Sunny Edwards v Jayson Mama Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions

Sunny Edwards will be looking to extend his unbeaten record to 17-0 when he defends his IBF flyweight belt for the first time on Saturday.

The 25-year-old won his first major world title when he beat Moruti Mthalane on points at York Hall. Mthalane came into the fight on a 16-fight winning streak, and he was totally outclassed by Edwards who was the underdog for that bout.

He certainly didn’t perform like an underdog – Sunny Edwards has an amazing future ahead of him, and I cannot see him having too many problems against Jayson Mama.

Edwards is a talented fighter. He is not a knockout merchant, but he does pack a punch even at flyweight.

He has won his last five fights by unanimous decision. He has the stamina to go the distance, which is a great quality because a lot of fighters prefer to go for the knockout rather than endurance.

Mama is also undefeated with 16 wins under his belt, but he has never faced anyone as quick and tough as Edwards.

His last fight saw him defeat Romshane Sarguilla when his opponent was forced to retire.

I have already mentioned that Edwards is not a massive puncher in terms of knockouts. He only has four knockout wins to his name, while Mama has knocked out nine of his opponents.

If Mama goes for the early knockout, I feel he will run out of steam. Edwards is too clever to get involved in an all-out brawl. He will take his time and box sensibly before taking the decision on points.

Sunny Edwards v Jayson Mama Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions: Fighter’s Predictions

Jayson Mama: “Mthalane was old. Edwards was running all night. I hope he doesn’t run when he fights me, but I think he will run from me. Edwards is a great boxer, but I have trained really hard to bring back the belt to the Philippines. I will be a World champion on September 11.”
