Warrington v Selby confirmed for Elland Road

BOXER Lee Selby has confirmed his bout with Josh Warrington on May 19 will take place at Leeds United’s Elland Road ground.

The stadium will be home for born and bred Leeds man Warrington. Selby will be defending his IBF featherweight title.

The pair have been at the centre of a heated rivalry and will finally be able to sort it out in the ring.

“The plan is to beat Warrington and then go over to Belfast and beat Carl Frampton,” said Selby.

“He’s got emotionally attached to me. I will give him an educated boxing lesson and then move on,” added the 30-year-old.

This will be Selby’s fifth defence of the world title which he claimed in 2015.
