A very impressive young boxer from Sundale, England, rising prospect Josh Kelly (8–0–0, 6KO) takes a step up in competition for a challenge in expediting his career to test his abundance of talent by taking on former secondary titlist David Avanesyan (23–3–1, 11KO) in front of a Sheffield arena crowd in Sheffield, England. Kelly 4 weeks ago in his last outing, was dominant with a 1st round technical knockout.
Avanesyan in his previous fight succumbed to the pressure put forth by the man nicknamed & known as the ‘Mean Machine’ Egidijus Kavaliauskas and was knocked out in the 3rd round.
In recent times, Avanesyan has been considered a litmus test for those looking to elevate up to Championship status, or to face more elite opposition in the Welterweight division, so Kelly, taking this fight at Junior-Welterweight, can spearhead his way up in the ranks to more notable fighters, pending a victory.
With Kelly being part of Matchroom Boxing, and Eddie Hearn being his promoter, this fight will be broadcasted on DAZN as part of the undercard to Kell Brook/Michael Zerafa fight.
