Lee Selby and Nathan Cleverly will co-headline a bumper show at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff on May 17, live on Sky Sports, with tickets on sale now. Former World Light Heavyweight champion Cleverly will make his debut up at Cruiserweight on the bill, while Selby could defend the European Featherweight title he won against Rendall Munroe at the same venue in February, with promoter Eddie Hearn also hunting a potential World title eliminator for the highly-rated Barry stylist.
The stand-out fight on that February bill was the fantastic all-Welsh Lightweight battle between Gary Buckland and Gavin Rees, which Buckland edged on a split decision, and Rees will get his chance for revenge as the pair clash in a rematch on the card.
Unbeaten Super Middleweight sensation Callum Smith defends his WBC International title against Swansea’s Tobias Webb while unbeaten Light Welterweight Chris Jenkins continues to build to a British title shot, and Limerick Middleweight contender Andy Lee will also be in action.
Cleverly’s bow at Cruiserweight comes back at the scene of his last outing, where he lost his World title to Sergey Kovalev in August, and the 27 year old is itching to get back into the groove.Tags: Andy Lee , Nathan Cleverly , Gavin Rees , Gary Buckland , Lee Selby , Eddie Hearn , Callum Smith
