Josh Warrington cruises past Sofiane Takoucht in title defence

October 12 2019: Leeds, England
Josh Warrington cruised to a dominant second-round knockout victory in his IBF world featherweight title defence against France's Sofiane Takoucht in Leeds. In round two Warrington
landed a left to the head and right to the body that saw Takoucht hit the canvas for the first time. Then Warrington fired another barrage of hooks to send his challenger crashing down
again with over a minute to go in the second round. Takoucht was scrambling to hold off another onslaught as Warrington sensed blood but the referee stepped in and waved off the
contest.


Josh Warrington beats Kid Galahad by split decision

June 15 2019: Leeds, England
Josh Warrington retained his IBF featherweight title after a very close split decision win over Kid Galahad in Leeds. The home favourite gained the verdict by 116-112 and 116-113
on two of the judges' scorecards. The third judge gave the fight to the challenger by 115-113. Galahad did an excellent job of largely controlling pace and territory, but ultimately did
not appear to land enough clean punches during several very close rounds in a fight that was difficult to score.
