Adam Azim vs Dalton Smith ordered for the European title

The European Boxing Union have confirmed Adam Azim vs Dalton Smith is being ordered for the European title. Adam Azim’s next Europe title defence was confirmed via their February newsletter earlier today.

Adam Azim retained his EBU Super Lightweight championship with victory over Enock Poulsen on the Buatsi vs Azeez undercard. Azim picked up the victory via KO in round 5 after Poulsen suffered a shoulder injury. It was Azim’s first championship defence after he captured the belt against Franck Petitjean in November 2023.

Adam Azim vs Dalton Smith will take place after Smith’s upcoming contest against Jose Zepeda. Smith vs Zepeda is being held in Sheffield on 23 March 2024, headlining Matchroom Boxing’s card on DAZN. If Dalton Smith is able to defeat Zepeda, it clears the way for a potential Azim vs Smith bout in the summer.
