Selby Buoyed by Mayweather training sessions

Posted on by Grant Miller

Welsh Commonwealth Super-Featherweight Lee Selby has had his preparation lifted with training sessions along side pound for pound great Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas ahead of his defence  of his title on May 25th against Patrick Okine at the Newport Sports Centre.

Selby also witnessed first hand Mayweather’s preparation for Miguel Cotto for this Saturday’s mega fight.

Selby said “It was a fantastic trip and well worth it to be in the same gym as the number one boxer in the world,” said the 25-year-old who created a huge upset last September when he beat Stephen Smith.

“I worked a lot with Floyd’s uncle and trainer Roger Mayweather on the pads and he showed me plenty of new things as well as getting plenty of world class sparring with guys in the gym like unbeaten Australian featherweight Joel Brunker who’s number three in the world”

Fight fans will also be pleased to hear that both fights are to be televised live on BoxNation Sky ch456 and Virgin ch546.

Daily Sport says – Selby should come though this one with ease on the night impressing home support.
