Edwards Decisions Campos, Scotney Becomes Champ, and Hughes Easily Dominates

IBF flyweight champion Sunny “Showtime” Edwards (20-0, 4KO) easily retained the title against challenger Andres Campos (15-1, 4KO) by unanimous decision.

What Edwards lacks in power, he makes up for it in sheer boxing ability. Showtime’s movement, counterpunching, and defense were on point early in the fight. He used angles and feints to set traps in getting Campos to commit before unloading sharp counter-shots to the body and chin.

As the fight continued, Campos was finding success with the right hand and uppercuts as Edwards elected to lean on the ropes. In the sixth round, the fighter from Chile turned up the pressure with body shots.

When it looked as if Campos was going to turn the fight around, Edwards stopped leaning on the ropes and went back to boxing by landing counter shots and body shots, closing out the fight strong.

All three judges’ scorecards were 117-111 for the IBF champion. Immediately following the decision, Edwards looked dead into the camera and called out WBO champion Jesse “Bam” Rodriguez.


In a fight where both fighters share a history stemming from the amateurs, Ellie Scotney (7-0) fulfilled a dream of becoming a world champion with a victory over rival Cherneka Johnson (15-2, 6KO).

Scotney started by going to the body with the jab before landing the right hand down the middle. This was the story of the contest early as Scotney’s head movement rendered Johnson’s superior jab ineffective. Moreover, She used angles to avoid punches from the champion before ripping off a flurry of three or four unanswered shots.

Johnson, who suffered a cut above the right eye from a headbutt in round six, finally came alive toward the end behind a strong jab and counter right hands. However, Scotney was not to be denied and turned up the work-rate with body shots and counter right hands.

The judge’s scorecards were 98-92, 98-92, and 97-93 in favor of the new IBF world champion. 3Kings Boxing saw it 96-94 for Scotney with one swing round.


WBA bantamweight champion Nina Hughes (6-0, 2KO) successfully retained the title by outworking Katie Healy (6-1).

Similar to what she did in the fight against former champion Jamie Mitchell in 2022, Hughes was like a Tasmanian devil, throwing a flurry of fast combinations that kept the challenger on the backfoot. She controlled all four criteria of judging: clean punching, effective aggression, defense, and ring generalship, early in the fight.

Hughes refused to allow Healy’s height and reach advantage to become a factor in the fight. However, Healy started finding a rhythm for the jab in the later rounds. But the experienced WBA champion regained control with pressure and the straight right, which was money the entire fight.

Two judges scored it 100-90, with one judge seeing it 99-91 in favor of Hughes. 3Kings Boxing agrees with the shutout scorecards. After the fight, the champion called for a unification against IBF champion Ebanie Bridges, who was in attendance.
