Warrington: Lee Selby is Not Levels Above Me, I Can Beat Him!

Leeds Warrior Josh Warrington has hit back at Lee Selby's claims that he is "big-headed", and criticised Selby's performance against Eduardo Ramirez on December 9th.

IBF World Featherweight Champion Selby outpointed the tough Mexican at the Copper Box, while his mandatory challenger Warrington worked as a ringside pundit.

"For me personally, I wasn't impressed," the unbeaten Featherweight told the BoxNation Podcast. "He said after the fight he thought it was a decent performance. I'd have gone home and been devastated with that performance.

"I've always respected his abilities and what he's done. I just think I beat him. I've got a massive belief. I've felt like that for a few years now. [He] isn't levels above, I don't believe so anyway. When that fight happens, I'll get my chance to prove that," added Warrington.

A few weeks ago, Selby argued that Warrington had "started to believe his own hype," adding, "he can’t be a bad fighter, but I don’t think he’s a great fighter."

He has also claimed that his rival is "obsessed" with him - something that Warrington absolutely denies.

"I see he's tried to play the victim card now, and make me out to be a villain. But let's rewind 18 months ago when they were going on about my wedding, and me getting offered the fight then. I got called a 'coward', a 'bottle job'," he recalled.

"It might just seem like nothing, but that frustrated me a lot. I haven't forgotten about that. I got slaughtered from their team, I got absolutely slaughtered."

Warrington, who stopped European Champion Dennis Ceylan on October 21st to set up a shot against Selby next year, warned Selby about his trash-talking.

"I haven't been gifted this opportunity, I've earned it now. I haven't forgotten about last year. Don't disrespect me, don't disrespect my fans, and pipe down with your arrogance as well!"
