2 Star RatingReview by AllTheBestFights.com: 2016-04-09, good first part of the fight but then both boxers initiate clinches and the bout becomes pretty boring: Lee Selby vs Eric Hunter gets two stars.

The Ibf champion Lee Selby entered this fight with a boxing record of 22-1-0 (8 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.2 featherweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Leo Santa Cruz). He fought twice last year beating Evgeny Gradovich (=Gradovich vs Selby) and Fernando Montiel (=Selby vs Montiel).
His opponent, Eric Hunter, has an official record of 21-3-0 (11 knockouts) and he entered as the No.11 in the same weight class. He suffered his last loss when he faced Mike Oliver in 2013, since then he has won five bouts defeating Antonio Escalante in his last one (=Hunter vs Escalante). Selby vs Hunter is valid for the IBF World featherweight title (Selby’s second defense); undercard of Anthony Joshua vs Charles Martin. Watch the video and rate this fight!

    I really disliked the profound BS spewed by the English commentators when they said Hunter was lazy, bad attitude, etc. Hunter was quick to congratulate Shelby after the fight, conceding the victory to him before the scores were announced. I’d like to see them both again, maybe not particularly against each other, but Hunter could fight a tough contender and Selby fight against the top.

      Very poor job by the ref. Clearly had a biais… Both times Hunter loss a point for low blow, these were on the belt. I would love to see a rematch, because the fight started off really well, but I felt like they lost their tempo with all these stoppages and warnings…
