On June 24th, Josh Kelly begins his journey towards the world super welterweight title as he takes on Gabriel Corzo in Newcastle.
The Wasserman Boxing event, exclusively broadcast on DAZN, is aiming to propel Kelly’s pursuit for the championship. Currently ranked No2 globally, Kelly understands that triumph over Corzo will bring him closer to a shot at undisputed champion Jermell Charlo.
However, Corzo, undefeated and ranked No9, has his own aspirations and seeks to shatter Kelly’s dreams. The event also features the return of heavyweight contender Nathan Gorman, the second pro contest for the skilled Codie Smith, and showcases the future of women’s boxing with Chloe Watson.
With high stakes and intense matchups, this event promises a thrilling night of boxing action. Kelly is determined to deliver an outstanding performance on DAZN, aiming to make a statement to the rest of the division. Corzo, on the other hand, is confident in his ability to upset the odds and move closer to his own shot at the world title.
Wasserman Boxing and DAZN are excited to collaborate, showcasing more exceptional boxing events to fans worldwide. They express their belief in Kelly’s talent and anticipate a spectacular showdown against the formidable Corzo.
Joe Markowski, CEO of DAZN North America, expresses their commitment to deliver for fight fans, promising to follow Kelly’s journey closely as he pursues the World Title. Kelly, known as ‘Pretty Boy’, is on a remarkable comeback after his defeat to David Avanesyan. Despite being written off by many, his British title win over Williamson demonstrated his exceptional skills and silenced the critics.
