Professional career[edit]

2016[edit]

Leaving Matchroom and joining Frank Warren[edit]

On December 2, Matchroom Boxing announced that Warrington's promotional contract with them had expired. Warrington's promoter and Matchroom managing director Eddie Hearn said in a statement "we did not share the same plans as his team and decided not to make any further offers."[8]

After much speculation, Warrington officially signed for rival British promoter Frank Warren in a "long-term promotional deal" later in December.[9] Warren has said he is confident of delivering a first world title shot for Warrington and delivering a number of shows in Leeds in 2017.[10][11]

Team[edit]

Warrington is trained by his father Sean O'Hagan.

He is managed by Steve Wood, from VIP Boxing, who also manage WBO lightweight world champion Terry Flanagan.

Personal life[edit]

Warrington's profession is as a dental technician. He is an avid supporter of local teams Leeds United [12] and Leeds Rhinos.
