Warrington vs Lopez: What was said?

Warrington: “I’m very excited to be back in Leeds.

“It’s going to be a tough fight, he shows up, he’s wild and erratic, I have a history with Mexican fighters, but I hope to put on a great performance in front of my home crowd.

“I’ve been saying this for so long about going to the United States and fighting in a unification fight. It’s the dream, but due to delays with jaw and hand injuries, I have to fight my mandatory now.

“I am fully focused on my work, on the early closure of the salon and on ending 2022 in style.”
