Hearn Claims Kelly Will Fight In US
Following his seventh round win over Kris George, Eddie Hearn believes Josh Kelly has a “massive future” ahead of him.
With Matchroom Boxing’s portfolio expanding in the United States, Hearn is looking to give Kelly a chance to showcase his skills in the United States.
“He’s just won the Commonwealth title easily, without getting into second gear, so how many levels does Adam want to move to next? I would like to take him to America, and box him over there,” Hearn said following Saturday’s win.
“Obviously it’s been a wonderful night here in Newcastle. Brilliant to come back to the north east, and he’s part of that as well. Massive future.
“But just seven fights in, already ranked, and I think he’s going to be needed to be tested and tested, and that’s where you’re going to see the true class of Josh Kelly come out.”
