Lee Selby NC

Lee Selby and Josh Warrington weighed in successfully for their IBF featherweight title fight

The defending champion weighed in at 8st 13lb 12oz (125.75lbs) on the scales in front of a hostile crowd in Yorkshire today, holding aloft the famous red belt as he was jeered in Leeds city centre.

Selby campaigned at super-featherweight in the early stages of his career and has been tipped to move back up in weight at some point in his career.

The 31-year-old is carries a big frame for the division and is thought to have a tricky time cutting down to the 126lb featherweight limit, despite never having missed weight.

Fight fans watching the weigh-in on the live stream noticed the Welshman looked a little different than normal on the scales today too.

“He looks dried up.”
