Sunny Edwards v Adrian Curiel - Tale of the Tape: Weight, height, reach, trainer & professional boxing records

The leap from world-class to elite proved to be too much for Sunny Edwards when he faced Jesse ‘Bam’ Rodriguez in December.

Keen to test himself against the very best - instead of challenges where the motivation might be lacking - Edwards needed to show different sides to him that we hadn’t seen before particularly as the fight slipped away from his grasp.

Defeat to one of the finest fighters in the world is no disgrace, but on Sunday 30th June, Edwards must prove against Mexico’s Adrian Curiel that he still belongs at the top table of the flyweight division.

Ahead of the fight, it's time to check out the 'Tale of the Tape'…

Sunny Edwards could easily have opted to vacate his IBF flyweight title last December, and dropped down or moved up a weight class seeking fresh opportunities.

Instead, he chose to unify the division against a potential all-time great in Jesse ‘Bam’ Rodriguez.

Taking risks is becoming the new-norm in boxing, thankfully, with fighters willing to roll the dice in a bid for greatness and be rewarded handsomely for their efforts.

Edwards has vowed to come again and would love nothing more than the opportunity to share the ring with Rodriguez for a second time later this year or early next.

For now though, patience is a must, and taking on Adrian Curiel in Phoenix - where Rodriguez headlines against Juan Francisco Estrada - will reveal where the career of Edwards is heading.

On paper, Curiel appears to be made to order for Edwards, with his typically Mexican come forward style, but if there is a hangover from the Rodriguez loss then it could be another uncomfortable night for the British man.

The reputation of Adrian Curiel soared past the supercars of Monte Carlo when he defeated Sivenathi Nontshinga to become IBF world light-flyweight champion.

His win in the principality not only earned him a spot in the running for upset of the year, but knockout of the year, too.

That dynamite right hand, which flattened the South Africa in round two, couldn’t be repeated during their rematch in Mexico earlier this year, however.

Instead, Nontshinga withstood onslaughts to turn the tables and avenge that loss by stopping the champion in the tenth round.

Those two contrasting moments for Curiel have seen his stock reach new heights and become a must-watch fighter.

He is rightly placed as the betting underdog in this contest though.

There's no doubting the fact that the superior skillset lies with Edwards but the favourite’s ego could see him fall into the type of scrap that Curiel wants.

The pace of the fight will be crucial as will the fitness levels of both, and, if Curiel keeps missing with his shots he may fade down the stretch.
