IBF featherweight champion Lee Selby 23-1 (8ko’s) was scheduled to fight former world champion Jonathan Victor Barros 41-4-1 (22ko’s) in another defence of his title.
We have just seen live from the weigh in as Selby comes to the stage to explain his fight will not be going ahead as Barros has failed to comply with the Nevada athletic state commissioners ruling and the fight will be pulled from the card.
You have to feel sorry for Selby after putting in all the hours at camp and having the opportunity to fight at the MGM Grand. It’s also a shame for all the fans that paid good money to see the fight however Selby has promised he will be back and is deeply apologetic.
It’s unaware what exactly the problem is with Barros however all that has been revealed so far is that the fight will definitely not be going ahead!
