Hamza Shiraz vs. Jazz Smith

OVO Arena, Wembley, London, England – March 19, 2022

KHAMZA SHIRAZ BELIEVES that he will benefit from the hardships of his last fight if he steps into the middleweight division on March 19 at OVO Arena, Wembley.

Hamza with a score of 14-0 found himself in the eyes of a storm in December at the Copper Box when he was stripped of a point for hitting Bradley Skeet when he was dropped during a fight that changed momentum and led to the first British heavyweight champion eventually being stopped in the ninth round.

By his own admission, the 22-year-old from Ilford admitted that he was not in the game tonight, but was announced by a conversation with veteran coach Joe Goosen, who has returned to the California sun to begin preparations for a meeting at Wembley in middleweight. against Jazz Smith.

“Looking back on it now, I immediately realize it wasn’t a very good performance,” Hamza admitted in an interview with Dev Sani at Unibet Lowdown. “I was talking about it with Joe Gusen when I came back here about two weeks ago, and he asked me what I learned from it.

“I told him what I had done and he said such a fight would bring me peace and it was the equivalent of about 10 easy knockout fights. He said that with what I learned, I would be a different person in my next fight.

“It wasn’t my best performance, everyone knows it, but I won and now I’m moving forward.”

Another learning experience for the still young specialist was a storm of criticism that headed his way after his illegal maneuver against the Scythians. Hamza formally offered his defeated opponent a rematch, but there was no acceptance, and now he continues to fulfill his plan to play in the next division.

“At first everything was like crazy! I think it helped me – not that I need help because I have pretty oily skin – it’s that I know everyone has an opinion and everyone has a right to their opinion.

“It helped me understand where it was coming from. It’s part of boxing, and I’m glad it happened early in my career, not later, because with this adversity I can learn and become a better fighter and a better person.

“All I know is that [a rematch] was rejected. I said I would earn 154 pounds again if he took a rematch because it was fair. I always intended to move up, and here we are now. ”
