“Franck Petitjean has a lot of experience and is by far the toughest opponent Azim has faced so far. It’s a huge test and if he passes it, then there really are no limits. We’ll look at the world title opportunities for him next year as he looks to keep the promise he made to Amir Khan and win a world title even quicker than he did.

He went 4-0 with BOXXER, he’s the English middleweight champion and now he’s gearing up for a European title. Honestly, I can’t wait to see how far Tyler Denny can go and I also can’t wait to hear how loud his army of supporters will be on fight night.
