Jack Bateson (R) can be Leeds’ next star boxer

Jack Bateson has aspirations to follow in the path of Josh Warrington but can he become the next boxing star born out of Leeds?

A gifted amateur, the 25-year old has made a smooth and swift transition to the paid ranks, but suffered a first career setback this week, having to pull out of a scheduled English title fight – billed for the undercard to Warrington’s latest IBF featherweight world title defence this Saturday- with a hand injury.

Sky Scholar Bateson, a major ticket seller in his home city, will now have to take time out as he looks to make a full recovery, postponing his lofty ambitions for 2020 and beyond.
