Hearn Challenges Shalom: Doubts Azim-Smith Showdown Will Happen

Promoter Eddie Hearn is determined to make one of Britain’s top domestic fights happen, despite doubts looming over the potential clash between Adam Azim and Dalton Smith.

After the EBU ordered Azim to defend his European super-lightweight title against Smith, anticipation for the bout skyrocketed. However, negotiations have hit a roadblock, with Hearn questioning Shalom’s commitment to making the fight a reality.

Azim’s recent victory over Enock Poulsen only added fuel to the fire, setting the stage for an epic showdown between two rising super-lightweight talents. Despite the excitement surrounding the matchup, Hearn remains skeptical about its fruition.

In an effort to facilitate negotiations, Hearn offered to have the fight broadcast on Sky Sports, where Azim’s fights are typically aired. However, he believes that Shalom may ultimately withdraw Azim from the bout, casting doubt on the fight’s future.

As talks between the fighters stall, Smith gears up to face Jose Zepeda next month, marking a significant step-up in competition for the Sheffield native. With both fighters eager to prove themselves on the big stage, fans eagerly await the outcome of negotiations and the potential Azim-Smith showdown.
