Light heavyweights Joshua Buatsi and Dan Azeez, ranked #1 and #2 respectively, are finally set to clash in the WBA World Title Final Eliminator. After an unexpected delay, this highly significant fight is now scheduled for February 3, ready to be aired live on Sky Sports in the UK and Ireland, and Peacock in the USA.

Originally planned for October 21st at The O2, an injury to Azeez during his last training session pushed the date forward. The O2 wasn’t available, so the venue has shifted to The OVO Arena Wembley. This matchup, featuring Buatsi (17-0, 3 KOs) against Azeez (20-0, 13 KOs), is a big deal in British boxing. It’s not just a fight; it’s about pride, with both unbeaten Londoners eager to prove who’s the best and earn a shot at the WBA World Light Heavyweight Title.

The initial attempt to reschedule for January 13th at The O2 clashed with another major fight, causing a scheduling conflict for Azeez’s coach, Buddy McGirt. But now, with a new date and venue, the stage is set. Ben Shalom, BOXXER’s CEO, has expressed his excitement about bringing this event to the capital. He acknowledges the fans’ disappointment from the postponement but assures that the wait is worth it.

Joshua Buatsi is raring to go, stating his eagerness to settle what he calls ‘unfinished business’. He’s focused and ready to prove why he’s the top contender. On the other hand, Dan Azeez is just as pumped, grateful for the schedule adjustment and keen to show the world his capabilities in what he describes as his own world title fight.

This event, loaded with excitement and anticipation, is backed by partners like Everlast, WOW HYDRATE, and Integritas Property Group. For fans who can’t make the new date, full refunds are available.
