On the undercard of Kell Brook's second defence of his IBF world title, against Frankie Gavin, in London, Lee Selby challenges American based Russian world champion, Evgeny Gradovich, for his IBF featherweight crown, which the champion aims to defend for the fifth time.

Selby starts extremely well, moves around the ring, is active, and has little trouble finding great accuracy against a ponderous, predictable looking Gradovich. Selby's offence is accurate, sharp, and he boxes with intelligence in the early rounds.

Selby clearly banks the first 3 rounds, before a still strong, durable, heavy handed Gradovich tries to fight back with a comeback round or more. Selby continues to move well, sustain his work rate for a good half of the round, but it is Gradovich who is producing the weight of punch, and he has a good last minute or so, landing some hard shots. Round 5 is close, as Gradovich, knowing he is behind, manages to outwork Selby for much of the round, but Selby, continues to box brilliantly, landing with more accuracy and quality in his work.

It is all Selby as the fight approaches the halfway point, as a bemused looking Gradovich's eye streams with blood, and Selby sustains his dominance in another good for round that followed, another round surely for the Welshman. After 1 minute of round 8, the doctor advises the referee to stop the fight due to the seriousness of one of the cuts which Gradovich has, and the referee does just that, upon the decision that the cut was caused by a head clash, to the scorecards the fight goes.

It is clear that Gradovich has won a maximum of 2 rounds, in what you could say, was a bit of a boxing lesson from the challenger, and there are no bad surprises as the scores are announced, as the judges turn in fair scores of Selby 8-0, and 7-1. Selby becomes the new IBF featherweight world champion, after boxing a masterclass performance.
