BOXING star Andrew Selby has been disqualified from driving for two years following an incident where he failed to give a sample of breath when his vehicle was stopped by police.

The incident happened in Barry just a day after Selby’s shock exit from the Commonwealth Games where he lost his preliminary bout to Scot Reece McFadden.

On Tuesday, August 11, the 25-year-old world number one amateur flyweight pleaded guilty at Cardiff Magistrates’ Court to a charge of being required to provide a specimen of breath for analysis and failing to do so without reasonable excuse.

The offence took place on The Parade in Barry on Saturday, July 26.

Selby was disqualified from driving for two years – with a possible six month reduction following the completion of a course – ordered to carry out 100 hours unpaid work and ordered to pay costs of £85 and a £60 surcharge.
