Hyland apologises in advance to Warrington’s bride-to-be

When Josh Warrington takes on Jobstown’s Pajo Hyland on Saturday at the First Direct Arena, it will be the first of two big days for the Leeds Warrior.

The Matchroom featherweight is due to get married later this Summer, and Hyland [32(15)-2(1)] is planning on spoiling the wedding photos.

Hyland told Irish-Boxing.com today that “I’ll apologise to his fiance ahead of time.”

“It’s going to be a toe-to-toe war so he’s going to come out with one or two bruises.”

For Warrington, this weekend’s clash has somewhat superseded his preparations for matrimony, but ‘The Punisher’ also hopes to help him catch up on what he has missed.

“I heard him say that he hadn’t had a stag, so maybe we can go out for a few after it.”

“I’ll bring him to a strip-club, I’ll leave my wife for the night, she’ll kill me though.” Hyland joked.

“But we will have a good few drinks afterwards and have a good laugh.”

It’s obvious that 32 year old Hyland respects his opponent, but promises that “when that ring walk starts, I’ll be in fight mode and all that nice sh*t I’ve said about Josh will go out the window until the twelfth bell.”
