CHARLIE EDWARDS eased to the first defence of his WBC flyweight title by earning a unanimous decision victory over Spain’s Angel Moreno at the Copper Box Arena in London.

Just three months after unexpectedly winning it from Cristofer Rosales, the 26-year-old further enhanced his reputation to remain in contention for the higher-profile fights that will define his reign as champion.

He consistently outclassed his limited challenger, hurting him throughout and securing an eighth-round knockdown to make the three ringside judges’ scores of 120-107 almost inevitable.
