Why Bet on Edwards
Edwards is very close to being able to face the best boxers in the world in his class, stars like Julio Cesar Martinez and Bam Rodriguez, but first, he must get past the tricky Felix Alvarado.
A 26-year-old Englishman, Sunny Edwards is a superb boxer, winning his flyweight championship belt by defeating two-time champion Moruti Mthalane in April 2021.
After that, Edwards successfully defended his championship belt twice, first against Jayson Mama and then Muhammad Waseem, winning both bouts by razor-sharp unanimous decision.
Edwards stated in an interview “I have big plans to become the undisputed flyweight world champion and then move up in the weights, and I’m sure that will happen, but there is no room for error against a fighter of Alvarado’s caliber, that’s for sure”.
Why Bet on Alvarado
On the other hand, the Nicaraguan and experienced Felix Alvarado managed to hold the 108-pound division title from 2018 until 2022, when he decided to the 112-pound division.
Alvarado made his flyweight debut last May when he achieved a very good victory against Luis Cerrito Hernandez in 4 rounds.
The Nicaraguan comes into this fight with 38 wins to his credit, of which 33 have been by knockout, and he only has 2 defeats, which were in 2013 against Japan’s Kazuto Ioka for the WBA flyweight world title and in 2014 against Argentina’s Juan Carlos Reveco for the 112-pound world title.
After these two defeats, Alvarado accumulates an extraordinary streak of 20 consecutive victories.
Final Betting Analysis: Sunny Edwards vs. Felix Alvarado
Edwards has been known for having a very tough fight that tends to tire his opponents.
Alvarado is a much more physical fighter, stronger than Edwards. If we look at the statistics, we see that 87% of his victories have been by knockout. While only 23% of Edwards’ victories have been by knockout.
Edwards comes into this fight as the big favorite to win with a betting odd of -500, while the Nicaraguan is the underdog in this fight with +306.
Both boxers come into this fight with a lot of confidence and, above all, respect, so we expect it to be a very tactical fight from start to finish. However, with home-ground advantage, age, and agility as his main weapons, we believe the Englishman will defend his title.
Look for a straight win on the Moneyline Sunny Edwards. If you put $100 on Edwards at -500, you’ll be looking at a $20 win with a total payout of $120.
