Add yet another Beltway Boxer to the growing Al Haymon Family.  BATB has learned that undefeated DC heavyweight Danny "Smooth" Kelly has signed a contract with the uber boxing promoter.

Kelly (6-0-1, five KO's) is coming off a solid first-round TKO over Eric Newell on June 5 in Boston, MA in front of a nationally televised (Fox Sports1) audience.  There is a possibility that Kelly may be added to the Saturday, August 9 card at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, but nothing is set yet.  If the bout takes place, Kelly would join other Beltway Boxers on the card such as The Peterson Brothers, D'Mitrius Ballard and Lamont Roach, Jr..

The Beltway Division of the Haymon Family continues to grow as Kelly joins The Petersons, Gary Russell, Jr., Thomas Williams, Jr., Dominic Wade, Gervonta Davis, Kareem Martin, David  Grayton and Phil Jackson-Benson.

Kelly's head trainer is former world title contender and Beltway Boxing Legend Andrew Council (shown with Kelly in the above picture). Tim Valentine is his chief second and Kelly's manager is his long-time mentor Daryl Brown.

The beltway boxers are proving that there are more the just a few fighters in our area that can make their talent impress the most highly respected manager in the sport of boxing ( Al Haymon). Congratulations to the fighters that moved to the next level of their careers. Hope to see you all make it to the top soon!
