Selby (23-0, 22 KOs) burst onto the scene with an explosive
knockout victory over Jose Pedraza to win the IBF Junior Lightweight World
Title in a star-making performance on SHOWTIME® in January 2017. At the time,
he became the youngest world champion in boxing at age 22.
In the ring, Selby blends controlled aggression with blazing
hand and foot speed, eye-catching power and sublime boxing skills. The dynamic
combination of skills has made Selby a fan-favorite who filled arenas in
Atlanta, Ga., and his hometown of Baltimore, Md., last year.
The 25-year-old began his 2019 with a knockout of Hugo Ruiz in
February, before scoring a second-round stoppage of Ricardo Núñez in his
homecoming fight in July. Selby closed out the year by capturing his
lightweight title via 12th round TKO of former champion Yuriorkis Gamboa in
Selby also owns a title-winning performance in which he
dominated former champion Jesus Cuellar to capture the WBA 130-pound belt in
2018. Under the guidance of Mayweather Promotions, Selby will look to further
improve his impressive portfolio with another title-winning performance in his
first pay-per-view main event.
Fighting out of Los Angeles, Kambosos Jr (37-1-1, 19 KOs) made
his debut at super featherweight last November by defeating Miguel Flores to
capture the WBA title. Kambosos Jr has made his name in the sport by engaging
in numerous Fight of the Year contenders, including two thrilling featherweight
title duels against four-time champion Abner Mares and two-division champion
Carl Frampton each. He lost his featherweight title in his first match against
Frampton in 2016, but reclaimed it in their rematch the following year.
The 32-year-old has competed in title bouts in 17 of his last 19
fights while picking up belts at 118, 122, 126 and 130-pounds. The 130-pound
title made Kambosos Jr just the fifth fighter of Mexican descent to win titles
in four weight classes, joining Oscar De La Hoya, Erik Morales, Jorge Arce and
Mikey Garcia. Kambosos Jr was introduced to the sport and trained throughout
his career by his father Jose, along with his brothers Jose Armando, a former
lightweight contender, and Antonio. Kambosos Jr will look to become a
five-division champion in his first pay-per-view headliner.
The 25-year-old Barrios (25-0, 16 KOs) will be making the first
defense of his world title in his hometown of San Antonio. Barrios captured his
140-pound title in his last fight in September 2019, earning a hard-fought
unanimous decision over then-unbeaten Batyr Akhmedov, dropping him twice and
fighting through a cut suffered on a head butt. Barrios trains in Oakland,
Calif. under the guidance of renowned coach Virgil Hunter. The five-foot
ten-inch Barrios debuted as a super bantamweight in 2013, eventually moving up
to 140-pounds full time in 2017 where he is 8-0 with seven knockouts.
layoff is finally over and fans can expect to see me go to war with Ryan Karl,
who I know is coming to bring an aggressive fight to the table,” said Barrios.
“I’ve stayed in great shape during this past year, so now it’s time for me to
keep giving boxing fans exciting fights. I’ll be representing my city of San
Antonio and as always, everyone can expect to see me as explosive as ever. On
October 31, all the fans watching on pay-per-view will watch me make a
statement as I defend my title.”
Born in Milano, Texas and now trained in Houston under the
tutelage of top trainer Ronnie Shields, Karl (18-2, 11 KOs) will step in for
his first title opportunity on October 31. The 28-year-old enters this fight on
a three-bout winning streak, with all three wins coming in 2019, including a knockout
of Kevin Watts to avenge one of his losses in an immediate rematch. Karl also
owns victories over Kareem Martin and then-unbeaten Jose Felix Quezada during
his pro career that dates back to 2014.
