SUNNY EDWARDS expects Lee McGregor to hit new heights now he has joined forces with him in Sheffield at the Steel City Gym. McGregor will begin his new partnership with Grant Smith this Saturday (May 18) in Glasgow on the undercard of Josh Taylor’s IBF super-lightweight challenge against Ivan Baranchyk at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow.

Edwards, who is impressing at super-flyweight, has known McGregor since the pair met in the GB finals in 2015, with McGregor coming out on top and they have remained friends ever since with Edwards advising the Scot to join him in Sheffield, after he decided to leave trainer Shane McGuigan.

The 23-year-old as well as supporting McGregor, is also looking to build on his growing reputation and is likely to return in June or July, where he could well fight on the undercard of Daniel Dubois and Nathan Gorman’s anticipated clash for the British heavyweight title.
