WATCH: Phil Sutcliffe Jr v Josh Leather – First Head-to-Head

Phil Sutcliffe Jr [13(8)-1(0)] was in Leeds today for the Warrington-Martinez press conference and came face-to-face with his next opponent for the first time.

The Dublin light welter faces Middlesbrough’s Josh Leather [11(5)-0] at the First Direct Arena over twelve rounds for the IBF Intercontinental title, live on BT Sport and BoxNation.

Following the press conference the pair went head-to-head for the first time ahead of Saturday’s clash for a good-natured staredown.

The two will come face-to-face again tomorrow for the official weigh-in.
