ANDREW Selby’s trainer Tony Borg has underlined just how important it is that the Welshman shines at London's York Hall tonight, writes David Williams.

St Joseph’s star Selby puts his unbeaten record on the line in a WBC world flyweight title eliminator against Mexican Maximino Flores.

Borg, who also coaches Selby’s older brother Lee, the IBF world featherweight champion, would love to see both siblings hold global titles.

And he has urged the younger of the two to make the most of his chance in Bethnal Green, as Selby faces a man with 23 wins from 27 bouts in the paid ranks.

“Everyone wants to have that world title fight,” said Borg. “We look at who the world champions are, everyone does that, but the next fight is the most important of his life.

“It’s a proper fight, a proper test, and it’s an eliminator for the world title so it’s massive for both of them.

“And if Andrew doesn’t beat him and look good doing it then the big fights aren’t going to come.”

He added: “Andrew just wants a good test and then he can shine, and he always goes in to entertain and put on a show.

“They could have easily got him someone who would last three or four rounds, but that does him no good, physically and mentally.”

Borg expects current WBC champion Daigo Higa to be watching tonight, with the winner on course to face the Japanese fighter, who defends his crown later this month.

Summing up what it would mean to train two world champions, Borg said: “To have two world champions from a town like Barry, training in a gym in Newport, would be amazing – and they are brothers.”
