Josh-Warrington

Josh Warrington faces Davide Dieli for vacant belt on October 4

Josh Warrington will tackle Davide Dieli for the vacant European Featherweight title at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on October 4, live on Sky Sports.

Unbeaten Leeds star Warrington can add the belt to his British and Commonwealth strap after Lee Selby vacated the belt after he secured an eliminator for the IBF World title, with Italian Dieli having designs on the belt himself having held the EU title in 2012. Warrington’s clash with the 35 year old tops a bill with former two-weight World champion Ricky Burns back in action, Light Middleweight World title challenger Brian Rose and Liverpool’s Super Middleweight star Callum Smith.
