The European Boxing Union (EBU) revealed today that top super lightweight prospect Adam Azim will make his first bid for meaningful hardware when he faces champion Franck Petitjean on November 18th in Wolverhampton.
It’s a remarkably quick turnaround for Azim, who’s less than two weeks removed from passing his stiffest test to date with a unanimous decision over Aram Fanyan. Considering he fought five times in 2022 and had to sit out the middle portion of 2023 with injury, perhaps he’s just eager to make up for lost time. I certainly won’t complain about that sort of ambition.
Here's everything you need to know ahead of Franck Petitjean vs Adam Azim.
Date: Saturday, November 18.
Time: At 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT.
The fight night will begin on Saturday, November 18 at 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT. The fight will be held at the Civic Hall in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, United Kingdom.
"I've always loved a challenge and the fact that I can take part in a major event abroad is very motivating. I'm looking forward to pushing Adam to the limit and, of course, returning to France victorious!" said Petitjean.
"I am so excited for this fight - fighting for the EBU title in just my 10th fight is massive for me. I'm ready to put on a show and bring that belt home with me on November 18th."
