British prospect Adam Azim will face Rylan Charlton at Alexandra Palace in what will be his first headline fight of his boxing career.
Big things are being anticipated for the 20-year-old lightweight, who is entrenching himself as one of the next boxing stars this country has produced. He currently commands a faultless record of six wins, five knockouts and zero losses and recently dispatched Argentinian fighter Michal Cabral in stunning fashion.
A brutal body shot after barely two minutes was enough for Azim to add another victory to his arsenal. However, the Boxxer backed fighter will face one of his toughest fights on November 29.

Azim will take on Charlton at Ally Pally in what has already been dubbed as ‘Super Sunday’ by Boxxer. Charlton comes into the contest with a record of nine victories, three losses, and one draw, but will have the advantage of experience on his side.
Meanwhile, Hassan Azim, who also boasts a flawless unbeaten record, will also be in action at the Palace. Other huge fights will also see Mikael Lawal take on Deion Jumah, Lerrone Richards face Zak Chelli, and Sam Giley face off against Sean Robinson.
And Boxxer CEO Ben Shalom believes this is another exciting event that can “shake up” the UK boxing scene. “This will be our first-ever ‘Super Sunday’ live on Sky Sports – and it is yet another example of our intent to shake up the sport,” Shalom said in a statement released by Boxxer.

“This event will showcase some of the very best prospects this country has to offer. The incredible Adam Azim is on the fast-track to success and faces his toughest test to date in what is his first headline fight.
“Everyone expects him to become a world champion and I expect him to use this fight as a launchpad for further success in 2023. We have a cracking card in store. Lerrone Richards vs Zak Chelli promises to be a real treat too, along with a brilliant British title fight between Mikael Lawal and Deion Jumah.
“Ally Pally is one of Britain’s best-loved venues and has a reputation for drawing a very passionate crowd. There will be a festival feeling to compliment what is an incredible card. We’re all very excited for a ‘Super Sunday’ at this iconic venue on November 27th.”
