Although tonight is perceived as being a big night for Ricky Burns, we should point out that the former world champion is not top-of-the-bill tonight in Leeds.

That honour falls to the local fighter Josh Warrington who will be hoping to add the vacant EBU featherweight title to the British and Commonwealth belts he already holds.

Warrington?s opponent tonight is Davide Dieli who will enter the ring with a record that reads 15-3 with 5 wins coming by way of knockout.

Warrington enters the ring with a record that reads 18-0 with only 2 wins coming by way of knockout. Josh rarely stops opponents but possesses the stamina and technique to trouble opponents over the full distance of the fight.

With Warrington having more fights than his opponent and also having the age advantage we fully expect Warrington to be cheered over the finishing line tonight to be declared the new European featherweight champion.
