SHEFFIELD-based super-flyweight Sunny Edwards will look to continue his rich vein of form, as he takes on Hiram Gallardo for the vacant IBF International title at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday (July 13), on the undercard of Daniel Dubois and Nathan Gorman’s eagerly awaited clash for the British heavyweight crown.

Edwards moved to 11-0, picking up his fourth stoppage win in the process, as he breezed past Pedro Matos in eight rounds in April and move into the top five in the WBO’s rankings.

Now, he looks to move into a similar position with the IBF, as he plots the best route to a world title, although the 23-year-old is anticipating a tough night with Gallardo, who will have no intention of making up the numbers at the O2.
