ANDREW Selby has revealed he plans to follow in his brother’s footsteps by winning a world title and then stepping up in weight in search of further major honours.

In fact, the St Joseph’s star, one win away from fighting for the WBC world flyweight crown, is targeting future success at super-flyweight and bantamweight.

The 30-year-old can set himself up for a shot at the World Boxing Council’s 112lb strap tomorrow night when he faces Julio Cesar Martinez Aguilar in a final eliminator in Metepec, Mexico.

Englishman Charlie Edwards, the current champion, also fights on Saturday night, defending his belt against Spaniard Angel Moreno at London’s Copper Box Arena.

More than 5,500 miles away – and at 8,600 feet above sea level – Tony Borg-trained Selby will be aiming to get the job done in Aguilar’s back yard, 30 miles west of Mexico City.

As the away fighter, unbeaten Selby (11-0) knows he needs to win convincingly, either inside the distance or on points, if he is to take another giant step towards world glory.

“There’s just one more hurdle in the way of me getting that world title fight,” he said.

“It would have been nice if it was in Newport, but it’s a job and I’ve got to go out, beat him and look forward to a world title shot.

“I’ve watched him (Aguilar) and he’s a strong, come-forward fighter, a typical Mexican, really tough and likes going toe-to-toe.

“Because it’s in Mexico, I’ll probably have to beat him convincingly and go for the stoppage if the opportunity is there.

“I believe I’m the better fighter, the best at my weight, and I have been for a while.”

He added: “My plan is to win a world title at flyweight, probably vacate straight away, move up to super-flyweight and finish at bantamweight.”

Selby’s older brother Lee, 32, won his first fight at lightweight last month after moving up from featherweight following the loss of his IBF world title to Josh Warrington.

Last month there was talk of Andrew defending his British title, which he won way back in May 2016, against Swansea’s Jay Harris.

With Selby getting his chance in Mexico that wasn’t likely to materialise, but the Barry stylist says there is a possibility of that contest happening in the future.

“If I win in Mexico there’s more chance of me vacating the British,” he said.

“If I lose in Mexico then there’s no way I’m going to vacate.

“If no-one fights you for your British title in three years you get to keep the belt.

“And it won’t be too long before it’s three years since I won it, so I get to hold on to it for a bit longer.”

As for trainer Borg, he firmly believes his man will prevail tonight.

He said: “All Mexicans are tough, and he’s decent at what he does, but I don’t see anything there that’s really outstanding.

“He’s heavy-handed and will obviously have home advantage and be up for it, but Andrew at his best is one of the best fighters in the world.

“We’ve just got to get him right, keep him focused and he’ll be world champion by the end of the year.”

Aguilar, 24, boasts a record of 13 victories and only one defeat from 14 outings in the paid code.

Ten of those wins have come inside the distance and his only loss came when making his pro debut in October 2015.

His last contest was at the end of January, a first-round stoppage of fellow Mexican Irvin Ordaz one day before his 24th birthday.
