Sunny Edwards vs. Jayson Mama Postponed
Sunny Edwards has had to withdraw from his planned IBF flyweight title defence against Jayson Mama this weekend due to injury.
Edwards was due to put his title on the line against Mama on a Queensberry Promotions show at the Copper Box Arena in London on Saturday, live on BT Sport.
Unfortunately, Edwards has suffered an ankle injury ahead of the fight, and the world title bout is no longer able to go ahead this weekend.
Edwards said: “I’m gutted that my fight on Saturday is off. I will have a rescheduled date ASAP. I want to apologise firstly to my opponent Jayson & his team, as I understand the frustration they must be feeling, secondly to Frank Warren & BT as my homecoming was set to be the biggest night of my career.
“Finally everyone who was looking forward to my first world title defence. I am genuinely devastated but with the advice from those close to me, it would have been a poor error of judgement risking the position I’m in now and fighting whilst not 100%.”
Further news on a rescheduled date for the bout between Edwards and Mama will be released in due course.
