Josh, who's now unbeaten in 26 professional fights, was in full control throughout the fight but it took until the tenth round to breakthrough Ceylan's stubborn resistance.

The Dane beat the count after being knocked to the canvas for a first time, but failed to recover after going down again.

Warrington is now guaranteed a shot at the IBF World Featherweight title, currently held by Lee Selby.
