Barry boxer set for world title eliminator

Barry’s highly-rated flyweight contender Andrew Selby will headline against Mexico’s hard-hitting Maximino Flores in a WBC World Flyweight Eliminator on Saturday October 7 at York Hall.

The title-chasing pair will square off at the top of an action-packed bill, which will be shown live on Channel 5.

Flores, who made his professional debut in March 2010 has 23 wins, three defeats and a draw to his name.

The fight will see Selby face only his 10th fight in the paid ranks, after already claiming the British, IBF Inter-Continental and WBC International titles.

Andrew Selby said “This is another step closer to my dream of winning a world title. Maximino Flores is another strong test for me but these are the fights I need to prove myself ready for that World title shot. Training has been going well alongside my brother Lee at Tony Borg’s gym and I can’t wait to headline back on Channel 5. I’m looking forward to boxing for the first time as a pro at the famous York Hall. The venue was good to me as an amateur in the World Series of Boxing where I won all of my four fights over Ireland’s Michael Conlan plus elite boxers from Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Mexico. That experience will ensure I’m ready to put on a show come October 7th.”

Tickets for the fight are on sale now priced at £40 unreserved and £100 VIP from or on 0844 357 2887
