Croydon boxer Sunny Edwards signs new promotional deal

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Sunny Edwards has signed a contract extension with Queensbury Promotions.

The Croydon super-flyweight defends his WBO European title against fighter Pedro Matos at The SSE Arena, Wembley on April 27.

His Portuguese opponent has won seven of his eight bouts but has only boxed once since a stoppage lose to Juan Hinostroza in late 2017.

Edwards said: “Ideally, I would like some domestic names on my record but can’t see them happening anytime too soon – we looked at the Jay Harris fight but he’s now going for the European title.

“We also looked at Tommy Frank, he’s just won the Commonwealth and I thought it would make sense with the British title vacant, he brings his Commonwealth and I bring my WBO International and European titles. We tried making that, he wasn’t interested.

“There is also Paddy Barnes, but he isn’t going to fight me.

“The annoying thing about these fighters are that they’re too content on taking these four or six rounders for too long for my liking. I was only 3 and 0 and I was asking to be pushed towards title fights.”
