Lee Selby to face Josh Warrington for IBF featherweight title in May

Lee Selby will defend his IBF world featherweight title against Josh Warrington on 19 May.

The fight will take place in Warrington's home city of Leeds, as part of what has been a heated rivalry between the pair.

"The plan is to beat Warrington and then go over to Belfast and beat Carl Frampton," Selby told BBC Sport Wales.

"He's got emotionally attached to me. I will give him an educated boxing lesson... and then move on."

Warrington said he is looking forward to ending opinions that Selby, 30, is the best featherweight in the country.

The 27-year-old said: "For the past three or four years our names have always been mentioned together.

"He's always been that one step ahead of me and everyone has always looked at him as the number one featherweight in the UK, but that will change on 19 May."

Warrington is undefeated in 26 fights, while Selby has 26 wins and one defeat on his record.

The bout will be Selby's fifth defence of the world title he claimed in 2015.
