Selby's title defence is off

The Barry boxer's IBF featherweight title fight against Jonathan Barros on Saturday night has been called off. The fight was due to take place in Las Vagas but the Nevada Athletic Commission has said that the Selby's Argentine opponent doesn't meet its requirements.

The 29-year-old was booked in on the undercard of Carl Frampton's WBA featherweight title clash with Leo Santa Cruz, with Selby eyeing up a bout with the winner if he did the business against Barros.
