Julio Cesar Martinez is Pumped To Face Charlie Edwards

Flyweight contender Julio Cesar "El Rey" Martinez of Mexico is very proud to have won the opportunity to fight with British boxer Charlie Edwards, who is currently the flyweight champion of the World Boxing Council.

Last week, Martinez attended the traditional weekly meeting held by the head of the World Boxing Council, Mauricio Sulaiman, which this time was chaired by journalist and historian Victor Cota León. Martinez did not hide the pride in facing an opponent like Edwards, whom he described as an experienced and excellent technician, whom he hopes to face shortly, in any venue.

"I am willing to enter the home of the champion in order to achieve my goal ... I know I will be facing an extremely complicated opponent, but I am hungry for glory and I will achieve it," Martinez said.


"El Rey" Martínez came to win a spectacular victory by way of technical knockout against undefeated Brit Andrew Selby, last Saturday in Metepec, State of Mexico, and this knockout victory placed him one step away from conquering the green and gold belt.

"I learned a lot from this fight ... to move my waist and legs more to be able to break down an opponent of the quality of the current WBC flyweight champion," Martinez said.

For his part, Edwards, via phone, congratulated Martínez, and said he was proud of having him as a challenger, "I saw his fight and he is a warrior like all Mexicans, without a doubt, this will be a war," he said.

When questioned about the date and venue of the fight, he replied that he still does not know anything, "I think it could be in London, but, I could go anywhere ... I'll be in front of a tremendous fighter, it will be a very complicated fight," sentenced the current WBC champion.
