Selby believes Frampton fight would be easy to make

Lee Selby claims he is happy to fight Carl Frampton and believes the clash is easy to make.

The IBF featherweight World champion, who holds a win over Martin Lindsay, has been the latest name linked to ‘The Jackal’ and the Welsh fighter says he is open to the fight.

Selby must first over come Eric Hunter this weekend in the O2 Arena and it seems certain Frampton will defend against Shingo Wake or move up to fight Leo Santa Cruz in the Summer.

However, postive talks re a fight down the line have taken place and Selby certainly wants the clash.

“Currently my full concentration is on Eric Hunter, my mandatory challenger. He is a great fighter and I am up against it,” Selby told BBC.

“But as long as I come through the fight, I am happy to fight Frampton. My options are open. Leo Santa Cruz has called me out as well, I am in a great position at the moment.

“It would be nice to get one of those two fighters over to the Principality Stadium; that would be ideal.”

“All three of us are represented by Al Haymon so it should mean making the fights is a lot easier. It should be pretty simple.”
