After a few months delay, IBF featherweight champion Josh Warrington was planning to merge with WBA Titleist Xu Can, but it may finally see the light of day early next year. Mike Copinger Report “We signed a contract for a featherweight title in the UK in early February,” the pair said. Coppinger says it expects an official announcement “in the next few days.”
All signs showed that this fight was going down this past summer, But COVID put a pretty thorough Kibosch on it..
Xu (18-2, 3 KO) technically holds only the WBA “World” title, but as Copinger points out, “Super” champion Leo Santa Cruz is brave at around £ 130. Is issued. Whether or not WBA Cretin chooses to admit it properly, there is no reason not to consider the 26-year-old a true WBA featherweight champion.
Semantics aside, there are few scheduled battles with similar potential for complete mayhem. Both Xu and Warrington (30-0, 7 KO) are very prolific volume punchers, and the Compubox guys will have a very rough night.
