    Warren got asked about Galahad having a final eliminator for Warrington and he looked pissed off beyond belief.

    What is the big fight that can be made for him?
    I couldn’t see GRJ or LSC fighting him, so where does he go?

    Frank isn’t gonna pay for another Galahad fight surely. Vacated the belt and moves weight? Leaves Frank Warren, goes to America?

    Can see this happening.

    Leeds fans haven't been on a massive away day for years. I think Warrington would take 5,000 to Vegas.

    He's going to target GRJ first. Try get a unification there, there's already been some interaction with them and there's a possibility for next may at E.R. failing that going anywhere, he will target shakur, should he pick the wbo.
    His contract with Frank is up soon and should a promoter guarantee him a unification fight with decent money, I would think Josh would be "All ears"
    He hasn't even contemplated moving up yet and he wont be dropping his belt, so when it comes back round to galahad, he will fight him again. Only question is, which promoter he will be with at the time.

    Hats off if he really wants the Gary Russell fight but Russell would stand Warrington on his head!

    Yeah Russell's far too quick for Warrington but if the fight can be made then go for it. No point just defending his IBF title in Leeds.

    I can also see a Stevenson fight next year and if Josh was able to win, then possibly Conlan back end of 2020 would generate big money In Ireland.

    Most people on here and other forums said that about Selby too.

    Interesting points all round but why would GRJ come to England ? Have you seen how arrogant the man is and he only fights once a year. Stevenson could be likely but do you reckon they’re gonna risk his world title so soon after winning it? Guess that’s up to frank to convince them.

    I’m personally just not sure where he goes...

    Think grj is an eadier option than Stevenson .shakur will only get better and grj lack of time in ring surely cant be good this stage of his career

    They need a stadium fight to get grj over, thats the only way the cash can be generated,there's talks of may next year at E.R..
    If Arum offers the better pot for shakur over in the states then Josh will travel there. He was calling Josh out not long ago, when Josh was already tied up in the kid fight. If he wins the wbo then him and Josh are freed up to fight each other, well see if he takes it. Whichever it is grj or Stevenson, Josh will push hard for them now, with grj, no1 target.

    Last week you claimed Lomachenko, now 2 more names. The reality is he's fighting the world's no.118 and his support is decreasing per fight.

    Your right it's decreasing, it went from 20,000 to 12000 to 10,000 and who knows maybe this fight does a little less at 8,000. Galahad did 160 tickets for his world title challenge in his own county, you never know doofus he might do 200 next time. So he's on the increase while Josh is declining, you're quite right.
    He said he'd fight Loma yes he did but it looks like he has a better chance with the guys who's already got titles at 126. Any of them 3 names will do. Josh will fight any of them pal. He's not the type to turn his back on a fight , unlike some we both know.

    I don't get some of the hate / Warrington here. Seems to be down to his next opponent?

    He's just beaten Frampton, Selby and Kid Galahad. All British and all I would say are or were world class when he fought them.

    Then you've got Callum Smith (no personal attack against him just comparing the reality) who's just the defacto no1 SMW in the world, has just fought a career middleweight a year after his biggest win, fights Ryder next (not a world champ nor has been) and then probably fight another true middleweight in Saunders / potentially Eubank Jnr next.

    He doesn't get half the **** Warrington does on here!

    Yet people give Warrington **** for taking one soft fight next, whilst obviously waiting to actually TRY line up a unification fight.
