Selby Expects To Dominate Warrington: That Ceylan Was Terrible!

by Shaun Brown

Lee Selby looks to set to defend his IBF Featherweight title for the fourth time before the end of the year.

The announcement could be made this week in what will likely be a voluntary defence of the title the Welshman won against Evgeny Gradovich two years ago in London.

Should Selby get past his next assignment, then attention will likely be turned to his mandatory defence against unbeaten Josh Warrington. The Leeds favourite secured his mandatory position for Selby's title with a 10th round TKO victory over Denmark's Dennis Ceylan in a final eliminator last weekend, in front of his loyal home support.

"I never saw the fight. I was out with my two dogs," Selby said when 'Scene asked him if he had watched the fight.

"I didn't' watch the fight but the next day I watched the first round and the last round, and that was it."

Selby added that he didn't see anything from Warrington that impressed him -- "Same as usual" -- but found himself unimpressed by Ceylan, despite having only watched those two rounds of the fight.

"What I wasn't impressed with was that Ceylan. He looked terrible. Watched the first round and his timing was all out. The last round he just fell apart. The shots he got put down with, there was nothing in them."

After Warrington's victory, the 26-year-old told BT Sport that he wanted the Selby fight "Up here" in Leeds and reiterated his desire to have it outdoors at Elland Road, the home of Leeds United.

Selby fully realises that unless the fight is made outdoors in Cardiff, a possibility being the Cardiff City Stadium, then he will have to travel into Warrington's back yard. So, is Selby concerned that the style of Warrington, as well as the noise from his fans could play a part in swaying the judges to favour the challenger's efforts in the fight.

"Listen, the judges won't be needed," he quickly replied.

"A blind man will be able to judge this fight. All the noise coming out of that Leeds crowd will be like cha-ching, cha-ching."

As he has stated to Boxing Scene previously Selby is craving the type of fight where he will be tested. And while he sees a fight with Warrington as a high-profile one, it isn't one, he believes, he will have to be at full throttle for.

"To be honest every fight I have is routine. I haven't been in with someone who works harder than me, no-one who is faster or better. I just get in there and just win. I enjoy it.

"Every one's been a comfortable win. Not once have I had to dig in in a round. I haven't got out of second gear. They just can't handle my boxing ability. Maybe once I face someone who can out box me you'll see a different side of me. At the moment I'm just enjoying myself."
