Edwards faces tricky defence against dangerman Martinez,

★★★★☆ EDWARDS-MARTINEZ

★★★★☆ REST OF THE CARD

THE bad news for Charlie Edwards is that his latest WBC flyweight title defence, on the undercard of the big O2 show in Greenwich on Saturday (August 31), is against the man who in his last fight knocked out Andrew Selby.

The good news for Edwards is that said challenger, Julio Cesar Martinez, beat Welsh wizard Selby on home turf in Mexico and has yet to box outside his native land as a professional.

Fighting in front of your own fans doesn’t guarantee victory, but it doesn’t hurt either.
