Brook-Jones II Card - Lee Selby Faces Viorel Simion

Lee Selby will face unbeaten Viorel Simion on the Betfair’s ‘The Homecoming’ bill at the MS3 Craven Park in Hull on July 13, live on Sky Sports.

The Welsh featherweight star switches from the Bolton show on June 29 to meet the Romanian on the bumper outdoor show topped by the debut of Olympic Gold medal star Luke Campbell MBE. It’s a huge night for Selby who has excelled in the last 18 months, claiming the British and Commonwealth titles in style against Stephen Smith and impressing in defences against John Simpson, Patrick Okine, Martin Lindsay and Corey O’Connell.

The 31 year old Simion won the WBC International title in July 2011 and has defended the belt successfully twice since, and Selby’s promoter Eddie Hearn is excited by the prospect of seeing Selby tested at a higher level.

“I’m delighted to have been able to bring Viorel over for this fight,” said Hearn. “It’s Lee’s first big test on the World stage and having watched Viorel in action, I think we can expect a cracking fight where Lee will show everybody just how good he is.”

Selby and Simion feature on a massive night of action to close the boxing season on Sky Sports, with Campbell’s debut supported by the blockbuster welterweight rematch between unbeaten Sheffield star Kell Brook and American danger man Carson Jones, Derry Mathews and Hull’s Tommy Coyle for the vacant Commonwealth lightweight title, English super middleweight champion Rocky Fielding, unbeaten middleweight sensation John Ryder, light welterweight Curtis Woodhouse and local talents Joel Haigh and Zak Collins.

Tickets for Betfair’s ‘The Homecoming’ are on sale now priced £25, £40, £60 and £100 from www.hullkr.com – VIP packages priced £150 are available exclusively from Matchroom Boxing at www.matchroomboxing.com and on 01277 359900.

I'm really feeling for my boy Kell, the guy worked his way to a title shot, only for injury to scupper his chances twice. Damn that's some tough luck. I hope he has managed to stay focus and hasn't over…

[QUOTE=shenmue;13469978]I think the Bookies will have JMM as the favorite as he just knocked out Pac while Bradley had close fight with pac and a war with Ruslan. I think if Bradley fights JMM like he did Ruslan he might…
