Lee Selby: I will do the same job on Evgeny Gradovich as I did on Joel Brunker

Lee Selby is pleased that he put 'on a show' against Brunker and is preparing to become Wales' 12th world champion
Selby-Brunker

LEE SELBY will challenge for the IBF featherweight title after a dominant performance against Joel Brunker at The O2 on Saturday night.

Selby peppered the visitor from the opening bell with his full arsenal of shots until the middle of the ninth round when a vicious left to the body took everything out of Brunker, and Selby pounced to close the show moments later, responding to the critics who wanted to see more spiteful finishing from the Barry stylist.

The 27-year-old will watch on with interest when IBF champion Evgeny Gradovich defends his title for fourth time against Jayson Velez in Omaha on November 29, and Selby insists that a world title shot will bring out the best in him.
