Lee Selby says he’ll prove he can back up the hype around him as he faces Joel Brunker in a final eliminator for the IBF World Featherweight title at The O2 on Saturday October 11.

The Welshman has enjoyed a brilliant 18 months in the ring, beating British rivals Martin Lindsay, Rendall Munroe and Ryan Walsh and overcoming stiff international overseas tests against Romulo Koasicha and Viorel Simeon to be one fight away from fighting for a World title.

The 27 year old must see off the dangerous unbeaten Australian to land a shot at IBF king Evgeny Gradovich, and he believes that if he does, he’ll prove that he can be a major force in the 126lbs division.
