Warrington to face Tubieron

The Leeds featherweight faces a tough task in his home town as he looks to pick up the vacant WBC international crown against ‘The Scorpion’ from the Philippines.

Tubieron fought Carlo Magali for the WBC international title in December with the action-packed encounter ending in a controversial draw and leaving the title vacant.

Warrington will be aiming to continue a meteoric rise over the last year that has seen him beat Samir Mouniemne, Rendall Munroe, Martin Lindsay and Davide Dieli in a dazzling run of displays.

The 24-year-old travels to Berlin to fight on the undercard of Paul Smith???s super-middleweight world??title rematch against Arthur Abraham on February 21 before returning to the UK to prepare for the crunch clash against Tubieron.

Welsh star Nathan Cleverly??will also return to action in the light-heavyweight division on the Leeds bill. He faces German WBA champion Jurgen Braehmer, while Martin J Ward will have a rematch with Maxi Hughes in a??British title eliminator following their exciting draw in London at the end of 2014.??

British light-heavyweight champion Bob Ajisafe will also feature on the card.
