Boxing Tonight: Kelly vs Corzo – Start Time, Undercard Info
Josh Kelly has warned Gabriel Corzo he is in a world of “trouble” when both meet tonight, live on DAZN.
Kelly collides with the unbeaten Argentinean at the Vertu Motors Arena in Newcastle later this month, with the packed Wasserman Boxing event shown live and exclusive around the world on DAZN.
The world No2, who displayed frightening speed and power during Friday’s training session at The Booth Boxing Gym, knows victory over the tough Corzo will put him within touching distance of a shot at the world title.
Kelly says a win will also bring his dream of fighting for the top prize at the Stadium of Light – the home of his beloved Sunderland AFC – next summer, that bit closer to being a reality.
The 2016 Olympian feels unstoppable, believes he is about to enter his “prime” years and is now ready to take over the world in the next 12 months.
“It is going to be an explosive performance on June 24 and my skillset, coupled with the way I am performing at the moment, means I can’t be matched. I am looking for the big names now,” Kelly declared.
“Having just turned 29, I am coming into my prime and Corzo is going to be in trouble later this month.
“I know I will get the chance for this world title in the next 12 months and I will win it.”
