Today Matchroom Sports has announced that Leeds fighter josh Warrington will be facing Patrick Hyland on the 30th of July at the Leeds arena, Leeds. The fight will be contested for josh Warrington’s WBC international title and the fight in my opinion a very competitive fight.
Patrick Hyland has a record of 31-2 and his only defeats have come in world title challenges. His last outing was in defeat to WBC featherweight champion Garry Russell Jr in April and the other defeat against Javier Fortuna in 2012. Hyland will be bringing an strong Irish contingent to the arena which will be making the atmosphere white hot .
Quotes from Eddie Hearn suggest Hyland has been a targeted opponent for a while “Warrington vs Hyland is a fight that we’ve looked to make in the past and it’s a real crossroads clash,” said promoter Eddie Hearn (Edward). “Patrick has only had two defeats both in World title challenges, while Josh is set for his first shot at a World crown later this year – victory for both men on July 30 is vital.”
“Their battle tops a great bill with Huddersfield’s Tyrone Nurse and Hull’s Tommy Coyle meeting in a mouth-watering Yorkshire classic for Tyrone’s British Super-Lightweight title, Tommy’s local rival Luke Campbell MBE is back in title action, Gamal Yafai defends his Commonwealth Super-Bantamweight strap against Yorkshireman Josh Wale, and there’s a host of classy fighters in action including one of the world’s top prospects in Ryan Burnett and hard-hitting Brixton Heavyweight Dillian Whyte.”
Other details on opponents for the other fighters apart from Nurse v Coyle, Yafai v Wale and Warrington v Hyland will be announced as hithardnews.com is aware of them.
