Josh Leather: I’ll light up the British light-welterweight scene

Guisborough’s former ABA champion Josh Leather believes he could be the man to ignite Britain’s stagnant light-welterweight division.

The 23 year old former England amateur captain has earned rave reviews whilst racking up six successive wins since joining the profession in September 2013.

After acclimatising to the profession with a quartet of victories over serial losers, the 5ft 10in whirlwind forced a few eyebrows to arch with back-to-back wins over regarded prospects Tommy Carus and Fergus Taylor at the tail end of last year. Both were clearly beaten on points over six rounds.
