Charlie Edwards
Former World Champion

This is Sunny Edwards' toughest fight, make no mistake. Fact. This is the best versus the best, and you don't get any bigger than this!

I just don't think 'Bam' Rodriguez is going to have ever met anybody quite like Sunny. His elusiveness, his unique style and his confidence.

Sunny is so special, he's like Floyd Mayweather - I've been saying it for years. He wins this fight.

Liam Smith
Former World Champion

At the moment, they are two world champions who are right in their prime.

When this fight was initially made I fancied 'Bam' Rodriguez, but after his last fight, I just feel as though his confidence is shot a little bit, and Sunny Edwards' confidence is through the roof.

Sunny is tough to beat anyway, but he has that bit of invincibility to him now with his confidence, so I'm now leaning towards him winning this fight.

Dave Coldwell
Boxing Trainer

Sunny Edwards is somebody who just not care about anybody's reputation! He fears nobody or nothing.

Sunny isn't going to go forward, he will invite 'Bam' on to him, frustrate him, mug him off and keep popping him. He will probably win the fight on points, just as he usually does.

Johnny Nelson
Boxing Pundit

Listen, Sunny Edwards is the most underrated world champion out there; he is a proper don!

He sleeps and breaths boxing. He's such a clever and articulate boxer. When you are talking the fight game, the knowledge he has is incredible.

Sunny Edwards wins this fight; don't even ask me the question. It's a done deal!

I have been a massive 'Bam' Rodriguez fan for years, but there's one person who can beat him and that's Sunny Edwards.

The smart thing with Sunny is that he knows he isn't a power-puncher, so he doesn't try and punch too hard - he does his stuff, gets in and out and gets the win!

Darren Barker
Boxing Pundit

Sunny Edwards, on the back foot, the way he can move those feet and shimmy one way and the other, feint left and right, he can make you look silly, and almost make you fall through the ropes.

'Bam' on the other hand, likes to fight on the front foot, skips either left or right, just like Vassily Lomachenko, looking to create those angles. He also has the better power too. 

This is a toss of a coin fight...

Fabio Wardley
Professional Boxer

I'm definitely leaning towards Sunny Edwards. He's got the better skills, for me, and he's also got the better experience. Plus he's a British fighter and I will always back a fellow Brit, no matter who it was.

Both fighters have been vocal, Sunny has been calling for this fight for ages, and I'm just so happy that this fight has been made.
