Joshua Buatsi vs. Dan Azeez Undercard

Commonwealth super-welterweight champion, Louis 'The Medway Mauler' Greene (16-3, 10 KO’s), is gearing up for his third title defense as he prepares to face off against Sam 'Magic Man' Gilley (16-1, 8 KO’s) in a high-stakes showdown set to take place on the undercard of BOXXER: BUATSI VS AZEEZ - PATHS COLLIDE. This thrilling bout is scheduled for Saturday, October 21st at The O2 in London and holds the promise of catapulting the victor into contention for the coveted British title.

Greene's journey to Commonwealth glory culminated in a resounding fifth-round knockout victory in November of the previous year. His title defense in May was equally emphatic, as he secured another thunderous stoppage victory. Greene, hailing from Kent, ventured to challenger Paul Kean's home city of Dundee and left no room for doubt, ending the Scotsman's night in the sixth round without relying on the judges' scorecards.

English super-welterweight champion, Sam Gilley, representing Walthamstow, earned his shot at Greene's Commonwealth title in June. In a memorable display of skill and power, Gilley delivered a blistering body-shot knockout against Ellis Corrie at London's historic York Hall. This victory marked the third stoppage win in his last four outings.

In addition to these headline clashes, the event also promises the presence of 2020 Olympics bronze medallist Karriss Artingstall (4-0). Artingstall is set to embark on her fifth professional outing, marking her second time competing over eight rounds. As she climbs the rankings and inches closer to title contention, her opponent for the upcoming match will be unveiled soon.

Expect sparks to fly in a ten-round super-welterweight encounter as Michael Hennessy (11-1, 2 KO’s) steps into the ring. Michael, the son of veteran British boxing manager Mick Hennessy and sibling of recent BOXXER signing Fran Hennessy, will square off against Harley Benn (9-2, 1 KO). Harley, in his own right, boasts an equally illustrious British boxing heritage, being the son of former two-weight world champion Nigel Benn.

The evening's main event promises a showdown of epic proportions as longtime friends Joshua Buatsi (17-0, 13 KO’s) and 'Super' Dan Azeez (19-0, 13 KO’s) put their unblemished records on the line in an all-domestic clash. The implications of this bout reach the world level, adding an extra layer of anticipation and excitement for fight fans.

Lastly, the British cruiserweight championship will be up for grabs when defending champion Mikael Lawal squares off against his bitter rival, Isaac Chamberlain. This long-anticipated confrontation is set to resolve their differences in explosive fashion, providing a fitting climax to an action-packed evening of boxing at The O2 in London.
