Azeez-Fielding and Chris Billam-Smith vs Armend Xhoxhaj top the BOXXER bill. The undercard is filled with bright prospects such as Caroline Dubois and Viddal Riley, plus world title contender Michael McKinson makes an appearance.
Dan Azeez defeated Tyson Fury's cousin Hosea Burton to win the Lonsdale belt November 2021, then decisioned challenger Shakan Pitters unanimously only three months ago in September to retain his crown.
The Lewisham puncher's last three opponents have been Hosea Burton, Reece Cartwright and Shakan Pitters, with a combined record of 66-5, and three great domestic names to add to the already impressive resume. The 33-year-old South Londoner is doing things the traditional way, aready pocketing Southern Area, English and British titles, he now gets a chance to add the Commonwealth. All being well, next step could be European, followed by World to complete the set!
But first, he makes another step up in competition against a former world champion in Rocky Fielding.
After his annihilation at the hands of Canelo within three rounds in 2018, many assumed he was ready to retire, but the Liverpudlian has since bounced back with three stoppage wins.
In his 33rd professional bout, he aims to become a two-weight British and Commonwealth champion, having held both belts at super-middle in 2017.
Tim Rickson, BBN Editor: “Rocky is going to be Azeez's toughest test to date, but the British champ has come through every challenge yet, so I expect him to continue that success. I really respect his tenacity and workrate, and I have even more respect and admiration for the way he is handling his career. He is going the traditional route and I love when a domestic fighter does that. Every fight has been a progression from the next, onwards and upwards, and I would love for him to complete the set to win every title from Southern Area to World.
“My prediction is that Azeez battles bravely to win on points. Then I would love to see him challenge Mathieu Bauderlique for the European next.”
