Charlie Edwards Gives Brother Sunny Words of Encouragement

World champion Charlie Edwards has assured his WBO European champion brother Sunny that he can turn his recent injury disappointment into a positive.
Unbeaten Sunny (10-0-KO3) suffered ruptured ankle ligaments in his recent victory over Junior Granados but Charlie believes the rehabilitation process can also be used to take stock and adopt a more measured approach to his rise.

Charlie, who was beaten in his first world title bout by John Riel Casimero after just eight professional fights, said: “As you saw with me and the Casimero fight, I rushed everything.
“Sunny doesn’t have to rush things the way I did. He’s only 22 and he can step by step his way all the way to the top, winning every title along the way.
“Sunny and I are always there for each other through thick and thin. We are a pair and we push each other. There’s healthy competition and we know we’ve got 120% support from each other.
“His injury got me down and I had to speak to him and tell him it could be a blessing in disguise. He’s gone massive in those last few fights and sometimes it’s good to slow down.”
Charlie Edwards rebuilt after the 2016 defeat to Casimero and fulfilled a childhood dream when he outpointed Cristofer Rosales to claim the WBC flyweight crown in December.

As far as I'm concerned Sunny's ready for British, Commonwealth & the proper EBU European title's!
