Adeleye’s latest assignment will come in the form of Lancashire southpaw Chris Healey, who owns a 9-8 record.

Britain’s latest heavyweight prospect has been a key member of Fury’s training camp for Whyte and was cheered on by the Gypsy King during his open workout on Tuesday afternoon.

Adeleye – who has also trained with former unified heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua – has been tipped by many to make a fast rise up the heavyweight ranks.

Background

Adeleye was born in London in 1996 to Nigerian parents – both of whom didn’t want him to go into professional boxing.

Adeleye began boxing at the tender age of 14, training under Gary McGuiness at the Dale Youth Club and had a plethora of amateur fights before turning pro in December 2019.

During his time as an amateur, Adeleye became Junior ABA champion in 2013 before winning the Senior ABA Novices and Senior ABA titles in 2017 and 2018 respectively.

Physical

The physically imposing Adeleye stands at an impressive 6’4 and tips the scales at a solid 15 stone, 7lbs.

His weight, however, will likely increase in the coming years as he continues to grow into his chiselled frame.

Experience

Adeleye had over 30 amateur fights before his professional debut against Dmitrij Kalinovskij, whom he demolished in just under a round.

The man-mountain has gone on to record a further seven victories, with all but one of those triumphs coming by way of stoppage.

Last year, Adeleye said of one day fighting for the British and Commonwealth titles: “Whichever belt comes first is the one I go for. I’ll take all of them.

“I want to get in the history books as a world heavyweight champion, and deliver some of the biggest fight nights for British boxing.”
