It has been announced that two fierce British rivals, in the featherweight division, will go head-to-head on 19 May.

Lee Selby will be defending his IBF world title against Josh Warrington with Selby having no qualms about venturing to the home city of the challenger.

Talking about the fight everybody wants to see, Selby is quoted in the media as having remarked,

‘The plan is to beat Warrington and then go over to Belfast and beat Carl Frampton.

‘He’s got emotionally attached to me. I will give him an educated boxing lesson… and then move on.’


Warrington, on the other hand,

‘For the past three or four years our names have always been mentioned together.

‘He’s always been that one step ahead of me and everyone has always looked at him as the number one featherweight in the UK, but that will change on 19 May.’


The fight, Selby?s fifth defence of his world title, pits two boxers together who have records that are almost similar.

Warrington, the challenger, is undefeated in 26 fights whilst Selby has suffered just the 1 defeat in 27 fights.

Does anyone care to pick a winner?
