Congratulations to Lee Selby

I WOULD like to congratulate Lee Selby on winning his fight in London on Saturday, October 5.
A huge achievement in only his seventeenth professional fight, winning the coveted Lord Lonsdale Belt outright. Lee joins a select few fighters in doing so, the last Welshman being Floyd Harvard in 1994, almost twenty years ago.
Both Lee and his brother Andrew, the current European Amateur Gold Medallist and AIBA ranked No 1 flyweight in the world, are great ambassadors for the sport, their home town, and Wales. The people of Barry should feel proud to have such talent.
