Josh Kelly v Lucas Brian Ariel Bastida Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions

Josh Kelly will be looking to make it back-to-back wins when he returns to action this weekend.

Kelly was last in the ring in June when he stopped Peter Kramer in the fourth round at the Liverpool Echo Arena. It was Kelly’s first appearance since suffering his first defeat as a professional.

‘Pretty Boy’ tasted defeat for the first time when his corner opted to throw the towel in during the sixth round in his bout against David Avanesyan at Wembley Arena.

Avanesyan is a beast and has a great future, but it was a massive shock to Kelly and his camp, and they all known a lot of hard work and dedication is needed before he gets anymore big fights.

Kelly has a professional record of 13 fights, 11 victories, one defeat and one draw. That draw came in New York against Ray Robinson with the Brit retaining his WBA international welterweight belt.

Lucas Brian Ariel Bastida has won 18 of his 20 fights, and although he has 10 knockouts to his name, I cannot see him being a match for Kelly.

This will be Bastida’s toughest test yet. He has not faced anyone as talented as Kelly and I expect the Sunderland-born fighter to get the Argentinian out of there inside five rounds.
