Dan Azeez To Get European Title Shot, Denny-Pauls Set For The English, Riley Returns
Although the headliner and venue are unknown at the time of writing, it appears that BOXXER will be staging a show on Saturday, 11th of February in London live on Sky Sports Boxing, according to a circular from the European Boxing Union and multiple undercard fights reported.
Per the EBU, Undefeated British champion Dan Azeez (18-0, 12 KOs) will face France’s Thomas Faure (21-4-1, 2 KOs) for the vacant European Light Heavyweight Championship on Feb 11 in London, in a bout promoted by BOXXER.
Independent news organisation International Boxing News, which is NOT in any way affiliated with NoSmokeBoxing, reports that Tyler Denny (15-2-3) will defend his English middleweight title against Brad Pauls (16-0), a fight that doubles up as a British title eliminator, on a BOXXER show which will take place on the same date in the same city.
The channel also claims that unbeaten cruiserweight Viddal Riley (7-0) could take a step up in competition and face Anees Taj (7-2), subject to contracts being signed.
The O2 Arena and Alexander Palace are already booked for separate events on Feb 11 (not boxing) so the OVO Wembley or the Copper Box would presumably be the venue.
Stay tuned for information about the headliner and further bouts on the card as and when they are known.
