Warrington: I found my hunger again

Josh Warrington insists he has found his hunger again as he prepares for his world featherweight title showdown against Kiko Martinez.

Warrington vacated his IBF title 14 months ago as a mega-fight against another world champion looked likely, but what on paper appears to be some sort of fight against Mauricio Lara ended in disaster for the British fighter as he suffered the first professional defeat of his career.

A ninth-round stoppage revenge attempt was thwarted by an accidental clash of headers early in last September’s rematch as a technical draw was declared.

But as he seeks to draw a line under a disastrous 2021 by reclaiming his former crown in his hometown of Leeds, Warrington believes he has rediscovered the mentality that saw him become world champion.

“At the end of 2019 I loved sports, I was the best in the world,” he said.

“But I was 15 months out and then just took a little tick-over fight and ended up being knocked out.

“The rematch, there was rehabilitation, questions about whether I was still there and had I lost it? The side was enough to beat Lara but it wasn’t the best side. What happened happened in the fight.

“But when I got back to the gym and started camp, I had the bit between my teeth like I used to, like I was riding. I love it and can’t wait to fight the night.

“Some boxing pundits say ‘he’s seen better days’, I’m doing fine and I want to show them otherwise. Physically I’m in great condition and mentally the confidence is at an all time high.

Martinez vs Warrington Prediction

Many questions have been asked about Warrington since that devastating loss to unheralded Lara that derailed a previously unbeaten career.

Having just given up his IBF belt to seek other titles due to the organization’s refusal to sanction a fight with WBC champion Xu Can, since deposed by Leigh Wood, suddenly a brutal knockout by a little-known opponent after 16 months of inactivity sabotaged all of his best-laid plans.

The fact that this macabre cut stopped him from seeking revenge on Lara will always eat away at Warrington, but he needs to think hard for this one and prove there’s still plenty left in the tank.

Another defeat seems unthinkable at this point if he is to remain relevant at the top level and potentially continue to pull off those mammoth featherweight matchups.

Although he knows how to beat Martinez, the experienced and cunning Spaniard remains a tough and dangerous proposition, as Kid Galahad knows all too well.

It’s all about mentality for Warrington, who will want to feed off his ever-adoring audience and prove that his energetic, teeming style and punch resistance remain intact.
