LEE SELBY’s loss to George Kambosos Jr was marred by wacky scenes after a two-minute round error

The Welshman was boxing his Australian opponent on the sub-map of Dereck Chisora’s clash with Oleksandr Usyk when the blunder occurred

Selby lost the fight via a controversial split decision – 118-110 Kambosos, 115-114 Selby and 116-112 Kambosos – the Welshman looking shocked he lost

Sky Sports Box Office viewers were baffled and furious at the error on such a prestigious pay-per-view TV show

The two-minute round is believed to have occurred because there had been two female fights on the map before

Women fighters face off for a minute less than their counterparts, including Savannah Marshall’s world title win over Hannah Rankin

But a spectator fumed: “So the eighth round was only two minutes long. How is this stuff going in boxing these days?”

One of them said: “The timekeeper who has had a lot of women’s fights tonight thinks it’s two-minute rounds”

The Australian is now mandatory for Teofimo Lopez’s IBF world title, and could face him next year

He said after the fight at Wembley Arena: “Let’s go, two lions, let’s go to war”
