Josh Kelly is a special talent

One of Britain's highest prospect ready for more

By Bryan Connolly   - @intuboxing

Last night the impressive welterweight from Sunderland Josh Kelly destroyed Walter Castillo in a magnificent opening 2 and half minutes. There was a massive gulf in class but the sharpness and ruthlessness Kelly showed proves he is destined for a big future.

Speaking to a few people from the United States after the show, they are expecting big things in the welterweight division. 

In the post fight interview Eddie Hearn has revealed that next up for Kelly is the former interim WBA world title holder David Avanesyan. He beat Charlie Navarro for that honour and then beat Shane Mosley.

It will be a step up for the Sunderland man and its the next step he deserves.
