This afternoon at 2:30 pm ET streaming live on ESPN+ in the US and airing on BT Sport in the UK (7:30 local time), Josh Warrington returns home again to Leeds, England, to defend his IBF featherweight title against Sofiane Takoucht.

Warrington, 28, has emerged in the last year-and-a-half as one of the top 126-pounders in the world, scoring quality wins over Lee Selby, Carl Frampton, and Kid Galahad. France’s Takoucht, 33, is admittedly something of a victory lap defense on paper, but if any of the titleholders in this division have actually earned a soft touch right now, it’s Warrington.

Two Commonwealth titles will also be on the line. Zelfa Barrett will defend the Commonwealth super featherweight title against Jordan McCorry, while Lyndon Arthur and Emmanuel Anim will fight for the vacant Commonwealth light heavyweight belt.

Main Card (ESPN+, 2:30 pm ET)

  • Josh Warrington (29-0, 6 KO) vs Sofiane Takoucht (35-3-1, 13 KO), featherweights, 12 rounds
  • Zelfa Barrett (22-1, 13 KO) vs Jordan McCorry (18-6-1, 4 KO), super featherweights, 12 rounds
  • Lyndon Arthur (15-0, 12 KO) vs Emmanuel Anim (14-2-1, 12 KO), light heavyweights, 12 rounds
  • Reece Mould (12-0, 6 KO) vs Bayardo Ramos (8-14-1, 4 KO), featherweights, 6 rounds
  • Shabaz Masoud (5-0, 1 KO) vs Yesner Talavera (15-11-1, 4 KO), featherweights, 6 rounds
