Adam Azim vs. Santos Reyes – Fight Prediction
Here at Pundit Feed, we love our boxing. Below are the best two wagers we see being worth betting on ahead of this fight.
Fight to Be Less Than Three Rounds @ 1/1 (2.00)
Adam Azim is the heavy favourite to win this fight, with outright winner odds of 1/10. This is for good reason, given that the English super lightweight has looked mighty convincing across his first eight fights, compared to his opponent.
Azim won his first professional fight by decision, but since then, no man has been able to go longer than three rounds with the 21-year-old. With Azim’s strong record, plus the fact that Reyes has never fought away from home, while Azim is in his own backyard, we say a bet on this fight to go no longer than three rounds is a great wager.
Azim to Win in Round One @ 4/1 (5.00)
Of his last four fights, Azim has won three in the first round—the other he won just seconds into Round Two. Chances are, Azim will make another fast start here. He’s fought at Wembley Arena twice before, so should be used to the big stage, while his opponent will be fighting in the biggest fight of his career. Expect Azim to be composed, and blow Reyes away early.
Adam Azim vs. Santos Reyes Preview
With these two bets in mind, here’s a look at the background of each fighter ahead of Saturday night’s clash.
Debuting as a professional in 2020, Adam Azim has built a fantastic boxing career so far. The super lightweight holds a professional record of 8-0-0 with seven knockouts, and has been incredibly convincing with plenty of early knockouts to his name. Last year was a busy one for the 21-year-old, who fought five times, most recently defeating Rylan Charlton in November 2022. Azim will be eager to string together a few more wins and begin pushing for a British title fight later this year.
Nicaragua’s Santos Reyes has also had a strong career to date, having debuted in 2019. He has done well to work his way through the domestic fight scene undefeated, accruing a professional record of 12-0-0 over the past three years. He tends to stay on the outside and pick off points, with only three knockouts to date and nine wins by decision. This will be Reyes first time fighting overseas.
