Sunny Edwards is an amazing fighter – a really amazing fighter. IBF flyweight champion Felix Alvarado walked around Sheffield, England, on Friday and was reminiscent of the sport’s famous skirmishers. The 19-0 Edwards never looked like he was in real danger, though the aggressive 38-2 Alvarado undoubtedly had his moments. Suffice it to say, the judges all scored Edwards 115-113, 116-12, and 115-113.
“I’m just trying to test myself every time I’m wrestling,” Edwards said after the game. “Felix Alvarado is an amazing puncher, so if I sit there and mix it up with him and show me that I can drive the shot, shoot and throw my own shot back, I can do it against anybody. He was a very, very hard puncher in there, but I wasn’t going to stop him.”
With Alvarado out of the way, Edwards made it clear that he now looks ahead. “I want big fights,” Edwards said. “Martinez, he’s running scared, Bam Rodriguez, who promised me the next fight, come and get him.
