IBF featherweight world champion Josh Warrington wants to unify further world titles but first will be forced to make a mandatory defence against Kid Galahad.

Promoter Frank Warren has won the purse bids for that fight and it is expected to be screened on BT Sport.

It means a detour for Warrington, who after thrilling wins over Lee Selby and Carl Frampton had been looking to major clashes with WBO champion Oscar Valdez or WBA ruler Leo Santa Cruz.
