JOSH WARRINGTON admitted his frustration after squeaking out an unsatisfactory split decision win over Kid Galahad to retain his IBF featherweight title in Leeds.

Warrington admitted: “I think there was a lot of expectation after my last two performances, but they’re not all going to be fights of the year.
