IBF flyweight champion Moruti Mthalane (39-3, 26 KOs) dropped a twelve round unanimous decision and lost his title to elusive challenger Sunny Edwards (16-0, 4 KOs) on Friday night at York Hall in London. The 38-year-old Mthalane, who has been unbeaten since 2008, had difficulty reaching Edwards, who stayed out of range and swatted him with light punches all night. Scores were 118-111, 120-108, 115-113.

  • A brilliant performance and almost flawless by Sunny Edwards over the champion Mthalane. Time has caught up with the champ, off 16 months, and at 38. Edwards brother Charlie is a former world champ. I look forward to Edwards and Philly’s Steph Fulton in Sept or end of the year. I had it 119-109.

  • My error, it is Michael Conlan who won the co-feature who is lined up to fight Fulton. He did quite well in a good fight defeating Ionut Baluta in a good competitive fight for the WBO International title. Conlan is unbeaten and looking for the match with Fulton for his title.
