Troy Williamson and Josh Kelly Face Off In North East ‘Judgement Night’
2nd December 2022 at Utilita Arena Newcastle

It’s title time on the Tyne, with the epic North East battle for the British Super Welterweight
Championship confirmed between Darlington’s Troy Williamson (19-0-1, 14KOs) and
Sunderland’s Josh Kelly (12-1-1, 7 KOs) at the Utilita Arena, Newcastle on Friday December 2,
live on Channel 5.

Kelly expressed his desire to compete for Williamson’s Lonsdale belt as the two came face-to-
face in July after ‘PBK’ beat Lucas Bastida to claim the WBO International Super Welterweight Title on July 30.

With the champion equally keen to get the fight on, Williamson since added a win of his own to
his undefeated record as he stopped David Benitez in the sixth round on September 17 at the
University of Bolton Stadium live on Channel 5.

“We’re two fighters flying the flag for the North East, but only one of us holds that British title,”
said Williamson. “Every fight is going to be a tough fight at this level, especially when belts are
on the line.
“I’m the champ, I’m undefeated, and I don’t think there’s anything he can throw at me that’ll
stop my reign as super welterweight king as I move on to bigger and better things. One thing is
for sure, and that’s fireworks” said Kelly.

“Troy is British Champion for a reason and he’s obviously a good fighter. However, he’s just
another obstacle in the way of me achieving what I’m destined to achieve, and he’ll be taken
care of on December 2.”
“The last time we ventured to the North East, the people clearly showed their passion and
love for boxing,” said Wasserman’s Head of Global Boxing, Kalle Sauerland.

“This time it is on another level as we bring one of the most hotly anticipated domestic dust-
ups available. Two of the North East’s own battling it out to boast the title of Britain’s best.

Newcastle is about to host one of its biggest nights in the sport, and I cannot wait to be in the
arena for an electric atmosphere come fight night.”

Williamson vs Kelly for the British Super Welterweight Championship tops a huge night of
boxing in the North-East on Friday December 2 at the Utilita Arena, Newcastle.
