IBF featherweight world champion Lee Selby insists he is ready to take on Carl Frampton in his next bout after he beat Jonathan Victor Barros on Saturday night.

The Welshman produced arguably the best performance of his career to outclass Barros, just four days after his mother passed away.

The 30-year-old was chief support for Chris Eubank Jr as he beat Arthur Abraham but Selby now has big plans of his own after a stunning display.

He had to battle on with a serious cut to his right eye but he was able to show his vast array of skills as he sent Barrows to the canvas.

The Argentine eventually got up to lose on points but Selby is now looking to take on former WBA super featherweight champion Frampton.

Frampton is preparing for his next fight against Andres Gutierrez after losing to Leo Santa Cruz, and Selby is ready to go toe-to-toe.

He told ITV: “I got the win, and I dedicate it to my mother.

“I told my team not to mention anything, turned my phone off, there were emotions going through me before the fight.

I’m a fighter and whatever happens I’ll still fight. “Nothing in the ring fazes me.

It’s a fight. You’re supposed to get cut, and I’ve got the best cuts man in the business, Chris Sanigar.

“He (Frampton) probably fancies it now, it’s a fight I’d love, and all the British fans will love.”
