British & European Champion Lee Selby made a surprise visit to an unsuspecting group of students from St. Mathias Park Pupil Referral Unit this morning. The students were busy training at one of their weekly education through boxing sessions at Empire Fighting Chance when the champion made his entrance.

Selby who fights in a world title eliminator this Saturday evening (17th May) live on Sky Sports made the time to come and talk to the group of young students who attend Empire every week. He gave the students some advice on fitness training and demonstrated some of his signature silky skills before having photos taken and handing out signed autograph cards.
“It’s great to come and speak with the young people, I was in a position similar to some of these guys when I was young and it is nice to come back and show them that through hard work they can achieve big things.”
