Adam Azim is riding high since turning professional.
The undefeated fighter has excelled in the paid ranks after ditching the headguard and vest.
Azim, from Slough, is just 20 years of age and already has five wins under his belt, four stoppages and a fringe title around his waist.
The WBC Youth Inter-Continental super-lightweight champion dazzled last time out, stopping Anthony Loffett in just 66 seconds to claim the aforementioned bauble in a vacant capacity, at the Skydome in Coventry last month.
And the Shane McGuigan-trained talent, who is in the gym alongside his brother Hassan, WBA ‘regular’ heavyweight champion Daniel Dubois, former Olympian Caroline Dubois, WBO world cruiserweight champion Lawrence Okolie and a whole host of other top fighters, is eager to build on his stardom, hoping to get out in September.
In an interview with Seconds Out, ‘The Assassin’ said:
“I will be back in September.”
“We’re not sure of the opponents yet, but there should be an announcement soon.”
Boxing Social understands that Boxxer, the promotional outfit behind Azim, has placed the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool on hold for September 3, with a regular Saturday night fight night set to be coming to the Sky Sports platform.
The last time they were at the venue was last November when Cori Gibbs won its Boxxer Series tournament in the super-lightweight division, outpointing local fighter Tom Farrell in the final via a three-round split decision.
Liam Smith, the former WBO world champion at super-welterweight, recently joined the roster at Boxxer and is expected to feature on the card, while WBO super-welterweight female champion Natasha Jonas – who is currently in talks with Hannah Rankin over a unification including the Scot’s WBA and IBO crowns – is also under contract with the outfit.
“I’ll fight twice more this year and I want an English opponent next.
“I want to bag all the titles, but it’s all about the patience as well. I’ve got to make sure that I take the right fights at the right times.”
