Azeez Meets Osueke for English Crown
Fast-rising light-heavyweight Dan Azeez has the chance to add the English title to his collection on December 14.
The popular south Londoner (10-0, 7 KOs) takes on Newcastle’s Lawrence Osueke (9-0-1, 1 KO) on the undercard of the #GoldenContract light-heavyweight quarter-finals at the Brentwood Centre in Essex.
As he prepares to try and build on his impressive Southern Area title stoppage win over Charlie Duffield, Azeez is raring to go.
Azeez said: “I’m delighted with this news. The aim is always just to keep climbing the ladder and this is just the next stop on my journey.
“I actually remember Lawrence from the amateur days and he was one of the top boys back then so I hold him in high regard.
“I hope to contest even bigger titles in 2020 but I’ve always said it’ll be one thing at a time so right now, all I have in my sights is Mr Osueke.”
Azeez vs. Osueke will also serve as the reserve fight for the Golden Contract tournament, which already stars Hosea Burton, Steven Ward, Liam Conroy, Serge Michel, Lenin Castillo, Bob Ajisafe and Ricards Bolotniks.
