osh Warrington is fighting for his career when he meets Kiko Martinez in front of his adoring hometown fans in Leeds on Saturday night.
The British featherweight suffered a shock defeat and then a draw against Mauricio Lara in his last two fights and is bidding to become a world champion once again.
Warrington and Martinez meet for the second time at First Direct Arena, five years after their first battle at the same venue in May 2017.
Warrington emerged victorious on that occasion and will be hoping for the same result here as he bids to regain the IBF world title he relinquished last January.
The ‘Leeds Warrior’ has seen his career trajectory derailed by the previously little-known Lara, suffering a stunning emphatic knockout defeat at Wembley Arena after 16 months of inactivity.
His chances of enacting swift revenge for one of the biggest shocks in recent British boxing history were then scuppered by a gruesome cut suffered by the hard-hitting Mexican following an accidental clash of heads that saw their Headingley rematch stopped and ruled a technical draw.
He faces another stern test against the experienced Spanish two-weight world champion Martinez, who dethroned Kid Galahad in his own sizeable upset in Sheffield in November.
