Top prospect Adam Azim (6-0-0, 5KOs) returns for the fifth time in 2022 on Sunday afternoon as he steps up in levels against Norfolk’s Rylan Charlton (9-3-1, 4KOs) at Alexandra Palace.

Azim holds the status as one of the most promising young talents in British boxing today.

Three of his wins have ended in the first-round and his last five all ended inside the distance.

The Slough man has proven difficult to match for promoter Ben Shalom and faces a test against a tough and experienced Charlton on Sunday afternoon.

The 30-year-old Charlton has three defeats to his name but has been competitive in all of his showings so far.

He floored a much bigger Florian Marku when he moved up to welterweight and narrowly lost to Dylan Cheema in the BOXXER Series lightweight tournament in April.

While Azim is expected to emerge unscathed, Charlton is expected to offer experience Azim is yet to have seen in the pro ranks as the push towards titles in 2023 continues.

The vacant British cruiserweight title will also be contested on Sunday between Mikael Lawal (16-0-0, 10KOs) and late replacement David Jamieson (9-1-0, 6KOs).

Lawal was originally set to face Deion Jumah this weekend before the latter was forced to retire from the sport after suffering a second detached retina last week.

Jamieson was brought forward as a result.

The pair previously shared a ring at an Ultimate BOXXER cruiserweight tournament in 2019 where Lawal handed the Scot his first defeat as a pro.

The twelve-round distance is set for this weekend as both look for their first major title.

English super-middleweight champion Zak Chelli (12-1-1, 6KOs) also takes on the undefeated Lerrone Richards (16-0-0, 3KOs) as the latter continues to hunt for the big names at 168lbs.

Another English title will be on the line when champion Sam Gilley (14-1-0, 7KOs) defends versus Sean Robinson (11-1-1).

Gilley has defended the title once since picking it up in November last year.

Brother of Adam in the main event, welterweight Hassan Azim (4-0-0, 2KOs) appears for the fifth time in a six-round contest versus Nestor Amukoto (2-3-1, 1KO).

The show will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Main Event from 3:00pm UK time.
