The servicemen and women played bagpipes and drums as Warrington came out into the arena, producing a spectacular atmosphere for the title defence against Sofiane Takoucht.

The 28-year-old won his belt from Lee Selby at Elland Road in May 2018.

He subsequently defended it against Carl Frampton and Kid Galahad before opting to face Takoucht when unificaitons did not present themselves.
