Frank Warren has revealed he currently promotes three of the top four ticket sellers in the United Kingdom.

Speaking when praising Carl Frampton and Josh Warrington for agreeing to face each other on December 22 in Manchester, Warren says the pair plus Tyson Fury are only behind Anthony Joshua in the pecking order.

“You look at fights the fans want to see and wait to see. Normally they don’t happen until one of the guys is past his best or on the way out,” said Warren.

“This is a fight involving two of the best British fighters who are in the top four in the world and are certainly two of the most exciting, well supported boxers in this country. It doesn’t get any better than this.

“They are at the top of their game and the two of them are fighting each other. This is a fight that anyone who has any interest in boxing or any idea about boxing – styles making fights – this is the one.

“This is the fight that really does matter and it will go down as one of the best fights in recent years.


“You look at the best ticket-selling fighters in this country and the top four are Anthony Joshua, Carl and Josh, then Tyson Fury. They are the biggest ticket sellers and these two guys have the most vociferous and most passionate supporters.

“The atmosphere in the venue is going to be unbelievable and we have all the ingredients to make it a cauldron and a great, great event.

“This to me is what I am in the game for, to put on events like this,” he added.

Warrington v Frampton is set to go head-to-head with a planned Matchroom Pay-Per-View involving Dillian Whyte on the same night.

Whyte is hoping to land a rematch with Dereck Chisora after the pair enjoyed a British Fight of the Year contender the first time around.
