Boxing was never the primary aspect of Warrington’s life. Growing up, he had a hard time managing multiple jobs and getting a university degree. He started as a cleaner at a dentist’s clinic but after four grueling years, got a diploma in dental technology.

He got into the sport because of his father and trainer, Sean O’Hagan. ‘The Leeds Warrior’ has not looked since. He got his first taste of a title in 2012 when he beat Chris Male to win the British featherweight title. He added a few more regional titles on his way to becoming world champion.

2018 was the year when Warrington secured the world title to his name. He beat Lee Selby to become the IBF world champion. However, he vacated the title in January 2021 to make the big-name fights possible.

Therefore, 2021 promises to be a big year for the former champion.

Outside the boxing ring, Warrington is an ardent fan of Leeds United Football Club who plays in the premier league. He has walked out with the players on multiple occasions while also fighting in their home stadium a few times.

Josh Warrington Record 2021

As of January 2021, Warrington has a perfect record of 30-0. However, only 7 of these victories have come by knockout. Therefore, this shows the Englishman’s fighting style. Despite this, he is not one to pick and choose his opponents to preserve his ‘O’. Instead, he is looking to make the big fights happen to become a lineal featherweight champion.

This will only get more impressive as the year goes on with the potential opponents that rumors suggest.
