We are happy to announce that United Worldwide Logistics are proud sponsors of rising star and local boxing talent Andrew Selby from Barry South Wales. As we love to invest in local business’s and people this was a perfect opportunity to do so and help a local talent reach his full potential.
Barry, Wales native Andrew ‘AC Superstar’ Selby has made an impressive impact since turning pro last year. Former world number one ranked amateur Selby has already picked up the vacant British flyweight crown earlier this year when comprehensively beat Leicestershire’s Louis Norman by a wide points decision at Cardiff’s Ice Arena Wales.
The super talented Selby, 6–0 (4), has taken to the pro game like a duck to water but on November 18 at the SSE Arena, Wembley he faces by far his toughest test to date as a professional when he takes on the Philippines Jake Bornea for the vacant IBF Inter Continental flyweight title. This clash of top prospects will act as the support bout George Groves’ WBA International super middleweight title defence against Germany’s two-time world title challenger Eduard Gutknecht.
Currently ranked number 15 with the WBO, Jake ‘D-Twins’ Bornea comes from a fighting family, with his brother Jade also a prospect back in their native Philippines. The twenty-one year old Bornea hails from General Santos City, also the home of superstar Manny Pacquiao. Like the ‘Pacman’, Bornea wants to go on to become world flyweight champion and if he is to achieve this goal he must surely beat the undefeated Selby on November 18.
“If Selby is as good as I think he could be, he’ll be fighting for a world title before 10 fights,”
“That’s how good he is. I really think Andrew Selby is one of the most talented kids in the world.”
