Joshua Buatsi and Dan Azeez will finally come head-to-head next month in one of the most highly-anticipated fights of the new year.

The two light-heavyweights were set to put their undefeated records on the line in October but Azeez suffered a back injury on fight week.

'Super Dan', 20-0-0, has now recovered from the trapped nerve suffered in his final training session before the original fight date.

The English, Commonwealth and European champion will now battle 2016 Olympic bronze medallist Buatsi, 17-0-0, for the right to face WBA champion Dmitry Bivol.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Joshua Buatsi vs Dan Azeez.

When is Joshua Buatsi vs Dan Azeez?

Date:  Saturday, February 3.

Time: At 03:00 PM ET

 The rescheduled contest will now take place at The OVO Arena, Wembley due to a lack of available dates at The O2.

What has been said?

Buatsi said: “I’m excited to get a new date locked in. There’s definitely some unfinished business. The delay has only made me more determined. It’s a very important fight.

“There is too much on the line for me to contemplate anything other than victory. On February 3rd, I’m going to show why I am the number one in the division. It’s my time to shine!”

Azeez said: “I’m really glad to have recovered. My back feels better than ever and I can’t wait for February 3rd. I’m thankful for BOXXER and Ben Shalom for moving the show for me.

“The initial date was meant to be January 13th but obviously my trainer will be in the corner for Callum Smith vs Artur Beterbiev so I’m really pleased everyone has been able to accommodate this for what is essentially my world title fight.”
