Lightweight prospect, Adam Azim is already targeting titles in the near future after securing his second professional win on Saturday night.
Azim (2-0, 1 KO) claimed the first stoppage victory of his career, dropping Stu Greener in each of the first two rounds, before the referee called a halt to the fight at the SSE Arena, Wembley.
’The Assassin’ also picked up a first win since linking up with trainer Shane McGuigan, who he credits for the performance.
“It was all down to Shane McGuigan,” Azim told proboxing-fans.com post-fight.
“He’s made me such an amazing fighter now and it’s going to get even better, I can’t wait for the next fight.
“I just wanted to prove [to] everyone in the ring today what my hand speed is like, you guys seen it for yourself.
“That’s just me slow, like that wasn’t me that fast. If I went a couple more rounds, you guys would have seen how many punches I would have thrown or how fast my punches are.
“But, do you know, what I can bang as well.”
The 19-year-old excelled in the amateur ranks, collecting 10 national titles before making his professional debut in December.
The Slough native, who is signed to BOXXER and Sky Sports, is expecting to be busy in 2022 and would like to win a title, as he continues his goals towards rivalling the likes of Teofimo Lopez and Devin Haney in the coming years.
“I just want to get as many fights as I can, because I’m going to have a busy schedule next year,” Azim added.
“I want to hopefully get a title shot, a small title.
“Anyone else can do it, like Devin Haney, Ryan Garcia, Teofimo [Lopez].
“They all had like little titles to develop themselves, that’s hopefully going to me as well.
“I’ll hopefully have a couple more fights next year, it’s going to be great next year.

“These lot are going to be my enemies when I’m up there, but these lot are also my inspiration as well, don’t forget that.
“They’ve done it so much when they were young. I’m the same age as what they were like when they were younger, so obviously once I get older I’ll be on their level.”
