Azim blasts Charlton away with brutal KO

Adam Azim made light work of the toughest test of his career to date with a thrilling second-round knockout victory over Rylan Charlton.

Charlton had been touted as a significant step up for Azim, but the 20-year-old knocked down his durable opponent twice in the first round at Alexandra Palace, before ruthlessly ending the fight early in the second.

Azim moves to 7-0 in his fledgling professional career, with all the fights apart from his debut having ended inside the distance.

Azim’s latest performance will only build further hype around the super-lightweight prospect, who has already been described by coach Shane McGuigan as the most talented boxer he has ever trained.
