Super welterweight contender Josh Kelly has signed a multi-year deal with Wasserman Boxing.
“Josh Kelly is one of the hottest properties in the sport and there are many huge domestic and international fights out there for him, so we are thrilled he has put pen to paper on a new multi-year deal with Wasserman Boxing,” Kalle Sauerland of Wasserman Boxing said.
“Promoting Josh has been a dream but make no mistake, we are only just getting started with this man.”
Kelly, a 29-year-old fighter from England, started his pro campaign at welterweight. His career kicked off with nine consecutive victories before fighting Ray Robinson to a draw in 2019. Two fights later, he suffered a stoppage loss to world title challenger David Avanesyan. Since then, has moved up one weight class and won the British super welterweight title. In his next fight, he will match up with Gabriel Corzo in Newcastle on June 24.
“I am really happy to have signed a multi-year deal with Wasserman Boxing,” Kelly said.
“Winning the British title against Troy Williamson, at a packed-out arena last year, is a moment that I will never forget, but now we are ready to take on the world, starting on June 24 in Newcastle. Let’s go!”
