Rising star Adam Azim, the young wolf with a record of 9-0, including 6 knockouts, is on a mission to claim a championship title. At just 21 years old, he's set to make his mark on Saturday, November 18th, in Wolverhampton, where he'll face the EBU European Super Lightweight Champion Franck Petitjean, who holds a record of 24-6-3 with 6 KO's. This highly-anticipated showdown will be broadcast exclusively on Sky Sports. Azim is brimming with excitement for this upcoming battle. He expressed his enthusiasm, saying, "I am so thrilled for this fight. Competing for the EBU title in only my tenth professional bout is a massive opportunity for me. I'm fully prepared to deliver an electrifying performance and bring that championship belt home with me on November 18th." Azim's ambition is to capture European gold in his tenth professional fight, a remarkable achievement. If he emerges victorious, he will follow in the footsteps of his role model, 'Prince' Naseem Hamed, by winning an EBU title in his early twenties, propelling himself into contention for major world titles. Franck Petitjean, a southpaw, has an impressive track record, having won the French national championship and defended it three times. He then elevated his career to the European level as the EBU super-lightweight champion and even contested for the IBO world championship in 2018. In June of the same year, he regained the EBU title and is now gearing up for the first defense of his second championship reign against Azim. This matchup promises to be a thrilling clash of talents.
