I don't get why hearn doesn't just run with fitzgerald, surely sells tickets, liked by viewers for beating fowler, push him on for euro title and see how far he goes with backing.
Agreed.
Fitz can be a name to push in Preston whereas Fowler is just another cocky Scouser that cant sell a ticket.

Hearn should push Fitz imo...

I get the feeling that some one like Hearn can put himself in a difficult situation, with getting too friendly with fighter like Fowler?

Avanesyan did a doping test today. This should please Booth/Hearn who both hinted between the lines this was an issue regarding Kelly facing Avanesyan.

Just a boxing news 24 article, not saying much not yet said about these fighters and their recent bouts.

I am starting to think Hearn is setting up this fight to perhaps part ways with Kelly should he lose. The last fights have been tailor made for Kelly, but rather than gaining a larger fan base in the UK and the US, his popularity has folded and many even turned against him. Should Kelly win though, without any showboating and utilising good fundamental skills, I guess he'll get a voluntary EBU defence against someone easy to beat, and later down the road the Conor Benn fight. Whatever the outcome though, he won't be fast tracked anymore. Should Avanesyan win, there is the WBA regular title waiting (now that Besputin is in doping trouble), or perhaps a fight against Crawford?
