British light-heavyweight champion ‘Super’ Dan Azeez has signed an exclusive long-term deal with BOXXER and will defend his title on March 26 – live on Sky Sports.
The undefeated London man will be making his first defence of the belt he won in November with a career-best performance which resulted in a seventh-round stoppage of former champion Hosea Burton.
With 10 of his 15 wins by way of knockout, Azeez, who boxed for Essex University while studying a Finance & Accounting degree, has so far lived up to his growing reputation.
