Lee Selby Promises To Punish Barros on Eubank-Abraham Card

Lee Selby is out for revenge against Jonathan Barros after again agreeing to defend his IBF featherweight title against the Argentinian this summer.

The two are to meet at the Wembley Arena on the undercard of Chris Eubank Jnr’s super-middleweight fight with Arthur Abraham on July 15, six months after their scheduled meeting was cancelled at 24 hours’ notice.

Selby, 30, had been preparing to make the third defence of his title at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand on January 28 until Barros failed to meet the licensing conditions of the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

After a lengthy training camp and his supporters following him to the US, Selby no longer had a fight and instead was forced into a keep-busy, non-title match-up against Andoni Gago in London in March.

The Welshman also remains a potential opponent for Carl Frampton later in 2017, but he said: “Barros is going to pay, simple as that.

“I was mucked around last time because he and his team couldn’t get their act together and this time I can’t wait. I am absolutely thrilled to be fighting him at last, on a huge bill in London and with the stage set for me.”

He added: “I have been a worthy IBF world champion and beating a tough customer like Barros will put me in the hot seat for a fight with Carl Frampton or Scott Quigg, or any of the other world champions. Either of those would suit me down to earth.

“But first it is Barros and I’m determined to make him pay. I don’t need any motivation for this one. I was there in Las Vegas ready to fight and through no fault of my own it didn’t happen. It is now and Barros will be taken apart.”

It has also been confirmed the promising Kid Galahad will fight at Wembley Arena on the 15th, at featherweight against Denmark’s Dennis Ceylan.

Lee Selby is almost certainly along with bjs my least favorite champion in boxing. Nothing against brits, but I really dislike these guys approach to slight success. I really dislike lee, he's unknown, not respected and self-entitled. Supremely self-entitled.

I'm not sure if it's true or not, but I heard Russell was moving to 130Lb.

[QUOTE=Corelone;17765476]Yeah, I don't get it. Russell beats all the top contenders like the great Patrick Hyland and the feared Escondon. He's blazing a path through the division.[/QUOTE] GRJ is the best win on Lomachenko's resume. But when it's time for…

Barros isn't much of a threat. He's probably five years past his best and a silly mandatory. Selby ought to win pretty easily and hopefully go on to bigger fights
