Andrew Selby vs. Kevin Satchell Purse Bid Won By Sanigar Events

Sanigar Events have won the rights to stage the British Flyweight Championship between Champion Andrew Selby (5-0) from Barry and the undefeated former British, Commonwealth and European Champion Kevin Satchell (16-0).

Satchell is undefeated in 16 contests and is ranked number 4 in the world by the WBO and number 8 by the IBF. He has recently relinquished his European title in the quest for world honours but will first have to get past the talented Welshman who holds his old title. The winner of the contest would look to challenge for a world title in 2017.

Andrew Selby, the fastest Welshman ever to capture the Lonsdale belt in just five professional contests has world title ambitions of his own and feels that a win over world ranked Satchell may fast track him to the top.

"I feel that I am getting better with every performance and my last win over Louis Norman in Cardiff was just a taste of how much I can give. I've watched Satchell for a long time and I knew when I turned pro that he would be in my sights. It is great that Chris and Jamie (Sanigar) have won the bids and hopefully we can have another packed out home show."

Promoter Jamie Sanigar is delighted to have won the purse bids and knows how important home advantage can be.

"I’m delighted to win the bid, we believe Andrew is one of the best prospects in World boxing and the fight with Kevin Satchell is a great all British clash against two unbeaten fighters. It’s a real test for Andrew and I think this will bring the best out of him as we move closer to his dream of becoming World Champion like his brother Lee. We will announce the date and venue of the fight very soon that’s due to take place before the end of November 2016"
