Josh Warrington is intent on leading his army of Leeds fans across the Atlantic as he seeks to cash in on his reign as IBF featherweight champion.

The popular 27-year-old wrested the crown from Lee Selby in a thriller at Elland Road in May and now has his sights on the kind of exodus that could leave even Ricky Hatton in the shade.

Hatton famously took hordes of supporters with him Stateside for bouts against the likes of Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, and Warrington harbours similarly big ambitions.
