Josh Warrington has been handed the first loss of his professional boxing career. The Leeds Warrior took on Mauricio Lara inside of the SSE Wembley Arena this Saturday, and his Mexican opponent was a huge underdog in the bout.
Warrington did not look right at all throughout the matchup. Lara took down Josh Warrington in the fourth and he continued to dominate throughout the rest of the rounds. Warrington seemed to get his feet back a little in the fifth/sixth rounds but the flurries from the Mexican were too much for the British fighter in the end.
