Joshua Buatsi vs. Dan Azeez: Rescheduled Light Heavyweight Showdown Set for February 3 at The OVO Arena Wembley, Live on Sky Sports and Peacock”
Joshua Buatsi and Dan Azeez, two of the top light heavyweights in the world, were all set for a showdown at The O2 on October 21st. But Azeez hurt his back, and they had to push back their fight. So, now they’re going toe-to-toe on February 3, but not at The O2. They’re taking it to The OVO Arena Wembley, because The O2 was all booked up.
They thought about doing it on January 13th at The O2, but that was the same day Artur Beterbiev and Callum Smith were fighting for the Light Heavyweight World Title. Azeez’s coach, Buddy McGirt, who also trains Smith, would have been tied up.
So, what’s the big deal about this fight? Both Buatsi and Azeez are from London, unbeaten, and hungry to prove who’s the best. They’re fighting for more than just a win; the victor gets a shot at the WBA World Light Heavyweight Title. That’s a big deal.
Ben Shalom, the big boss at BOXXER, is pumped about having this fight in London. He says it’s a fight not to be missed, with a world title shot and London bragging rights on the line. Buatsi’s ready to show he’s the top dog in the division, and Azeez, now fully recovered, is just as eager.
If you had tickets for the October date and can’t make it in February, you can get your money back. But if you’re looking to grab a seat for this fight, head over to BOXXER.com and sign up for the presale.
