William Warburton post fight interview without a scratch after beating Connor Seymour


He fights in the modern tradition of Peter Buckley. His friends call him ‘Warby’. He is 29 years old, and has not won as many bouts as his age. With 23 wins, 109 losses, and nine draws, with four knockouts, In October of 2016, William Warburton, who sometimes fights every week, beat up and decisions 23-4-2 Rob Hunt.  In November 2016, he drew with 8-0 Joe Hurn,


Warburton must not have gotten a second check under the table at the Ice Arena in Hull Yorkshire on February 25, 2017, where he decked and finished off 7-0-2 prospect contender Connor Seymour. Warburton, it seems, has three fights scheduled during the first three weeks of March 2017:  Joe Hillerby, Stephen Danyo, and Anthony Hardy. Warburton goes after fighters with winning records always in condition and with complete disdain for their supposed ‘abilities’.


Warburton is a notorious ringer at junior middleweight and middleweight, fighting essentially in the zone of 146 to 162 pounds. Warburton actually won his professional debut by decisioning Craig Tomes in April 2009, before settling from the good ‘fringe’ life of an available paycheck loser. Along the way, he beat up such rising contenders and prospects as R.P. Davies, Marvin Greaves, Todd Roberts, Tommy Broadbent, Georgie Kean, Lewis Rees, and Gary Fox.  He drew with unbeaten contender Chris O’Brien twice. He beaten up on two rising fighters with winning records consecutively, Amir Unsworth and Dean Harrison, with a combined 31 wins, and ruined their careers.  He ruined the pro debut of Karl Harrison, finishing him in the third round. He beat up and finished off 12-0 prospect Chris Higgs in the seventh round. He fought brilliant technical bouts and decisioned both 12-5 Darryl Still and 6-5-1 Craig Kelly, tuning up instead on the fighters who were supposed to tune up on him.


Warburton is the king of the ringers today. Apparently, Warburton’s ability to win or lose is the same as gold ole Peter Buckley, as the crow flies. Ringer round the collar. The United Kingdom, it must be told, has always been a great breeding grounds for both rising prospects and professional losers. Peter Buckley loses 300 bouts, and beats up his opponent in his final bout. Get out of here. William Warburton is a grand successor to Buckley.
