Adam Azim (7-0, 6KO) faces fellow undefeated prospect Santos Reyes (12-0, 3KO) this Saturday night, February 11, on the BOXXER Fight Night show at the OVO Wembley Arena, live on Sky Sports.
It's the first time the 20-year-old prodigy known as 'The Assassin' is headlining a major British arena and the first time in his nascent professional career he'll be facing an undefeated opponent in 'Starboy' Santos.
But who is his opponent? Reyes has never fought in the UK before, so BBN have listed some important facts about the visiting fighter below:Santos Reyes was born and raised in Managua, the capital city of Nicaragua in Central America.
His nickname is 'Starboy'.
Hes trained by former two-weight world champion Rosendo Alvarez and promoted by Buffalo Boxing.
He is managed by Australian boxing promoter, Tony Tolj, who said of his next fight in London: "Santos will come to give everything he can and won't die wondering. We know it will be a tall order and Azim is a class fighter. You only get better by fighting the best and Starboy will be reaching for the stars live on Sky"
He is currently the No.1 super-lightweight in Nicaragua; No.4 in the WBA FedeLatin rankings; and BoxRec have him ranked at 108th in the world.
His professional record stands at 12-0 but he has actually fought 13 times. One of his bouts was declared a No Contest due to an unintentional headbutt causing a cut on the left eyebrow of his ninth opponent Israel Lopez in August 2021, resuting in referee Onofre Ramirez suspending the fight.
He won the WBA Fedecentro super-lightweight title in his 11th fight and defended it successfully in his last fight in December 2022.
