    Not seen Kelly since the Ava fight it’ll be interesting to see if he’s reigned in the flashy stuff..he looks better at this weight for sure.

    He isn't wasting as much energy at the moment that's for sure. Wonder if he will as he gains more confidence.

    I think Bastida will struggle with the speed but I also think he's trying to get Kelly to unload a lot, to take the sting out of his punches and then put it on 2nd half of the fight.

    He's got to make Kelly work though and Kelly isn't boiling down to 147 now...

    Bastida has one of the worse right hands I've seen, overhand right looks terrible.

    Still fights like a twat. Needs to ditch that stupid stance.

    Kelly under a bit of pressure now.

    Has learned to hold and spoil at least, he still LOOKS vulnerable, even at this level when under pressure. Like he doesn't quite know what to do, not using jab as soon as he gets backed up.

    He's looking a bit brittle...as in back to type again. Sort of reminds me of a smaller David Price, when gassed/under pressure.

    Needs to get rid of Adam Booth who’s been crap for years.

    4-1 Kelly, but it's quite obvious he's clueless on the backfoot. He's fighting at his pace but I don't think he can sustain output when under pressure.

    Certainly his jab goes to pot when it happens.

    Kelly fights like a man who has huge one punch power and is looking for one big shot but he doesn’t have said power so it’s pointless.

    Kelly gone back to dropping his hands and swaggering about for 30-60 seconds...

    He's winning quite comfortably but this fight is god awfully boring.

    I find it weird that a fairly respected coach like Booth entertains that Geordie Shore guy in his gym.

    Man channel 5 really need to find another main eventer for their shows instead of Josh Kelly. He’s boring and won’t get near the top of the division.
