    Exactly, they know how good Azim is. He is only 21, they are desperate to try and get him now while young and inexperienced before he vanishes off to a level Smith will likely never reach.

    I imagine they are also mentioning Azims name every 2 mins due to his much larger profile and trying anything they can to make people aware of Dalton as now 16 fights in and they are still having to use seat filler sites giving out freebies to even quarter fill Sheffield arena

    Dalton smith would beat Azim comfortably imo, azim doesn’t impress me that much

    This is exactly what it is ...Eddie knows how good Azim is and he knows he will only improve..get him now while he in development.. it's desperate for a 27yr guy still waiting for a world title shot .. Azim is 6 years younger ... Where will Azim be in 6 years? .. again as I said there are levels to this .. What Azim has is God gifted in terms of hand speed , power, reflexes , and that can't be taught in the gym you either have it or not ...

    if we compare with a similar fight against another cynically picked over-the-hill Mexican former world champion (Vargas v Ball)…the tone is completely different. effusive praise v complete lack of enthusiasm.

    I'll be bold and say Dalton is levels above Azim and Azim will never be as good as Dalton is now. I just don't see it.

    A good and mature performance by Dalton Smith. By the way, praise to Matchroom for a really good UK show ! The main card was great.

    Hatton Jr. showed an incredible fighting spirit and he can be proud of himself.

    If his name was not Hatton he would be fighting in leisure centres and town halls he is very very poor no power falls in with his chin up in the air and smothers his work theres a reason they wont put him in with anyone who can punch a bit.That was an area level fighter that beat him easily tonight so what's his level?

    Great win for Dalton. Was really interested to hear his thoughts but Hearn grabbed the mic to shout ‘I dare you, I dare you’ and made it all about himself.

    Plenty of things I’d dare Eddie to do, like tell us what happened to proving Benn’s innocence for a start.

    Spot on. I like Dalton but he deserves some proper exposure now. My mate went to the show and said even though they cordoned most of the arena off it was still half empty.

    Then who do you think is Adam Azim's best matchup is right now?

    Because right now, everyone in the top 10 are older than Azim by quite a bit nor is there any reason for Adam to go fight them right now

    Surely if you want Azim next you wouldn’t sign a new Matchroom deal? Makes it much easier to make the fight if you remain a free agent, by all means go back to Matchroom after the fight though.

    Call me a cynic though… “e didn’t want it koogs”

    Hearn did his usual skill of managing to contradict himself in the same sentence. Went from wanting world titles next to calling out Azim who’s ‘levels below’ in the space of 5 seconds.
