McGuigan: British Champ Warrington wants nothing to do with McCullough

British and Commonwealth featherweight champion Josh Warrington wants nothing to do with Marco McCullough claims Cyclone Promotions CEO Barry McGuigan.

The former World Champion and Irish Boxing legend revealed they had an offer to fight the Leeds puncher, who claimed the British strap with an impressive performance over Martin Lindsay, rebuffed and stressed Team Warrington don’t want to face the Irish featherweight champion.

However, McGuigan remains unfazed by the rebuff and is confident he can secure titles for the 24 year old over the coming years.

“Warrington would be a target. We already asked Warrington he won’t take the fight,” McGugian said at a press conference this week.

” I asked Steve Wood and he said no, no. He said ‘Eddie (Hearn) has already offered us a date’. He politely gave me the slip, but that is fine, we don’t care about that because we will plough on.

“My job is to look beyond Friday and draw up a structure that will enable Marc to fulfill his potential. Warrington is a very nice kid a fast wear you down fighter, but that would suit Marc. He would love that I guarantee you he will come nowhere near us, but we are not worried about that.”

This kid is going to be an awesome middleweight. He has really impressed us tremendously in training. He has had top quality sparring. He has been with light heavyweights and light middleweights and he is looking magnificent. He has a tough fight against a guy who has traveled all over the world and has half wins half loses, but that is what we want for Conrad.
