CHARLIE EDWARDS wants to “build a legacy” after making the first defence of his WBC flyweight title by outclassing Spain’s Angel Moreno at the Copper Box Arena in London.

The 26-year-old produced his finest performance to date to win all 12 rounds on each of the three ringside judges’ scorecards, earning a unanimous decision via scores of 120-107 having also knocked Moreno down in the eighth.

Wales’ promising Andrew Selby lost when he fought to become his mandatory challenger against Julio Cesar Martinez Aguilar in Mexico later on Saturday evening, but potential opponent Kal Yafai, the WBA super flyweight champion, would prove high-profile domestic rivals.
