Photos: Cleverly, Lee Selby, Rees Win Big in Cardiff

Cardiff, Wales - Highly regarded and highly rated British featherweight Lee Selby (19-1, 7 KOs) continued his hunt down for the WBC 126lb champion Jhonny Gonzalez with his dominant win over Gonzalez's countryman Romulo Eiko Koasicha (21-4, 12 KOs). Scores were: 119-109 (twice) and 119-110 - for the WBC #3, IBF #5, WBO #10 and WBA #12 rated fighter.  With this win, Selby defended his WBC International featherweight title for the first time.

WBA/WBO #12 cruiserweight, who has never actually fought as a 200lber before, Nathan Cleverly (27-1, 13 KOs) made his REAL successful cruiserweight debut with an easy blowout of the Trinidad-based Guyanese Shawn Corbin (17-5, 12 KOs) in round two. Cleverly acquired a vacant WBA I/C belt with this win.

Gavin Rees (38-4-1, 18 KOs) did dig extremely dip to make his farewell fight to be his one last great performance. Gary Buckland assisted in what was a not-so-epic but still very tense and very close two-way all-Wales action in the ultimate fight of a former WBA champion's sixteen-year long career. In a rematch of their first collision, which ended in a split decision for Buckland just three months ago, Rees prevailed also with split scores: 115-113 and 117-112 - in his favour and 113-116 - for Buckland. BoxingScene had it 115-114 - for the retiring Welshman.
