Fight verdict

Sunny Edwards is Britain's unknown world champion, but he will start to put that right when making his first appearance after signing for Eddie Hearn's Matchroom promotions as he defends his IBF flyweight crown on Saturday.
Unbeaten and with a 19-0 record, Edwards will make his fourth straight defence of the 112lbs title against the unbeaten Chilean Andres Campos (15-0).
Edwards may not be a household name, but his credentials are there for all to see and Hearn believes he could be Britain's best pound-for-pound boxer.

The 27-year-old Edwards, who is making a voluntary defence and he claims Campos was the best unbeaten, available fighter out there.

Not that 5ft 3in Edwards holds too much regard for his younger opponent, telling talkSPORT: "I don't care about my opponent, especially not a 26-year-old who has never stepped foot out of Chile and has never been in a 12-round fight."

Edwards looks to unify flyweight division

The Brit will go after bigger fish and look to unify the division, but first he must get past Campos. However, at 1/33, the oddsmakers think it's a done deal.
The Londoner won his flyweight world title with an impressive destruction of Moruti Mthalane in April 2021. It was a masterful performance from Edwards of hitting and not getting hit and one judge scored it a whitewash.
Since becoming world champion, Edwards has posted three successful title defenses against Jayson Mama, Muhammad Waseem and Felix Alvarado. He therefore looks more than capable of getting past Campos.
Edwards was in control of his last fight against Alvarado in November. He won a unanimous points decision in Sheffield after building up a big lead in the first half of the fight.
The Brit beat Alvarado on the front foot as well as catching and countering his older opponent, whom Edwards claimed was a 'phenomenal puncher'.
Edwards never looked like getting Alvarado out of there and with just four knockouts on his record, he usually does his business over 12 rounds.

Campos: Edwards has never fought against anyone like me

His last knockout was in 2019 against Pedro Matas at Wembley Arena, but Edwards expects his rival to bring a "threat" and that could leave the Chilean wide open.
Campos has arrived talking the talk: "Sunny Edwards has never fought against anyone like me." However, flicking through Campos' record, it's hard to make a case for the 26-year-old, who like Edwards, has four knockout victories.
He has never gone 12 rounds before and has no experience fighting in Europe, while his last opponent was a 37-year-old journeyman who was knocked down twice in the fourth round.
Campos has worked his way through the ranks claiming WBA and WBO regional titles, notably beating former world title challengers Jesus Silvestre and Gilberto Pedroza. But there's no doubt this is a step up for the South American, who is not regarded as a big puncher.

Another 12-round win on points is what the bookies expect, but at 2/11 it's a far from attractive proposition. Instead, it may just be worth backing the fight to be over inside the distance,

Edwards, who is adaptable, might be too classy for his opponent and with no experience at 12 rounds, the challenger may look to come and make a statement, leave his chin up in the air and end up on his backside.
