Ilnytskyy is poor, and Solonenko is 0-2 in WSB. (but 1-0 as a pro...)
Joyce just beat Hrgovic and is a top proven SHW.

Yeah but Hrgovic is very good, whereas Usyk is great.

Round 1

Ilnytskyy is tossing high meandering jabs out of a turtle shell. The taller Selby circles smoothly and swipes down with short bursts. Ilnytskyy keeps reaching upward with the jab and getting countered with twos and threes. Longer combos by Selby in the final minute, bending over at the waist and dropping in triplets to the midsection. BIG wide right hand by Ilnytskyy, and Selby leans back with a slick move to dodge it.

10-9 Selby

Against a proper top class 'super hw' in Joyce maybe for the first time tonight though.

This is the best card of boxing of the year so far. Some tremendous fighters on display who really deserve to be exposed to a bigger audience. This will certainly aid their develop though.

Round 2

Ilnytskyy is winging in haymakers with the right and swarming Selby. Slick dodging by Selby, dancing circles around Ilnytskyy. Annoyed, Ilnytskyy grabs him and hip tosses him to the canvas. Ilnytskyy pours it on and catches Selby with several hard shots uncorked to the face. Selby is trapped in a corner, getting pasted! Selby shows he isn't hurt by putting both hands behind his back and sidestepping from the ropes with his chin jutting out! Idiotic, even if Ilnytskyy is feather fisted. Body shots by Ilnytskyy as Selby dances around tossing pot shot counters, including a stunning left hook. Long reaching right to the body by Ilnytskyy.

10-9 Selby, though I almost said **** him and gave it to Ilnytskyy.

20-18 Selby

Selby may have injured his shoulder.

Selby needs to calm down the showboating. It's gotten a bit disrespectful.

...and potentially counterproductive. He already gave away a round on one card with that tomfoolery.
