Warrington not bothered by Hyland missing weight

Josh Warrington isn’t giving much credence to the fact Patrick Hyland came in two pounds over weight for their proposed featherweight WBC international title fight tomorrow night.

Hyland, who has weighed in at featherweight since he was 17 years of age, tipped the scales at 128.375lbs and didn’t shed the requisite 2 pounds 6 ounces in the extra time allocated by the WBC, possibly by choice. 

However, Warrington has suggested ‘The Punisher’ might be a slight disadvantage going into the bout indicating he may have punished himself to get as close to the limit as possible.

Regardless he claims he ‘goes into the fight like I am fighting Mike Tyson’ and isn’t reading too much into Friday’s weigh in.

The Leeds fighter also gave his views on a ‘pick em’ fight between Carl Frampton versus Leo Santa Cruz when speaking to IFL TV.
