BREAKING: SELBY-LINDSAY OFF
Lee Selby’s British and Commonwealth featherweight title defence against Martin Lindsay at the Odyssey Arena tonight (September 22) has been cancelled after Selby was taken ill in Belfast. Selby was taken ill overnight and saw the doctor again this morning and was deemed unfit to box this evening. A source close to Selby revealed to BoxingWales.com that he’s been suffering from severe illness all week, he was determined to fight despite team and family members attempting to persuade him against it but this morning the doctor took the decision out of Selby’s hands. Lindsay will still box tonight and his opponent will be named shortly.
