David Avanesyan vs. Josh Kelly is Ordered By The EBU

By Per Ake Persson

English welterweight Josh Kelly, 8-0, has been named mandatory challenger for EBU welter champ David Avanesyan, 24-3-1.

The EBU have set April 30 as deadline for private negotiations and will after that call for purse bids. However, it appears that Avanesyan will first take on the man he beat to win the title, Kerman Lejarraga, 27-1, in a rematch but if the EBU is in agreement with this is an open question.

And even if the EBU agrees, Avanesyan exposed Lejarraga pretty badly and a rematch is a dangerous move by the Spaniards. Another loss and Lejarraga can forget about the US and the big money fights for a long time.

Kelly and Avanesyan were scheduled to fight a few months ago, but then Kelly withdrew following the official weigh-in and there are different claims regarding his withdrawal.

EBU super welterweight champ Sergio Garcia, 29-0, makes a voluntary defence against still dangerous veteran Sergey Rabchenko, 29-4, June 22 in Torrelavega, Spain. The winner of this fight have Frenchman Cedric Vitu as mandatory challenger.

It´s official: Patrick Nielsen and Mark Madsen clash in a MMA fight June 8 at the new KB Hall in Copenhagen. Nielsen has a background as a boxer and is new to MMA while Madsen was an Olympic wrestler and is 7-0 in MMA. How big this will be in Denmark remains to be seen but the promoters have very high expectations it seems.
