Edwards with title defense No.1

It was one of Britain's greatest boxing successes in 2018, when Charlie Edwards (14-1-0, 6 KOs) dethroned powerful world champion Cristofer Rosales just before Christmas. After he had failed two years earlier at his first attempt, the 26-year-old presented a significant improvement. Now he has to prove that December's performance was not a fluke.

His face is a bit blank with Spaniard Angel Moreno (19-2-2, 6 KOs), but only recently could a compatriot Morenos inflict his first defeat on British Ted Cheeseman, also in London. A bad omen for Edwards? At least the WBC champion 
presented himself in great shape on the scales, so it will not fail in the preparation. Both he and his opponent undercut the weight limit of 50.802 kg.
