Dan Azeez vs. Joshua Buatsi Heat Up Before Wembley Showdown!
This Saturday, Wembley Arena will witness an intense all-British clash between light-heavyweight contenders Dan Azeez and Joshua Buatsi, and the hostility between them is escalating. Azeez believes Buatsi is ‘rattled,’ setting the stage for a classic bout that fans won’t want to miss.
The fight was initially scheduled for October of last year but got postponed due to Azeez’s back injury, adding fuel to the growing tension between the two south London fighters. Azeez, who sees this bout as pivotal, expressed his satisfaction with the rescheduling, emphasizing the significance of the clash between two undefeated fighters.
Reflecting on the postponement, Azeez highlighted his determination for a classic encounter, drawing parallels with iconic matchups like Bowe vs. Holyfield. The south Londoner considers Buatsi the perfect dance partner for an exciting showdown, given their history of lively sparring sessions.
Buatsi’s voiced doubts about Azeez’s injury didn’t sit well with his opponent, but Azeez remains focused on the fight itself. Despite acknowledging the strain on their friendship, Azeez is ready for the challenge, stating, “This is someone I know, do you know what I mean? But if that’s what he wants to think, that’s up to him. I know the truth.”
Buatsi, an Olympian, has faced disruptions in his favor, and Azeez believes the postponement might have rattled him. However, Azeez is prepared for the best version of Buatsi in the ring, envisioning a cool and calm opponent.
As the anticipation builds for this clash of undefeated contenders, Azeez sees the fight as an opportunity to become “the man” in the light-heavyweight division. The Wembley showdown promises to deliver fireworks and settle the score between two fighters who share a long history and are now on a collision course.
