ST JOSEPH'S star Lee Selby stopped Rendall Munroe to add the vacant European featherweight title to his British crown at Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena.

The 26-year-old Barry boxer, who trains at St Joes in Newport with Tony Borg, had far too much for veteran former world title challenger Munroe.

After dominating the early rounds Selby pegged his 33-year-old opponent in the corner in round six and referee Ian John Lewis stepped in after one minute and 31 seconds when he judged that Munroe was in no position to continue.
