Close opener but think Kelly edges it for initiative.
Good second with Kelly waking the Armenian up with a solid left hook.
Kelly still a bit open to body shots. He is better when mixes between picking his opponent off and shortening his punches.
Looks like the best prospect in the world got his ass handed to him by a rugged Russian.
Kelly is a wonderful skilled boxer , however he doesn't have the power to hold off better fighters.
I think he is done, i cant see him getting much better at 26.
Remember reality is an illusion caused by a lack of alcohol .
Kelly had 6 fights since this thread was started 4 years ago. Huge respect for taking on a proven world level European champion in his 11th fight but he was clearly lacking the "padding" for this test.
There are great matchups for him to rebuild - Cheeseman, Fowler, Eggington, Kongo, Marku, Benn, etc.
People saying a 26 year old novice is "done, exposed, emabarrassed" after a loss at world level probably don't follow much boxing... or understand it at least.

3-Time SADDO PREDICTION COMP CHAMPION.
His wife's dad is worth a lot of money and Kelly has gone into business with him to some extent. Food trucks apparently. He has two fights left on his contract. This is stuff I've been told. I wouldn't swear to any of it being a hundred percent accurate though.
Stuff I'm guessing about. Eddie will give him an easy comeback win and then a decent test to see if his heart is still in it and if he's worth giving another contract to. Personally from the little bits I've seen I don't think he's too bothered anymore. He's discovered he's not Roy Jones and that the world is full of fighters with no name or pedigree who are tough fucking sledding and that's before he gets to world level. Even if he's still a hundred percent committed to the sport I think he's found his level already.
