    Going ahead it seems, matchroom promoting the show so either won the purse bids or a deal was agreed.

    Don't think this is right for Kelly. I think they should have come out and said he’s not quite ready yet and fought somebody on the level of Lejarraga for example.

    On another note though, hopefully the UK bookies make Kelly favourite.

    Didn't think Kelly would take this fight, so credit to him if he does. Avenesyan will beat him though IMO.

    Time to sink or swim. If he comes through this then he’s a star in the making. However i don’t fancy his chances of whatsoever.

    As people say, sink or swim time. Kavaliauskas is almost a contender in terms of levels. Kavaliauskas did a number on him so if Kelly has realistic world level ambitions he needs to be doing similar

    They thought he was ready for this the first time it was arranged. If kelly is as good as we have been told, then this could be the start of something.

    Personally I think his poor defence and lack of power will be his undoing. I think this fight is a tough one to call.

    I'm glad he's taking a step up but I do fear for him, Avanesyan looked hot a few weeks back.

    Unless kelly can start hitting like a mule he loses this, David is all wrong for him.

    maybe they think they can run to a ud

    I’m guessing the monster show is this, Usyk v Chisora and Okolie vs Glowacki.

    yes but if you believe David AVs manager he said there was clauses they put in the contract which he never seen before and just wanted a fair fight. I wonder if booth put some clauses in like bigger ring, weight restrictions limits etc etc

    Booth mentioned in an ifl interview that as long as David agrees to the drug testing, they obviously think he’s up to no good

    interested to see if this fight actually goes ahead again

    I think that was just setting up a reason to avoid it. It's all politics but if love to see what those 'strange' clauses are.
