Adam Azim Next Fight To Be Never Before Stopped Argentinian In Liverpool
At just 20-years-old, Slough’s Adam Azim (5-0, 4 KO’s) is considered one of if not the best rising star in British boxing with many early, natural comparisons to Amir Khan due to the vast amount of similarities from heritage to age to lightning quick hands; a comparison that Azim is yet to disappoint.
Quickly developing under the guidance of arguably Britain’s best trainer in Shane McGuigan, the young prospect has secured three outings already this year and hopes to finish the year at 7-0. After stopping former Northern Area champion Jordan Ellison on the Khan-Brook card, Azim dispatched Southern Area Lightweight Champion Connor Marsden in just 30 seconds five weeks later.
Before his last fight, Adam Azim made the decision to move up to a 140-pounds. In his super lightweight debut, he won the WBC Youth Intercontinental Title by knocking out Anthony Loffet (8-1) in the opening round; a feat that has now become expected every time ‘The Assassin’ enters the ring.
Adam Azim To Defend WBC Youth Super Lightweight Title
The Slough hope will defend his WBC Youth Super Lightweight Title on the Liam Smith vs Hassan Mwakinyo undercard on September 3 at the M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool; a BOXXER on Sky Sports Boxing Card. Azim was supposed to face unbeaten Ghanian Richard Fenyi (7-0, 6 KO’s). Fenyi, a ‘puncher’ with 6 KOs in his 7 fights, a form of test many critics have been calling for Azim to face. However, Visa issues meant it wasn’t supposed to be.
Instead, Azim will face Argentina’s 23-year-old Michel Cabral (5-4). Cabral has never been stopped in four defeats and upset unbeaten Argentinian prospect Franco David Rodriguez (4-0) in his last contest via split decision showing Cabral is not here to fall over and will try and win. Azim has amazing hand speed and power, which allows him to hurt opponents early, and Cabral could be the perfect fighter to extend him much-needed rounds before a big fight later in the year.
