JOSH WARRINGTON intends to keep “proving people wrong” as he prepares to make the first defence of his IBF featherweight title.

Warrington feels the significance of becoming world champion at his beloved Elland Road by upsetting the odds against Lee Selby was slightly downplayed because of the Welshman’s struggles to make the 126lb limit.

The Yorkshireman is unfazed by being an underdog once more with the bookmakers ahead of his showdown against former two-weight world champion Carl Frampton at the Manchester Arena this weekend.
