Greek-Australian George Kambosos Jr has beaten Lee Selby impressively in their IBF lightweight world title eliminator at SSE Arena Wembley on Sunday (AEDT).
Kambosos (19-0, 10 KOs) prevailed 118-110 and 116-112 against a bizarre card of 115-114 from judge Phil Edwards in a split decision. The Aussie raised his hands at the final bell, his triumph clear despite fighting Selby (28-3) on his home turf in the UK.
“I told you I’d do it, I’m too fast, too strong, too aggressive, too smart, too powerful – everything,” Kambosos said post-fight on Sky Sports.
“World No.1, mandatory. Lopez, you know what it is now. Let’s do it Down Under. Two warriors, two lions, let’s go to war. Let’s do it – I want that fight.”
