Selby's produces clinical masterclass to defeat Brunker

Print E-mail

Lee Selby will get his shot at the IBF featherweight world title.

The Welshman outclassed Joel Brunker for nine one-sided rounds and can now sit and wait to find out when and who he will be fighting for the title.

The current champion Russia's Evgeny Gradovich defends against Jayson Velez in November but whoever he faces, Selby looked ready for the challenge.

The ninth-round finish was clinical and class and showed that after a quiet start, he is now ready to mix it with the very best in the featherweight world.

It was certainly easier than many expected with the Australian visitor also unbeaten and rumoured to be ready to give Selby his toughest test to date.

A cautious start from the Welshman suggested just that but by the second round he knew he had Brunker's number. A nice left-right combination showed his skills and by the fourth he was picking the Australian at ease.

Selby then threw his jab into play and that kept him not only in front but also in control of what was turning into a fairly routine win. However by the fifth there were signs that Brunker was as tough as many though and soaked up more shots, without effect.

It was by the seventh that Selby was starting to wonder if he could produce the stoppage that people wanted to see and that the rest of the featherweight world champions needed to see.

Well it came after a quiet start to the ninth but as soon as a fierce left hook hammered into the Australian's ribs, it signalled a seriously clinical finish from Selby.

The first shot took his sails away and then he moved in with a left-right-left, not once but twice, then a left to the head that finally left Brunker almost sitting on the bottom rope, barely able to balance, never mind box back.

The referee rightly stepped in and with a record of 20-1 now, Selby could well be Britain's next world champion.

"There still a very, very lot more to come," he told Sky Sports.

"As soon as I can bring my sparring skills in the gym into the ring you will see a true champion, who can mix it with anyone."selby-brunker-featherweight_3215669

Bristol Boxing Gym Gets keys to new home

Print E-mail

Bristol Boxing Gym are celebrating after picking up the keys to our new home. We will move into the former Mill Youth Centre, Easton in January 2015, only 500 yards from our existing gym. Our charity Empire Fighting Chance has received funding of half a million pounds to develop a state of the art facility which will enhance and improve the services we can offer.

The funding will develop the facility into two open plan gym spaces both housing boxing rings. There will also be a stylish mezzanine overlooking the larger gym area to include cardio fitness machines. As well as the two gym spaces there will also be fitness studios and an outdoor basketball court which will allow us to expand our range of exercise classes and provide outdoor circuits as well as our current range of Boxfit/Technique and Novice Sparring sessions.

Our new home will also have brand new male and female changing and shower facilities along with 20 free car parking spaces inside the complex and free outside street parking.

This will also be a fantastic opportunity for our charity Empire Fighting Chance to expand the services which it delivers to young people in Bristol. As well as gym spaces the facility will also have several classrooms, counselling rooms and a conference area. We hope that going forward we can transform the centre into the primary sports social hub in Bristol.

There will be a smooth transition over the Christmas/New Year period while we transfer to the new building so that minimal time is lost for members wishing to use the facilities. This is a great opportunity for us at Bristol Boxing and also for our members we are very excited about the future.

Sanigar Events are proud to present 'Dragon Fire' a night of Championship Boxing on Saturday 24th October at the Merthyr Tydfil Leisure Centre with two Welsh Title fights. 

Dai Davies will make a triumphant return to the ring following his thrilling rematch win over Robbie Turley to retain his Welsh featherweight title at the same venue in back in July. Dai will face off against Chuck Jones in an all Welsh battle for the prestigious featherweight title. Both fighters are renowned for their toughness and this promises to be a fierce battle for the right to call themselves champion of Wales.

Undefeated Craig Kennedy will face renowned puncher Wayne Brooks for the vacant Welsh Cruiserweight Title. Don't blink in this fight with both boxers capable of finishing it at any momnet with one punch. 

Promoter Jamie Sanigar is very excited to be heading back to Wales. "We are pleased to be making a return visit to the Merthyr Tydfil Leisure centre in our third event in the town this year! We always have a fantastic reception from the local crowd and this time will be no different. Dai Davies showed last time what a tough champion he is and there is always fireworks when there is a Welsh title on the line. Kennedy v Brooks is a great fight and one the fans are already talking to me about."

"It is great to be giving Welsh boxers home advantage and the opportunity to showcase in front of their passionate support. It is our intention to continue building the next generation of Welsh prospects to follow in the footsteps of Lee Selby."

The supporting fight card will consist of a host of Welsh talent including an anticipated rematch between Luke Osman (Merthyr) and Jimmy White (Cardiff), Tony Dixon (Mountain Ash), Danni Griffifths (Bridgend), Heavyweight Darren Morgan (Swansea), Lloyd Davies (Tylorstown), Kyle Jones (Pontypridd), Barrie Jones (Ferndale) and debutantes Morgan Jones (Aberdare) and Jamie Evans (Merthyr).
