Outspoken flyweight Sunny Edwards is heading up the world ratings and looking for big fights. He speaks to John Dennen

“SHE could have given birth, and I would have been sparring Louis Norman.” It has been a tumultuous time in the life of Sunny Edwards. Only 23 years old, and he looks even younger, he has become a father, risen in his professional career to headline TV shows and he hopes to advance far enough up the world rankings to challenge for a major title sooner rather than later.
