IBF world featherweight champion, Josh Warrington, has gone off at rival Mauricio Lara after the Mexican’s made comments where he said he wants to retire the Brit in their third fight.
Lara believed that Warrington had some choice words about his father, ones that the Leeds Warrior explained as being miscommunication and went on to say his beef with the Brit is now personal and that he wants to end the champion’s career.
In an interview with Boxing Social, Warrington glared down the camera to fire back at the ‘ungrateful’ Mexican and said he ought to be more appreciative of the opportunity he gave him.
“Mauricio thinks I’ve called his Dad a w***er or whatever, I didn’t even f***ig know his Dad was a part of his team. I couldn’t give a f**k about his Dad.
If he wants to go down that route, then yeah his Dad is a w***er. ‘It’s personal now’ I want to end his career’?, what a f***ing bell pipe. I’ve given him his f***ing biggest pay day of his career, he wants to be f***ing grateful, he will be a f***ing multi-millionaire in pesos, f***ing ungrateful c***ts. Making it personal? What a w***er.”
Since the two fights with Warrington, Lara has gone on to establish himself as one of the top contenders in the division at just 24-years-old.
A trilogy fight would make more sense than ever, as the ‘Bronco’ seeks his first world title shot and there now seems serious beef between the two of them. Back-to-back third round victories, following his crippling knockout over Warrington, have led many to believe fans that the Mexican could be Warrington’s kryptonite – something ‘The Leeds Warrior’ strongly disagrees with.
Meanwhile, Warrington has won back his IBF title, by defeating Kiko Martinez back in March and makes his first defence against another Mexican puncher, in Luis Alberto Lopez, on December 10th.
