Sunny Edwards (16-0) returns from injury to make the first defense of his IBF world flyweight title. The Brit was last seen in April this year when he defeated Moruti Mthalane in impressive fashion to take his first world title, but it will be a tough task to return to the ring against Jayson Mama, and Edwards will have to rely on breaking down his opponent rather than stopping the fight early as he has only managed four knockouts in his 16 fights to date.
Jayson Mama (16-0) has an identical win-loss record to defending champion Sunny Edwards, but the Filipino boasts a superior KO percentage and hopes that will be the difference between the two. However, the 24-year-old fighter faces the toughest fight of his career in what is his first world title opportunity, and with his last three opponents entering their respective fights with Mama sporting a combined record of 30-22-3, this step up in class could be too much for Mama.
Sunny Edwards will return to the ring after a lengthy injury absence and will have the opportunity to defend the International Boxing Federation (IBF) flyweight world title he won in his last bout. Edwards does not possess great power, which is not surprising in this weight division, but his technical ability is superb and that will be the key to beating Jayson Mama. The Filipino is also undefeated, but his lack of quality opposition will likely cause him to fall out of favor and Edwards will be able to retain his crown.
Prediction: Sunny Edwards to win by decision/technical decision
