Josh Kelly who is only 24 years old is a British boxer from Sunderland UK. Kelly competed at the Rio 2016 Olympics in the men’s welterweight category. After his amateur career, he signed with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing.
Kelly made his debut last year at SSE Arena in Glasgow as part of the Ricky Burns-Julius Indongo’s world title unification clash. After that, he fought four times before the end of 2017 all wins were by the way of knockouts. In his last fight on March, he outclassed veteran Carlos Molina to record his sixth professional win.
Kelly is scheduled to fight Kris George (14-1,8) of Australia this coming June 16 at Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle, Tyne and Wear, United Kingdom.
Josh Kelly is one of Britain’s most exciting prospect. His style is being compared to Vasyl Lomachenko and Floyd Mayweather Jr.
