Professional Boxing At York Hall - Selby vs Simpson New kids on the block, Francis and George Warren, have pulled out all the stops to ensure that their 14th December Queensberry promotions event, at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London - and broadcast live on BoxNation (Sky platform ch. 456) - is a fitting finale to a rather excellent year of British Boxing. Headlining the event Francis and George have Lee Selby defending his British and Commonwealth Featherweight titles against former champ John Simpson, who has held both straps at various times throughout his illustrious career. Selby sensationally stopped Liverpool's previously unbeaten Stephen Smith to lift the belts on only his eleventh pro outing back in September. Selby, 24, was unfancied against the champion, especially as was on Smith's home turf, however the young Welshman dominated the centre of the ring throughout, before letting rip with a left-handed counter to send Smith crashing to the canvas, out cold, on the two minute mark of the eighth round. Stephen Smith is the common denominator in this intriguing match-up, as it was the Liverpudlian that took, on separate occasions, both the British and Commonwealth straps from Simpson. Simpson's first encounter, in September 2010, with the younger brother of then British Super Middleweight Champion Paul Smith see him relinquish his Commonwealth belt after a storming twelve round war. Three months later Simpson beat Martin Lindsay to lift the Lonsdale belt, which ultimately set up a return match with Smith in April this year. Yet another close all out war ensued, after which Simpson was again relieved of his coveted belt by the Liverpudlian You can bet that just as Simpson will be going all out to regain the British and Commonwealth straps, young Selby will be equally determined to hold on to the hard earned titles. It's fairly hard fight to call and has all the makings of a classic. My feelings are the early rounds will be a bit of a chess match, with Simpson keeping it long and working behind his excellent jab, whilst Selby will be looking to counter at every opportunity. As the fight progresses it is likely to liven right up, Simpson will be looking to box and Selby countering in fine style before letting off big bombs at every opportunity. Heading up the support the Warren brothers have Steve O'Meara defending his recently won Southern Area Light Middleweight title, against upcoming TRAD TKO star Nathan 'Sugar' Weise Back in September O'Meara sensationally knocked out defending champ, and local rival, Ryan Toms with a stunning pin point accurate left hook to the chin in the dying seconds of the first round. Whilst not known as a concussive puncher O'Meara sure made a point with that stunning shot. As such Weise will need to ensure that their defense is up to scratch, something I'm sure trainer Mark Tibbs and manager Johnny Eames are already working on. Weise is a stylish purist, right out of the 'Sugar' Ray Leonard mould, his sublime movement and fluid combinations make him a real handful for any opponent. In his last bout Weise had a six round war with former Champ Toms and if it wasn't for a visit the canvas, in the third, was on course for another fairly comfortable win, however due to him taking the count instead had to settle 57-57 draw. The clash of styles, between O'Meara and Weise, makes this a very interesting match up. It's a hard one to call but one thing is for sure, it will be an all action thriller. In addition to O'Meara-Weise Francis and George have put together an excellent undercard, featuring undefeated young prospects such as Slough teen sensation George Michael Carman, Cranham's Lee Markham as well as a pair of Nathan Weise's TRAD TKO gym mates, Canning Town's Freddie Turner and Dagenham's Ediz Hussein. Francis and George Warren's Queensberry promotion event, headlined by the British and Commonwealth Featherweight title clash between Lee Selby and John Simpson. takes place at the York hall in Bethnal Green, and broadcast live on BoxNation (Sky Platform Ch. 456), on Wednesday the 14th December 2011.
