Undefeated Sunderland-born Josh Kelly will be one of the star attractions as he prepares to fight tomorrow night on the undercard of Katie Taylor’s bout with Jessica McCaskill at York Hill, Bethnal Green.

Kelly had been due to fight on the undercard of the much anticipated David Haye and Tony Bellew rematch on December 17 however Haye’s untimely injury meant the date was scrapped and has been rearranged for May 5.

The fight in London tomorrow night will see Kelly pit his skills against experienced Frenchman Jean Michel Hamilcaro as he aims to work his way up the welterweight ladder.

At 23 years-old Kelly is one of Britain’s most exciting young prospects a point emphasised by the setup around him.

The 5-foot 8-inch fighter is trained by Adam Booth and managed by Eddie Hearn’s promotional juggernaught – Matchroom.

The 2016 Rio Olympian’s talents have already attracted sponsorship in the form of JD Sports, impressive considering “Pretty Boy” has fought just four times professionally.

In those four bouts Kelly boasts a 75% knock out ratio having stopped Jony Vina, Tom Whitfield and Jose Luis Zungia.

“I believe he  needs to be tested early on because I’ve seen already what he can do,” Booth said to Sky Sports.

“The next 12 months are going to be very exciting for him with some big steps.”

Hamilcaro has won his last three bouts, including a split decision win over Lenny Bottai to win the vacant IBF Mediterranean Super Welterweight Title.

Although the Frenchman possesses more ring experience than Kelly with 36 professional fights, there’s little doubting that Hamilcaro is a stepping stone along the road to bigger things for Kelly.
