Everything you need to know as Adam Azim welcomes Santos Reye to London

Arguably one of the most exciting prospects in British boxing, Adam Azim will take to the ring this weekend as he looks to extend his unbeaten record on the way to what could be a break-out year for the 20-year-old.

Since turning professional in 2020, the quick-fisted ‘Assassin’ has stunned fans throughout the UK with a series of early knockouts and will now take on the Nicaraguan Santos Reye. Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of the fight, Azim has said: “Hopefully I’m going to be fighting for the European title in June, July time. It would be good to get that before my birthday. It would be a great thing to win the European title really young as well.

“Another step forward to world glory one day, that’s one of my dreams. One day soon. I really want to become world champion before 22 so that’s my dream.”

Reye, however, stands in Azim’s way and comes to the British shores with an undefeated record as well. He successfully defended his WBA Fedecentro title last December when he beat Ricardo Cortez on the judges’ scorecards.

What’s been said?

Speaking to Sky Sports about his opponent, Azim said: “He’s a durable opponent. He’s definitely going to come and give it a go. He’s 12-0. I don’t underestimate no one so I’m looking forward to putting on a show and hopefully he’s going to bring the best to me, which is what I want.

“I’d say I’ve probably got one of the best defences in the UK because my defence is unreal. No one’s seen it yet. A lot of people say I’m very heavy-handed in both hands but I think it’s defence that I have as well. It’s the speed, it’s the power, it’s the IQ, it’s the timing. Timing beats speed. Power doesn’t beat speed or timing but if you have all of them combined, obviously you’ve got no one to stand against you.”
