  1. Thanks and see you later

    And don't forget to come back and join us later this morning for Tyson Fury's heavyweight fight against unbeaten German Tom Schwarz.

    We have live radio commentary from Mike Costello and Steve Bunce in Las Vegas plus live text coverage from around 04:00 BST.

    Fury says he will win it in the first round. But will he? Or will we see another big heavyweight shock? Surely Fury will have too much power, guile and experience for Schwarz?

    But then you never know in boxing...

  2. What's next for Warrington?

    These could be some of the names Josh Warrington could be chasing if he heads off Stateside to try to unify the division.

    At the age of 28 he has some big fight-nights to come and he'll have a loud and raucous support from his Leeds followers when he gets there.

  4. 'I put pressure on myself'

    Warrington wins via split decision

    BBC Radio 5 Live

    Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, Josh Warrington said: "I'm glad I've done the business and I have still got the belt. I think I did enough to nick it in the last two rounds because it was nip and tuck but you cannot win a title by hitting pot shots.

    "They are not going to all be pretty and I'm glad I got through it, so hopefully there is a unification fight next.

    "I wanted to impress the crowd and I was thinking about using my head and rolling the shots, but there were times I was getting carried away.

    "I felt like I was one more hurdle away from getting to the States and had it slipped now, it would have been even further away so I think I put pressure on myself at how bad I wanted it.

    "I was trying a bit too hard. I was never hurt but the roar of the crowd in the last round was great and I thank them massively."

  5. 'Just the right result'

    Those rounds were extremely close and I'm sure there are people in the Kid Galahad corner who will feel unjust but I think it was just the right result.

    Every time Josh Warrington fights he leaves it all in the ring and you have to respect that. He deserves his shot at America and his day in the sun in Las Vegas or New York, wherever it may be.

  6. 'It came down to the last two rounds'

    Warrington wins via split decision

    BBC Radio 5 Live

    Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, Josh Warrington's father Sean O’Hagan said: "That was a very tight fight and it came down to the last two rounds. What it came down to was who wanted it more, and when you mention his kids and his family, he dug in.

    "I think it was terrible refereeing and how many warnings do you need before deducting points. That was not one of Josh's best performance and we were at about 70% there tonight. We will have to be better than than Stateside."

  7. 'No one left in UK'

    Warrington wins via split decision

    Josh Warrington speaks to BT Sport: "I hope so for America. I have beaten Selby, Frampton and now him. It has to be one of the other world champions. I feel I have earned that right now. There is no one left for me over here so next stop the States hopefully."

  8. 'Time for a US move'

    Warrington celebrates

    He knew he had to just get past this one and those kind of fights are hard to get yourself up for. He needs to go to the US now. How many times can he go to the well. He has had three grueling fights and he needs to go to the US now. If he has to fight in the UK again he will not have the same performances he has had before.

    I think America is beckoning for Josh Warrington now. Throughout that contest we knew every round was close and the scorecards reflected that. You have to take the hat off to Kid Galahad because the questions were whether he could do it at this level, and he was in it.

  10. 'The most tense I have been'

    Warrington wins via split decision

    Josh Warrington speaks to BT Sport: "It's probably one of the most tense I have been for fights. It's how much pressure I put on myself. Talk of the US and unifying the division I got carried away with myself and worked myself up mentally.

    "Instead of taking my time I'd get carried away and go diving in."

  11. 'I knew it was close'

    Warrington wins via split decision

    Josh Warrington speaks to BT Sport: "I knew it was close but I thought I was doing the cleaner work. He was landing clean now and again but you can't come into the back yard and win on pot-shotting singles.

    "I have to give him credit, there were a lot of holding and he was clever with some of the stuff he did inside".

  12. Post update

    Warrington wins on split decision

    Josh Warrington, bathed in sweat, has the look of a relieved man and admits he put too much pressure on himself with the chance to go to America and fight next.

    He got the job done in the end, nicking it on points if you've just tuned in. The last few rounds where he upped things a touch were ultimately key.

    We are about to hear from the champion.

  13. Post update

    Josh Warrington is elated, going to all sides of the ring and punching the air, pointing at his belt.

    A split call and my oh my that was a hard one to call.

    I believe he has done enough. It was a really close contest but I scored it nine rounds to three to Josh Warrington.
