You know the game better than me mate. Do you think they struggled to shed the weight for weigh in leading to it catching up on him?
Looks like it. No excuse though.

The size gain and the fact be was blowing and changed his tactics to try and walk the other bloke down in the pocket and take him out suggests he rehydrated quite a lot.

Ultimately the experience difference showed above all else. Don't think Kelly was comfortable with the cuts and the fact he'd caught a few butts in close either.

He came in a pound under the limit at the weigh-in so no.

Watching the fight back again the biggest issues were his stamina and his defence, definitely needs to sack Booth off and change camp.
That doesn't mean they haven't cut too much. Look at his size difference between weigh in and fight night. Quite a big difference. Says more than the weight he stepped on scales at imo.

Either way. He's got problems if he's gassing after 4 rounds. If he made the weight fine then he's got even worse problems coming :lol:

If that's the case it could mean he's outgrowing the weight division and needs to move up which he'll be very wary of doing if his power isn't telling at this weight.

Interesting to see what he does going forward. Don't think Booth is for him. He used to working with bangers. That style without the pop just going to see him take batterings
 
Strange from Booth this fight, he says Kelly is the most talented fighter he’s worked with and he’ll only put him in with fighters when he thinks he’s ready then throws him in with a world level fighter in his 12th fight !

Strange when it was first organised in 2019 even
He was saying a couple of years ago that he would be confident putting him in with Brook or Khan as well.

12th fight, and fighting for a European title
It’s to soon man!
Look at who Hatton, Haye, Froch and so many other top fighters before them, who they fought in there 12th fight
They rush so many prospects these days
It’s sink or swim rather than building them
@SkySportsBoxing
Its not a problem if we get over this idea that boxers have to be unbeaten forever, and that one loss is game over.
MMA doesn't have this issue at all

I know its been said that its easier to pick a winner on points but the two fights we've done this for have both been stoppages. Remember its just a bit of crack lads.
@Reflektor joins @Titus at the top of the leader board :cool:

I think Kelly can come back from that if he knuckles down and works on things.

He looked good at the start of the fight last night. His speeds phenomenal but he’s seriously lacking power. Needs to stop dropping his hands too as he’s leaving himself wide open too often. I still think he has some talent though.

I dunno whether it was ring rust, lack of desire or what but he just didn’t look good enough last night. He needs to get back to basics and just box. He was big enough last night he could have been on the front foot but he just let Avanesyan come towards him constantly.

I see they are still mentioning the Kelly Benn fight as a possibility. Based on that, Kelly has no chance with Benn. Be stupid to even entertain it at this point.
