Tony Yoka and Carlos Takam headlined a Boxxer card in Paris, France, on March 11, 2023, as they both tried to get back to winning ways in a French Darby.
Yoka suffered his first career loss to Martin Bakole when he was in action last time in May 2022. Carlos Takam, a much more experienced boxer, had been on the losing side in his last two bouts against Joe Joyce and Arslanbek Makhmudov. Which Frenchman earned the bragging rights here?
In the co-main event, Dan Azeez and Thomas Faure clashed over European Light Heavyweight Championship in a 12-round bout. Azeez won the British and Commonwealth titles when he was in action in December against Rocky Fielding. Faure remained unbeaten since 2018 despite fighting mostly in France. Was Azeez able to get his winning run going and add another title to his waist?
