20-year-old, Slough’s Adam Azim (4-0, 3 KO’s) is widely regarded as one of the best prospects in the country and many people confidently pick Azim, even this early, to go on to win a world title. The quickly-developing young star last fought at Wembley Arena in March disposing of Southern Area Lightweight Champion Connor Marsden in just 30 seconds.
Azim, who has a relatively big and long frame, has made the decision to move up to a 140-pounds and will debut at the weight in his next fight. ‘The Assassin’ will headline a ‘Break Through’ show on June 25th at the Skydome Arena, Coventry live on Sky Sports Boxing for the IBF World Youth Super Lightweight Title
Adam Azim Next Fight For IBF World Youth Title
In the opposite corner will be Belgium’s Anthony Loffet (8-1). Loffet, the 24-year-old, has never boxed out of his native Belgium. His sole defeat came to Surik Petrosyan (6-0) in 2021 via a 5th-round TKO. Petrosyan has gone on to add 3 more wins to his record including the Belgian title to his collection. Loffet is coming off two points wins against losing records.
While Loffet may not be the strongest choice of opponent, Adam Azim is just 4 fights in and is moving up in weight. Headlining for the first time will be another boost in popularity especially if he can make a statement. Should Azim come through there are some quality domestic fights to be made for him including Rylan Charlton that has already been mentioned, Lee Appleyard and 140-pound Boxxer Series winner Cori Gibbs.
