Josh Warrington makes the third defence of his featherweight world title tonight at the Leeds Arena. Frenchman Sofiane Takoucht will be facing the hostile local crowd this evening, as the Leeds Warrior looks to follow up his wins over Carl Frampton and Kid Galahad following last summer's unforgettable night at Elland Road, when he took the belt from Lee Selby. Warrington was hoping for a unification bout by now, but has been left frustrated by his potential opponents and will be hoping that a win over the unfancied Takoucht will be the springboard to bigger and better bouts in 2020. With Leeds United talisman Pablo Hernandez set to accompany Warrington on his ringwalk, expect plenty of noise from a packed Leeds Arena as the city's first male world champion looks to maintain his unbeaten record. Follow updates as they happen right here.
