Charlie Edwards will make the first defense of the WBC flyweight title when he faces Angel Moreno on March 23, 2019 at the Copper Box Arena in London.

“Fighting" Charlie Edwards vs Angel Moreno

Edwards won the belt with a major upset of Nicaraguan Cristofer Rosales last December. The Sutton native has won six fights in a row since losing to then IBF flyweight champion Johnriel Casimero in 2016. The 26 year old Edwards is 5-5 and has a reach of 66 inches. He comes to this fight with a record of 14-1 with 6 knockouts.

Odds from bet365 as of 3/06/19

The 35-year old Moreno is a 5-4 ½ orthodox fighter who has a record of 19-2-2 with 6 wins by way of knockout. He’s fought almost exclusively in Spain and will be fighting outside his native country for only the second time in his career. Moreno is a veteran who doesn’t shy away from a firefight but is more of a boxer. He sparred with Edwards when the latter was preparing for his bout with Casimero so both men know what to expect from the other. But Edwards has improved vastly since his only loss and his points win over Rosales proved that. Moreno is a decent boxer but Edwards has a huge upside and could become elite.

The 26 year old Conroy has a record of 16-3-1 with 8 knockouts to his credit. Conroy enters this fight having won his last five bouts via knockout. Conroy has not lost since getting stopped by Cello Randa in 2015. Both men possess punching power and the ability to box. But Buatsi may be too strong, too powerful for Conroy here.

Prediction: Joshua Buatsi by knockout

“Fighting" Lawrence Okolie vs Wadi Camacho

This is a matchup between the British cruiserweight champion Okolie and the Commonwealth title holder Camacho. Former 2016 Olympian Okolie has a record of 11-0 with 8 knockouts. He is also the WBA continental cruiserweight champion and stands 6-5 with a reach of 82 ½ inches.

Odds from bet365 as of 3/06/19

Barcelona-born Camacho won the Commonwealth title last year via technical decision after he dropped Arfan Iqbal and then fell through the ropes and couldn’t continue. The 6-3 southpaw has a record of 21-7 with 12 knockouts. If Camacho wants to slug it out, Okolie has more punching power. If the Spaniard decides to box, the Londoner’s exceptional reach and footwork will earn him the points victory. Either way, it’s Okolie for me.

Prediction: Lawrence Okolie by knockout
