Saturday, February 3 – Wembley Arena, London

Joshua Buatsi vs. Dan Azeez – light heavyweight – 12 rounds

Quite the proposition in this British and Commonwealth light heavyweight title clash between friends and sparring-partner-come rivals Azeez and Buatsi. The fight has generated a lot of interest in the UK, and it has the potential of being a career-changing opportunity for the winner, especially given the huge interest currently placed in the division in which Dmitry Bivol and Artur Beterbiev occupy the top spots. Should be a good one!
