IBF featherweight champion Lee Selby, the “Welsh Mayweather” as he’s known to Boxing News, puts his world title on the line against Jonathan Victor Barros on the Eubank-Abraham bill at Wembley Arena on Saturday (July 15).

He is putting the final touches on his training camp and expects a tough challenge from the Argentine. “It’s gone well. I’ve had brilliant sparring. I always train 100% every training session. Everything’s on track,” Lee told BN.

“He’s a very good fighter, strong, experienced, punches hard. But I believe if I box to the best of my ability I can beat anybody.”
