Sunny Edwards returns to the fray on Friday to defend his IBF flyweight championship against Felix Alvarado at the Sheffield Arena in Sheffield, England.
Edwards (18-0, 4 KOs) wrenched the title from long-reigning champ Moruti Mthalane (UD 12) in April 2021. It was a career-best performance and the talented Englishman followed up with a pair of dominant unanimous decision wins over Jayson Mama and Muhammad Waseem.
Many expect Nicaraguan destroyer Felix Alvarado, 33, to provide the slippery Edwards with the most difficult test of his career to date. A former IBF junior flyweight champ, Alvarado has an eye-popping record of 38-2 (33 KOs) and he is unbeaten over the past eight years.
The 26-year-old Edwards has long pursued a clash against WBC counterpart Julio Cesar Martinez. Should he prevail against Alvarado, then a unification matchup against the Mexican brawler may finally come to fruition.
