    Being Irish I prob would be expected to be neutral personally ...except I'm not. I have to say Warrington has come across to me as a right little sh1t! Anybody else feel the same? I'm rooting for "likeable" Lee Selby! In any case I think Lee is better and should win handily.

    Both are huge though. Weight might be an issue, a la Scott Quigg recently.....

    Selby points. I think he will build a big lead on scorecards and will tire in last quarter enabling Warrington to capitalise as far as winning a few late rounds are concerned but don't think his power or lack of it will trouble Selby. Think something like 8-4 in rounds to Selby.

    If Warrington had a punch I might favor him. Selby is 1-2 and steps off. Josh will pressure him and make him work and apply volume but he really needs a dig to get Selby to respect him. I think Selby will win it but he will know he's been in a fight.

    Warrington to win by tko
    Whats he done recently for you to view him as a little sh1t?
    Warrington has no problems with the weight but selby as we know does struggle he will try and make an advantage for himself by boiling down and will roll the dice once again come may 19th. If lee doesnt make weight or fails the rehydration clauses he loses the belt on the scales.
    Im picking warrington to stop selby in the championship rds.
    Whilst neither are one punch k.o artists not many are at 126. Josh has a good stppage record since he moved onto championship fighting, hes stopped 50% of his opponents so imo that does show hes got something and his power has developed as hes gone on.
    Lee is a real good fighter but without going into a real long breakdown, i do think his time is up now.

    I want Selby, watch those Leeds United fans crying and then kicking off.
    They want to turn the atmosphere into a Leeds match, I can't wait to see them silenced.

    We often talk about levels in boxing, can't see anything other than a Selby UD & don't expect Warrington to win more than 2/3 rounds

    Our kid said josh holds his power from round 1 to the end. Tho it's not ko power he hits hard enough and if your not in great shape his work rate increases. Weight making cud b crucial in this fight.
    I'm going Warrington close points.

    I would suggest that joshs power has got a bit more to it as well, since he fought ur cuz. That was a great fight and was one josh always says was his toughest.
    I think joshs team understand all about lees issues with the weight and will be employing a strategy to make that work for them.

    Selby, maybe a late stoppage after a brave performance from Warrington, most likely a pts win though.

    Selby UD. I can see Warrington winning 2 or 3 rounds, and it being closer on the cards with the home town advantage, but I think Selby is a level above.

    You perceive this from two sentences?
    I just watch the crowds for Warrington fights, and see that they try to turn it into an Elland Road atmosphere, and not liking Leeds United, I would be happy to hear it silenced, nothing loutish, I didn't say I would like to see them beaten or a riot, but I suspect they would like that.
