Lee Selby Moves To Super-Featherweight, Given High World Ranking

The WBC have installed Lee Selby in lofty position upon his entry to super-featherweight.

By Aaron Cooper   - @intuboxingfm

Former IBF featherweight champion of the world, Lee Selby has been installed at #8 in the WBC super-featherweight rankings.

Selby lost his IBF title in what was the sixth defence of his world title reign against Josh Warrington at Elland Road, Leeds on the 19th May. Selby was outworked throughout the majority of the fight, struggling with the pressure the hometown man applied from bell to bell. The judges returned scores of 115-113 & 116-112 for Warrington before a third judge returned a head-scratching 115-113 in favour of The ‘Welsh Mayweather’.

One thing is for certain, and that is Selby looked a shell of his usual self. Gone was the lightning hand speed, quick combinations and fancy footwork that we are used to seeing in the man from Barry, Wales. Instead, Selby abandoned any lateral movement, which played a massive part in Warrington’s success as Selby plodded forward and back in straight lines. Allowing the incoming champion to counter at will.

No sooner had the final bell rang did Selby announce his intention to move up to super-featherweight in a bid to become a two-weight world champion. It’s not new news that Selby struggled to make the 126-pound limit, he always has done. But that being said, he has never missed weight. But it was quite apparent that the camp against Warrington was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Selby looked gaunt on the scales, and far from himself on fight night.

So where does he go from here? Selby leaves behind one of the most competitive divisions in the world of boxing, for an equally stacked division in the world of boxing. Miguel Berchelt champions the WBC at the 130-pound limit, with Miguel Roman, Francisco Vargas, Jezreel Corrales AND Jhonny Gonzales in front of him. Believe me when I say that, that is a gauntlet of talent that could break the heart of any pugilist. The IBF title is being contested by Billy Dib and Tevin Farmer and the WBA is championed by ‘Regular’ champion, Alberto Machado and ‘Super’ champion, Gervonta Davis …. Can you see where I am going with this?

Perhaps his best shot at a quick return to the world title picture is the WBO title which remains vacant. But promoter, Frank Warren would have to work some serious magic to get his charge in that particular mix.

On his day, Selby is an elite level talent, after all, he isn’t called the ‘Welsh Mayweather’ for nothing.

IntuBoxing wishes him well!
