On Friday night, in an Eddie Hearn promoted show in Newcastle, Josh Kelly had his third professional fight.

The boxer, topping the JD NXTGEN promotion, was matched against the experienced Tom Whitfield.

After two wins from his first two fights, the boxing pundits are of the opinion that Kelly has a very bright future in the game with his trainer, Adam Booth, inferring he?s the most talented boxer he?s ever trained.

Against Whitfield, Kelly showed exactly why there is so much anticipation as to how far he can go in the professional ranks.

The fight lasted a mere 79 seconds but in that time Kelly had everybody on the edge of their seats with a display that you wanted to see more of.

Looking in fine physical shape, Kelly boxed in a style similar to that deployed by Brendan Ingle?s fighters, with his hands down by his side and relying on his lightning fast reflexes to stay out of trouble.

When it came to landing punches of his own, they were delivered with venom, with Kelly switching from the head to the body with devastating effect, flooring Whitfield on a couple of occasions before his opponent could take no more and the referee, Graeme Williams, rightly stopped the fight.

Josh Kelly, remember the name, he has a huge future in the fight game.
