Prediction,

This is a great match up! Us fans in the UK have been wondering if this fight was actually going to happen, it was been talked about for years, good to see it will take place afterall.

This is a very interesting fight, because Selby, the champion, but the away fighter, in what will be a very, very hostile arena, was considered a level above Warrington a few years back, but as time has gone on, part of it has been promotional, but Warrington has impressed time and time again, and moved up the levels, and now the general concensus is that this is pretty much a 50/50 fight.

If I was Selby, I would not have agreed to go to Leeds, I would have been prepared to travel, and I would travel to Yorkshire as well, but I wouldn't go to Leeds, I think Sheffield, Doncaster, but not Leeds. I think Manchester would have been a good location for this fight.

It is very easy to get carried away and say a fighter is good based on a lot of support from his home fans, but time after time, it has been more a case of popularity with Warrington, and not him actually making a statement, and I was not impressed by him as a world class fighter, based on his narrow win against Kiko Martinez. If you weren't sold on Warrington before the Ceylan fight, your opinion on him had to have changed, because that was a very good win, and a very good performance against the unbeaten Dane, a fighter who is a great European level fighter. I think after proving to be a level above a European level fighter as good as Ceylan, breaking him down and stopping him like that, you have to say Warrington has proven himself on a high level, and is deserving of a world title shot.

Lee Selby is very good, at any level, I do not think he is as good as a lot of Brits say he is, I certainly don't think he is the best at 126, but he has defended his world title many times, he always at least fairly well overall, shows at least spots of brilliant boxing ability. I don't think Selby has improved that much in the last few years, he has always been very good, but the flaws he had, mistakes, weaknesses, a few years ago, seem to still be there in his current fights, and I think at this level, he is very beatable.

Neither of these guys are big punchers, both can do damage, Selby is good at setting guys up, catching them cold, he used a lot of method, timing as well as a degree of obvious power when he knocked out Stephen Smith, Warrington has not stopped many, but he is a pressure fighter, makes you work, attacks the body, knocks it out of you, wears you down, and really, does use what power he does have very well.

I think this fight will go the distance, I don't think Selby will give Warrington enough ground to sustain relentless pressure and volume punching, but I don't think Selby will have the level of authority to set Warrington up, draw him onto something spectacular.

I think you could say Selby is a better boxer, Warrington is a better fighter, I think Selby has better movement, he is more methodical, but Warrington is better at applying pressure, he might be the slightly heavier handed as well.

I think Warrington will push Selby from first bell to last, I think he will have some really good rounds, but for a lot of mid rounds, Selby's extra skill, world level experience will pay off, and he will pick up the points. I think when they are both tired late, it might become rugged, trenches sort of fight, if the fight nears the end like that, I think that's more Warrington's fight than Selby's.

I think a lot of people will think Selby has won by a couple, a lot of people will think vise verse, a lot of people will have it a draw, the odd one or two might have it either way by 3 or 4.
I think Warrington will get the decision, he'll win wide, I think one judge might have it close, the other two, not, one might even be 110-118.

The featherweight division is very competitive, full of good champions and challengers, no strong candidates for a top 10 world ranking, but a lot of very good fighters. It would be great to see the winner of this fight in a unification bout late this year or 2019, against Valdez, the winner of Russell vs Diaz, or the winner of the Santa Cruz vs Mares rematch.

Credit where credit is due, Josh Warrington made a certain type of skill, talent go out the window, had trained like a nutter, wanted to win so bad, and he absolutely tore the belt away from Selby.

The judges did a great job of not getting influenced by the crowd, in fact, Selby got a very fair share of rounds, he knew he lost the fight, so I don't think Alan Davis is on the mark scoring him the win, I think 7-5 the other way is fine, there were a lot of close rounds, I had it wider, and some even had it 6 points for Warrington.

Those cuts were nasty, it was all from the head, luckily the blood wasn't running into Selby's eyes, but they still affected Selby to some degree. I think this was winnable for Warrington, and he could land with plenty of leather without making Selby tire, because Selby has always had flaws, he was moving backwards in straight lines, which made it easier for Warrington to attack when he was chasing him.

Where Selby goes from here, I don't know, I don't think a rematch is a good idea, I think because he's the older fighter, and his form isn't as good, he would have a very slim chance of winning, he has achieved a lot in boxing, has a lot to be proud of, but he might retire. Warrington has a belt now, you can question his natural talent, he isn't a great technical fighter, he isn't a big puncher, and he is not a fighter who never gets hit, and I don't think he is the best in his division, but you can't question his desire, his ability to fight 36 minutes, push opponents to the absolute limit, and after this win, you have to say he is a threat to the other champions. I wouldn't mind seeing Warrington vs Frampton, that would be a very, very interesting and entertaining fight, but Warrington also has the option of unifying, although for a few reasons, I think the Frampton fight is more likely, Frampton attending this fight suggests there were serious talks of him fighting the winner, there had been talks of Selby vs Frampton before. Warrington vs Frampton would be brilliant, maybe at Windsor Park.
