Our expert panel were given the unenviable task of predicting this weekend’s European welterweight title fight, David Avanesyan v Josh ‘PBK’ Kelly...
The fight to me is a lot closer than when it was first announced I feel like Josh Kelly has grown more, has had a lot of time to make the weight, and correct his mistakes but I’m still gonna go with David Avanesyan but it’ll be a close fight!
Not much of a breakdown as I don’t think it will last too long, I don’t think it will go past 5 maybe 6rounds. I think Avanesyan will start fast but will be very wound up, I think Kelly will catch him with a lot of clean,accurate shots. I think it will turn into an all out war for a few rounds, Kelly will show he’s got balls like King Kong to stand and have it big time and knock Avanesyan out within 6 rounds.
I think David’s experience will be the deciding factor, at some stage Josh will be drawn into a fight that will play into David’s hands.
David by ko mid-late.
I’m predicting a Josh Kelly win on points, I don’t think he’ll have it all his own way but I’m confident he wins a close fight on points.
I think it’s a good fight with two top fighters. One minute I’m thinking Kelly, the next minute I’m thinking Avanesya, I honestly can’t pick! All I know is it’s going to be one hell of a fight, boxer vs fighter!
