Amateur Career

  • After a slow start to his 48-bout amateur career (his diminutive stature made match-making difficult), Warrington’s take on one particular amateur contest, helped to inform his action-packed style. “I was watching a fight on a show and it was really boring,” he explained, shaking his head. “I remember seeing the decision and one of the lads afterwards was crying his eyes out saying: “I got robbed! I got robbed!” and I remember thinking: ‘You didn’t get robbed you just didn’t do nothing.’ I just told myself from then on that to win the fights, you’ve got to throw punches – simple as that. “It’s only three rounds. I can do three rounds non-stop on the bags, and from then on I took that mentality into every fight. I got a bit of a following on the amateur circuit round Yorkshire because I was busy and I’d be non-stop. The back-end of my amateur career was when I had most of my fights. I just came from nowhere.” [1]
