Lee Selby has warned “I’ve got enough to beat anybody” if a dream fight with Vasiliy Lomachenko materializes.

Selby will fight on May 9 against George Kambosos JR in an eliminator for the IBF lightweight title.

That would be a massive fight,” Selby said about challenging the winner of Lopez vs Lomachenko. “I know I’d be a big underdog against each of those fighters. I believe I’ve got enough to beat anybody. If I box to the best of my ability on the night, I can beat them.”

Former world featherweight champion Selby must first get past Australia’s Kambosos Jr.

“I’ve got a tough task ahead against an unbeaten boxer. He can punch, he can box, he’s a pressure fighter. I shared the ring with Kambosos Jr at the Wild Card gym in Los Angeles where we sparred a few rounds. He’s a good fighter but in those couple of rounds, I took enough from it to know what I’ve got to do to beat him. One thing I have over Kambosos Jr is experience. He’s had 18 fights but I’ve had 18 title fights. I have a wealth of experience.”
