Edwards to defend against Mama

IBF flyweight champion Sunny Edwards (16-0, 4 KOs) will make the first defense of his title against unbeaten mandatory challenger Jayson Mama (16-0, 9 KOs) on September 11 at the Copper Box Arena in London. Sunny returns just over four months after his dethroning Muruti Mthalane. Mama stepped aside to allow that fight to happen.

  • Edwards needs to be careful… I heard that Mama just killed a man….

  • I give the IBF some credit because they, more than any other organization, hold people to mandatories. In the past 3-4 years, they’ve stripped both Canelo and GGG. They’re really important to them. But then you look at some of the fighters who they do have as mandatories – like the Thai fighter who Josh Taylor stopped inside a round last year, Pulev, Szeremata and Dasmarinas who Inoue beat last time out were all completely hopeless IBF #1 ranked fighters.
