Can I still buy tickets?

Warrington: “This guy is unknown and he is not expected to be there for the full duration.

“People expect me to win easy and that is when you can overlook it. If you are not on the ball, then it can be dangerous.

“I have been an underdog myself and I know how it gives you the motivation to upset the apple cart.”

Takoucht: “When the call came to travel to Leeds and challenge Josh I said yes straight away. It’s a chance to beat the best featherweight in the world.

“He beat Lee Selby when nobody thought he could win and then a great fighter, Carl Frampton. It was close against Kid Galahad, but he found a way to win.
