Kelly vs Corzo – DAZN – July 15 – 2 pm ET

Josh Kelly’s high-stakes clash with the unbeaten Gabriel Corzo has been pushed back to Saturday, July 15.

Kelly, the No2 ranked super welterweight in the world, suffered an injury in training this week, and so the Wasserman Boxing event in Newcastle will take place three weeks later.

All tickets bought for the original date remain valid for the new date of July 15, with Kelly vs Corzo still being staged at the Vertu Motors Arena, in Newcastle as planned.

The 29-year-old’s meeting with the unbeaten Argentinian will be shown live and exclusive around the world on DAZN..

Kalle Sauerland, Global Head of Boxing at Wasserman Boxing, said: “Josh has been firing on all cylinders in the gym of late, and was itching to get back in the ring in front of his brilliant fans.

“However, he suffered an injury in training which means we have to push his return back three weeks.

“But Josh will be ready for July 15, where he will deliver a statement performance to the rest of the division, live on DAZN.”

On July 15, Josh Kelly sets off on his quest for the world super welterweight title in Newcastle, squaring off against Gabriel Corzo from Argentina, an event that will be broadcasted live and exclusively on DAZN worldwide.

Wasserman Boxing and the global broadcasting behemoth have teamed up to propel Kelly’s chase for the world title, starting at the Vertu Motors Arena next month.

Ranked as the world’s No.2, Kelly is aware that a victory against Corzo could land him a potential face-off with the undisputed champion, Jermell Charlo.

However, the undefeated Corzo, currently ninth in the global standings, harbors his own global aspirations and is determined to upset Kelly’s plans, potentially shattering his dreams of a world title.

The event also features heavyweight contender Nathan Gorman making his return, Codie Smith’s second professional match, and the latest performance from Chloe Watson, the future face of women’s boxing in the country.

Heavyweights Steve Robinson from Newcastle and Franklin Ignatius will engage in a must-see duel of powerful punchers, while fan favorite Ben Marksby continues his super lightweight journey. Known as ‘Pretty Boy’, Kelly’s journey constitutes one of the most riveting comeback narratives in recent British boxing history, as the 29-year-old continues to rebound from his loss to David Avanesyan.

Despite being written off and dismissed by many after his stoppage loss, Kelly silenced his doubters with his remarkable British title win over Williamson in December, marking the first milestone in his comeback.
