The Welshman was deemed not fit enough to fight after a doctor's inspection, although Lindsay will still be in action at the Odyssey Arena according to promoter Eddie Hearn.

Selby would have started as favourite to retain his two titles after scoring impressive stoppage wins in his last three outings, but Lindsay was confident ahead of the bout.

"I've had great preparation and I genuinely feel in the shape of my life," he said in midweek.

It was later confirmed that Lindsay would fight Renald Garrido - originally slated to take on Scott Cardle - in an eight rounder.
