On the undercard of the Haskins v Morales IBF world bantamweight fight last night, the Welsh flyweight Andrew Selby was in action.

Selby, a classy amateur fighter, was having his fifth professional fight and was taking on Louis Norman for the British flyweight title.

The fight only went ahead when during the weigh-in; Norman just made the weight after stripping off his underpants after tipping the scales 0.9 pounds over the limit.

Selby took the decision, on points, and in the process became the quickest ever Welsh fighter to win a British title, time-wise and in the fewest number of bouts with Selby only turning professional in October 2015.

The victory moves Selby to 5-0 whilst Norman slips to 12-2.

Andrew Selby, 27-years-of-age, appears to be a fighter in a hurry and it?ll be interesting to see in which direction he is steered next.
