Jamie Moore: “Warrington ‘will struggle’ to replicate Selby performance against Frampton”

Jamie Moore believes that Josh Warrington will struggle to reproduce his performance when he took Lee Selby’s IBF World Featherweight title in May. Warrington upset the Welshman and he is now the underdog again ahead of his first defence against Frampton on December 22. “I think Lee Selby was probably his big night - I’ve got to be honest,” said Moore. “Was Lee dead at the weight? No. Absolutely not, because he wouldn’t have made it through 12 rounds. I’ve been there. I know what it’s like. Was he tight at the weight? Yes. But, a lot of fighters are tight at the weight. I don’t think you can take away from Josh’s performance by saying Lee was dead at the weight. “I think Josh raised his game. That was the night he looked for in the whole of his boxing life. From being a kid he would have wanted to win a world title and hopefully had it at Elland Road. You can understand how he performed like that. But, Carl Frampton is a different level. To me, he is an elite level fighter.”
