The Return of Sunny Edwards on Friday

Sunny Edwards will look to defend his IBF flyweight world title, against the very tough Felix Alvarado on Friday night at the Utilita Arena in Sheffield, England.

The 26-year-old flyweight, Sunny Edwards, is believed by many to be the very best in the division and including Probellum president Richard Schaefer.

“His ability to slip punches is at the absolute highest level of any weight class and from a skill point of view, I would rank Sunny Edwards today, in the top five pound-for-pound. That's how good he is,” Richard Schaefer said. “He has the skills which and that will to win, and those qualities, combined with his confidence and his attitude, means he is a tough nut to crack.”

Edwards is unbeaten in 18 fights as a professional and wants to fight Jesse ‘Bam’ Rodriguez in 2023 to prove he is the best flyweight in the world.

“Alvarado was a world champion at the weight below, he has 33 KOs on his record, and he has boxed at the highest level. He’s a big punching Nicaraguan, who has had more knockouts than I’ve had fights and he is hungry for this,” said Sunny Edwards.
