Sunny Edwards Looks To Prove His Superiority At Flyweight Against Andres Campos


Sunny “Showtime” Edwards (19-0, 4 KOs) makes the fourth defense of the IBF flyweight title on June 10 against Andres Campos (15-0, 4 KOs) at Wembley Arena in London, England. The defending champion views the matchup against Campos as another opportunity to prove that he’s above the rest as the best in the division.

It’s the Matchroom debut for the defending champion, who signed a multi-fight deal with the promotional powerhouse in March 2023. The fight with Campos is on only seven weeks’ notice. But Edwards has a stay-ready mindset. With the chance to be the main event on DAZN, the IBF champion accepted without batting an eye.

BELIEVING HE’S THE BEST

Edwards is a fighter with an extremely high value on himself and his abilities. Speaking to Matchroom, the 27-year-old resident of London felt that no one is on par with him at 112 pounds.

“I’m the number-one flyweight in the world. I would argue that I’m one of the best fighters in the world. I’m Sunny “Showtime” Edwards, IBF flyweight champion and the best flyweight in the world.”

The IBF champion would love to back his words by engaging in unification fights and fighting the elites in the division. But attempts to make those bouts happen have been difficult. Edwards was not shy about voicing his displeasure about the business of boxing.

“The fact that with professional boxing, you can’t force someone in the ring with you, and they can go around marauding a belt . . . I’m fighting, I’m existing in a space where I think I’m the best.

Anyone that has any sort of argument for that, I want to see them next. So, I can’t get fed to the wolves. I am the wolf. I am the top of the tree.”

Until Edwards gets that opportunity to prove he’s the best, he must stay active and handle fighters like Campos. It’s what he plans to do on June 10 in an emphatic manner.

“When I get in there, it’s the Sunny show, and it’s Showtime. There’s no time like Showtime. So, when I get in there, it’s whatever I want it to be.”
