It appears that Tyson Fury won’t be the only boxer in attendance at tonight’s WWE SmackDown taping, as Josh Warrington will also be at the show.
The undefeated IBF Featherweight Champion will be in attendance for the show, as he confirmed during a recent interview with SunSport.
“I’m very much looking forward to being at the wrestling this Friday in Manchester,” Warrington told SunSport. “I remember growing up watching WWE and I’ll be coming along with my nephew, who is two generations down the line and a huge fan now.”
While Warrington isn’t expected to be part of the show, he did comment on boxers getting involved in wrestling, warning people that he will drop them with a DDT if needed.
“It’s great to see so many boxers being involved both past and present. Over the years we’ve had Floyd Mayweather and of course we’ve just seen Tyson Fury – who did really well,” he said. “So I’m really looking forward to being a part of it but I’m going to let everyone know now – if anyone starts on me then they’ll be getting a DDT from the Leeds Warrior. I might only 5ft 7in, but a kick to the stomach and a DDT and they’ll be out for the count. Let’s have it!”
