Boxing news roundup…..

Here’s the latest news on whats happening in the boxing world……


  • Lee Selby has said that after he defends his IBF featherweight belt against Josh Warrington, he’s targeting a showdown with Carl Frampton

“Let’s see what Josh is made of. He’s done everything asked of him so far. He’s picked up my vacated titles and beat a lot of past opponents. To his credit, he’s earned his position as my mandatory and deserves his shot but I’ll pick him off like I’ve done with numerous past opponents. If he opts to box on the back foot I definitely can’t see him outboxing me. There’s no way I can see him beating me.

“If I beat Frampton then the world is my oyster. This is a huge year for me and by the end of it I’ll prove to everyone that I’m the number one featherweight in the UK.”

  • Former pound for pound king Andre Ward has hinted on Twitter that a possible comeback could be on the cards, maybe at a higher weight class –

“Weighed in last night at 199 lbs. All muscle I promise!! I been working.”

Ward then went on to say –  “We’re working on something special.”

Could a move to cruiser be on the cards, or even a possible jump to heavyweight? Ward has previously said that he would be willing to take on Anthony Joshua and would be confident of the win. Hopefully all will be revealed soon on this one…

  • WBC Heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder says that despite Luis Ortiz’s reputation he will face the same fate as his previous opponents on March 3rd –

“Luis Ortiz is one of the toughest guys around and he’s supposed to be the boogeyman in the heavyweight division. But I’ve never been afraid of the boogeyman and I’ve knocked out every opponent that I’ve faced. I plan on keeping that streak going. Everyone standing in my way of becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion has to go down. It’s Luis Ortiz’s turn.”
