IBF World Featherweight Champion Lee Selby returns to London on December 9th v Eduardo Ramirez, but has one eye on his mandatory challenger, Josh Warrington.

Speaking exclusively on the brand new BoxNation Podcast, Selby was asked about his Leeds-based rival.

“When [Josh Warrington] first came on the scene he seemed nice and respectful but I think [with] all the smoke being blown up his backside he’s started to believe his own hype. He’s a little big headed!

“As a fighter, you can’t say he’s not good. Because of his achievements he can’t be a bad fighter, but I don’t think he’s a great fighter,” added Selby, who could also face Carl Frampton next year.

“[Frampton would be] a lot tougher than Warrington; he’s an elite fighter, punches very hard. He’s very skillful, it would be a different fight.”

The Welshman also broke down his next opponent, Eduardo Ramirez: “He’s unbeaten but I think this is my fifth unbeaten fighter, there's lots of pressure and he [brings a] southpaw stance [and] I’ve only boxed one or two southpaws as a professional.

“There’s pressure, but it’s just another fight. Hopefully I come through that and I’ve got a massive fight with Josh Warrington in a stadium. I could have two back-to-back with Carl Frampton.”
