Sometime soon Lee Selby will get his wish to fight for the featherweight title of the world.

Having become the IBF mandatory challenger, by beating Joel Bunker, Selby is set to face the current IBF featherweight king, Evgeny Gradovich.

It had been implied that Selby would have to travel to Russia to face the champion, but it now seems that the 27 year-old could be getting to achieve his dream in the United Kingdom.

Speaking about the rumours doing the rounds, Eddie Hearn has kept everybody on tenterhooks by remarking,

?I expect to confirm the fight in the next few weeks.?

Fingers crossed that it is in the UK and not in some far flung Russian city.
