PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Josh Kelly might be advised to swerve social media for a spell, at least until the blizzard of bloody mementos of his first career defeat blows out. Against a background of broken dreams and deflated egos Kelly’s career prospects are being radically reviewed across all platforms.“Who remembers the time Josh Kelly stopped a plumber by hitting him with eight left hooks in a row and Tony Bellew had an orgasm on commentary telling us we were watching a future hall of famer?” was one example from a sample full of vicious contempt and gloating. Kelly certainly indulged in the kind of boorish bombast typical of a kid fed on praise and affirmation.i's fantasy football tips newsletter: get aheadEmail address is invalidThank you for subscribing!Sorry, there was a problem with your subscription.As his fighting moniker “Pretty Boy” attests, he positively glowed in the hauteur of Love Island lad, and in the ring there was enough flash to spring clean Buckingham Palace.   Read More Chris Eubank vs Michael Watson: Fight retold on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories still elicits powerful emotion Ultimately this game is about substance. Kelly was always heading towards the truth of a capable opponent with a granite jaw and a hunger the equal of his.At some point he was going to be faced by a man who would weather the high voltage phases, the hands by the sides goading, the “look at me, aren’t I great” hooks to the body and head, and just keep walking forward. That man was David Avanesyan at Wembley Arena, a fighter tempered in the molten heat of world title fights. After four rounds of on-top flourishes, Kelly began to understand what high level boxing is all about.By increments Avanesyan broke through in defence of his European welterweight crown, landing unforgiving shots that would hit the spot with increasing weight and intensity. A cut behind Kelly’s left ear had begun to colour the canvas early, perhaps presaging the tempest to come.As the momentum swung from Sunderland to Armenia a second gash opened on Kelly’s right eye.

He knew he was in the fight of life.It was clear by the fifth where this was heading and that Kelly, his torso a patchwork of vintage burgundy, did not have the well of experience to weather the onslaught.  Kelly had few answers to Avanesyan’s pressure (Photo: Matchroom Boxing/Dave Thompson)A standing count in the sixth was followed by a barrage that buckled his knees and invited the white flag. Kelly, pawing the canvas on all fours, did not know where he was when Adam Booth launched the towel over the ropes.It was the act of a savvy trainer who understood that if his fighter is to have a second crack at the big show his chances would not be served by rising to his feet a third time.  Smart move. Kelly needed oxygen on his stool before he could leave the ring to have his flesh wounds sewn and begin the process of healing. Whether he can make the mental adjustments required of a beaten fighter is another question. His promoter, Eddie Hearn, believes he can. Of course he does.“We saw a world-class welterweight against a really good prospect who I believe could be a world-class fighter but he was out-hustled, out-fought and as good as the start was you could see him unravelling,” Hearn said. “Josh Kelly took the step up and should be applauded for that. He’s a young man and can come again.” Follow i sport on Facebook for more boxing news, interviews and featuresMore on boxingShock defeat a ‘crushing blow’ that leaves Warrington short of options Eubank’s regret over Watson brain injury still a powerful storyOkolie wants to step out of AJ’s shadow – and then come for the heavyweightsJoshua or Fury – but first Usyk: Joyce lays out his big heavyweight plans Hagler and Leonard have been here before as fight for America’s soul goes on
