Azim continued his onslaught in the second round
In what was supposed to be his toughest test, Adam Azim passed with flying colours.
The boxing prospect dispatched Rylan Charlton inside two rounds as part of the BOXXER event at Alexandra Palace in London.
Azim got off to a quick start, jabbing Charlton to both the head and body.
His first power punch stumbled his rival before blocking a second shot.
However, a rapid cross clips Charlton over his jab. Azim started hectically but he landed with power and hurt Charlton.
Azim pursued his opponent and dropped him with a right hook.
Charlton rose at the count of eight.
With seconds left in the round, Azim sent Charlton to the canvas and ends up being saved by the bell.
Azim continued his onslaught in the second round, hurting Charlton again.
A massive right bombed down and in an almost delayed reaction Charlton fell into the bottom rope and the towel flew in from his corner, saving their fighter from more punishment.

After the fight, Adam Azim dedicated the victory to his mother.
He said: “This fight was dedicated to my mum, so happy birthday for next week.
“This is definitely a big one. Everyone give a clap to Rylan getting up to his feet. Thank you Rylan for everything that you’ve done. He’s a tremendous fighter and I hope that he’s alright.”
His record now stands at 7-0.
Adam Azim was confident heading into the fight, despite still only being in the early stages of his career.
He said: “I’m not arrogant, I’m there to do my job in the ring and enjoy it and entertain the fans.
“Throughout my boxing career, I’ve never let anything get to my head. I’ve always been a normal boy. I’m not there yet.
“Even right now I’m not there yet. I’m good but I’m not very good yet.
“When I become world champion that’s when I’ll say I’m very good.”
Azim also explained that he wants to inspire young people in the way Amir Khan and Prince Naseem inspired him when he was a boy.
He added: “A lot of kids are coming up to me, they know who I am.
“It’s good because I’m inspiring the young generation.
“It’s like me looking up to Amir Khan when I was a young kid and now a lot of people are looking up to me. It means a lot.
“I want to entertain them, I want them to get inspired by me as well.”
