016, and the 25 year old says the pressure is on to end the year in impressive fashion.

“Sanchez will be my fourth fight of the year and I want to end 2015 with a big statement in London,” said Warrington. “The fights with Tubeiron and Brunker in Leeds were tough ones and I am sure this will be a really hard fight – but it’s on a massive Box Office card that will be getting huge attention, so I need to put in a top performance.

“Selby beat Brunker at The O2 and then won his World title there against Evgeny Gradovich, so it’s a good venue for me to show that I am coming for his title in 2016.”

Warrington’s clash with Sanchez is part of a stacked bill at The O2 where bitter Heavyweight rivals Anthony Joshua MBE and Dillian Whyte clash for the British and Commonwealth Heavyweight titles.

Chris Eubank Jr and Spike O’Sullivan meet in a final eliminator for the WBA World Middleweight title, Kevin Mitchell meets Ismael Barroso for the WBA Interim Lightweight title with the winner facing newly crowned WBA supremo Anthony Crolla, Liverpool Cruiserweight favourite Tony Bellew faces Mateusz Masternak, while Luke Campbell MBE also features.
