Eddie Hearn, promoter of British welterweight (up to 66.7 kg) Josh Kelly (10-1-1, 6 KO), spoke about the possibility of his rematch with the Russian ex-champion David Avanesyan (27-3-1, 15 KO).
“I believe he wants to do it. In battle, he did not feel well due to the dissection and blood loss, so this should be taken into account.
However, he lost and lost to a stronger fighter in the person of Avanesyan, although the fight turned out to be excellent. And we must give credit to the winner. But Josh is confident and considers himself a world class fighter, and I believe in him, ”said Hearn.
Earlier in an interview, Hearn admitted that he expects Kelly to move to the first middleweight (up to 69.9 kg).
