Selby told Boxing News Online:
“Winning the British title in my first year as a pro was a great start, now with the other British fighters like Butcher, Edwards and Satchell all pulling out to box me I want to push towards European and world titles. That starts on October 21 in Edinburgh and I can’t wait to perform in front of the passionate Scottish fans.”
His opponent is highly ranked in his home country of Nicaragua, but will definitely be hoping to cause a significant upset, claiming he will Knock out Selby. Castillo commented to Boxing News Online:
“I am travelling to Scotland to cause a big upset, I will knockout Selby on October 21 and it will be beautiful,” said Castillo. “He [Selby] is highly regarded in the UK but the standard at our weight is poor in Europe and I will show him what it feels like to fight a real flyweight.”
The fight is being put on Barry McGuigans Cyclone Promotions and will be screened live on Channel 5.
