Josh Warrington has overcome his car accident with Maurico Lara with a dream bike… after his wife finally gave him the green light.
The 31-year-old Leeds hero suffered a grueling loss to the Mexican in February 2021, just weeks after giving up his IBF featherweight title to pursue other titles.
The father-of-two hit rock bottom after the punishing KO, but wife Natasha helped snap him out of his funk with the nod for his two-wheeled dream machine.
Ahead of today’s shot at his old belt against Kiko Martinez at his local arena, Warrington revealed: “When I was world champion I went into a motorcycle shop and I came home with a brochure and the woman just burst into tears. She said ‘you can’t, you just became a father’.
“Then after the first Lara fight I was sulking and my dad had a midlife crisis and had just bought a scooter so I figured I’d get a bike.
“The woman gave me the blessing, so I went and got one. I think she did it because I was so f*g miserable!
“She said you’ll eventually do it, so do it, but be careful.”
