Welshman defends British and Commonwealth featherweight titles
Lee Selby became the first man to stop John Simpson, winning their featherweight clash with a 5th round TKO
Lee Selby made a successful defence of his British and Commonwealth featherweight titles against John Simpson at York Hall on Wednesday night.
The Welshman became the first fighter to stop Simpson when Selby knocked him down in round five and the Scot did not beat referee Marcus McDonnell's count.
Selby knocks out Simpson inside five rounds to retain featherweight belts
Barry's Lee Selby retained his British and Commonwealth featherweight titles with a fifth round stoppage of Greenock's John Simpson at the York Hall in Bethnal Green.
Selby, who had won the titles by knocking out Stephen Smith three months ago, continued his stunning form by handing veteran Simpson the first inside-the-distance defeat of his career.
Main man: Lee Selby retained his British and Commonwealth titles
A left hook to the body from Selby was enough to leave Simpson down and out and cap a superb year for the Welshman, whose younger brother Andrew has qualified to represent Great Britain at the London Olympics.
