AUS­TRALIA’S Joel Brunker can set up a world ti­tle tilt when he con­tests the big­gest fight of his ca­reer against un­beaten English feath­er­weight Josh War­ring­ton tonight.

The bout will be broad­cast live on TV in the UK from War­ring­ton’s home city of Leeds, where the 13,000ca­pac­ity arena is sold out.

Vic­tory would put Brunker (29-1) in the frame for a WBC ti­tle shot against Gary Rus­sell Jr or a re­match with IBF belt holder Lee Selby, the only man to beat the 29-year-old.

Brunker says he is in top shape to beat War­ring­ton, who has been likened to Ricky Hat­ton for his at­tack­ing style.
