Lerrone “Sniper the Boss” Richards and Sunny Edwards both captured WBO European titles in their respective weight classes last night. The men were fighting on a Frank Warren dinner show at London's Grange St Paul's Hotel, in aid of the charity DEBRA, which helps those afflicted with debilitating skin condition EB.
Richards took on Scotland's Rhys Pagan over ten rounds for the WBO european super middleweight title, and took a decisive unanimous decision. The three cards read 91-99, 91-99, 92-98, which made Richards the new champion and now 10-0 (3). Pagan drops to 14-5 (3), but by from report gave a good account of himself, taking all the classy Richards threw at him.
Sunny Edwards, former GB star and brother of world title challenger Charlie, won the WBO European super flyweight title with an impressive technical knockout of also unbeaten (going in) Ross Murray. Murray, now 6-1 (1) was down prior to the stoppage, which came in round 4. Edwards is now 6-0 (2) and charging up a burgeoning division domestically.
With concepts such as Superfly and Superfly2, the lighter weights are due a lot more exposure than they might have previously been used to, which is a great indicator of boxing's current magnetism. Hopefully the British contingent can make a meaningful and lasting impression on the world stage.
Congratulations to both Lerrone and Sunny on their wins.
