“He’s boxing more and a bit slicker and working on defense and stuff like that,” Dan Azeez told Secondsout about Buatsi. “But I wouldn’t be surprised if he just came at me at the center of the ring and started going at it. I wouldn’t be surprised.

“Listen, there’s a famous saying, ‘Don’t box a boxer, don’t brawl a brawler,’ and I’m pretty sure everyone will say he’s the boxer and I’m the brawler. So, we’ll see.

“As a boxer, we’re bred to go to war. God forbid, if he could murder me in the ring, he would to get the win.”
