Eddie Hearn Challenges Adam Azim: I Dare you to Fight Dalton Smith

Promoter Eddie Hearn wasted no time in issuing a challenge to European super lightweight champion Adam Azim following Dalton Smith’s impressive victory over Jose Zepeda. With Smith’s dominant performance capturing the attention of boxing fans, Hearn called for a showdown between the British and Commonwealth champion Smith and the European champion Azim.

Smith’s fifth-round body shot finish to Zepeda showcased his undeniable skill and determination, leaving fans eager to see him take on his domestic rival, Azim. With both the British Boxing Board of Control and the European Boxing Union ordering the fight, Hearn emphasized the significance of this matchup, daring Azim to step into the ring against Smith.

“I haven’t got too much to say to Adam Azim other than I dare you,” declared Hearn. “There is no reason that you won’t fight this man other than he’s too good. But what we want to do is chase the world championship, but we will drop back down the levels to fight Adam Azim if we have to give Sheffield a big fight.”

Despite acknowledging Azim’s talent, Hearn made it clear that Smith’s aspirations lie in pursuing a world championship, and he sees Azim as a stepping stone in that journey. With Smith’s victory earning him the WBC silver title, Hearn aims to secure a top-five ranking for his fighter, positioning him for a shot at Devin Haney’s 140lbs belt.

“That was a world class performance,” Hearn commented on Smith’s win. “Tonight we’ve done that, I believe we’re going to go into the top five, and this young man is now 16-0 and well on his way to a world championship shot.”

With ambitious plans for Smith’s future, Hearn envisions a world title fight at Hillsborough football stadium, home of Smith’s Sheffield Wednesday Football Club. As Smith continues to ascend in the rankings, Hearn remains determined to guide him towards championship glory, with Azim potentially standing in his path.
