BoztheMadman Posted May 21, 2018 Share Posted May 21, 2018 It wasn't just the weight making problem. I been saying this for some time: he needs a better trainer. Tony Borg hasn't learned him to throw his punches to the max, to sit on them. Lee got some power obviously, he knocked out Stephen Smith after all. Smith has since not been knocked out and he's had some tough fights against quality opponents. Selby does have the power but he hasn't been trained right. In his last fights, after he became a champion, he was content to just outwork and outbox his opponents. That's because he knew he couldn't stop them-why? Because he doesn't know how. Not because he CAN'T, but because he just hasn't been taught how to do it. In world class fights it's harder to knock out someone than in lower level fights. He did knock down Barros in the last round, so he clearly does have power because Barros is a tough guy who has only been stopped by Mikey Garcia, in 8 rounds. So, that all proves Lee Selby does have the power to stop almost anyone but what he doesn't have is the right trainer to teach him how do throw his punches.
