British welterweight fighter (up to 66.7 kg) Josh Kelly (10-1-1, 6 KO) reached out to fans on social media after an early defeat to Russian ex-champion David Avanesyan (27-3-1, 15 KO).
“First of all, I would like to say thank you to the Almighty for my and David’s return home to our families. The support I received after the fight is amazing.
When there are setbacks in your life that you go through, it becomes clear who you are and who really supports you. My hometown stayed with me, and I am glad that I was born in it.
On Saturday I gave my all, and this is another experience I got along the way, even though I was beaten by the best guy. It is what it is, ”wrote Kelly on his Instagram.
