IBF featherweight champion Josh Warrington will no longer be promoted by Frank Warren and Queensberry Promotions, it was announced today.

The popular Leeds fighter joined Queensberry in 2017 and in May 2018 boxed Lee Selby for the IBF featherweight he currently holds. He won that fight, against the odds, and has since defended his belt three times, including notable wins against Carl Frampton and Kid Galahad.

Now 30-0, Warrington is on the hunt for unification fights at featherweight and has recently been touted as a possible opponent for WBO champion Shakur Stevenson.
