Two of the hottest prospects in British boxing open the card, with Hassan Azim turning over from amateur to join his brother Adam in the professional ranks.

A member of Team GB and bronze medal winner at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games, silver medallist at the European Youth Championships and six-time national champion, red-hot Azim is one of the best prospects to turn over in recent years

Adam Azim turned professional last year following an outstanding amateur career which encompassed ten national titles, a European championship and the #1 spot in the youth amateur welterweight rankings. He now trains with Shane McGuigan who tips him as a future unified world title champion.
