Undefeated Chilean flyweight Andres Campos (15-1, 6KO) wants to create history by becoming his country’s first world champion when he locks horns with reigning IBF ruler Sunny Edwards (19-0, 4KO) at the OVO Arena Wembley this Saturday night.
Edwards, 27 from Croydon, is set to make his eagerly anticipated Matchroom debut, having penned a promotional deal with Eddie Hearn in March, but Campos – who has been calling Edwards out for over a year – plans on spoiling the party after finally landing his dream world title shot.
26-year-old Campos, who is managed by Australian Tony Tolj and trained by Hernan Gauto from Argentina and Nicolas Orellana from Chile, is ranked IBF #7 and has held the WBO Latino Flyweight strap since March 2020. ‘The Pride of Barnechea’ says he also has the backing of UK fans who want to see Edwards defeated for the first time.
Edwards: “I’m fighting Andres Campos from Chile and outside of him and his fans, abusing me on Instagram for the last however many years, I don’t really know too much about him. I don’t really care about knowing too much about him. When I get in there it’s the Sunny show. It’s showtime, and there’s not time like showtime. When I get in there, it’s whatever I want it to be. I don’t focus on him. I don’t need to talk about him."
Campos: “Sunny Edwards has never fought against anyone like me. I am by far the best opponent that he will have faced. I have lots of experience fighting against and defeating undefeated guys from both the amateurs and pros. I am so hungry to win this World Title and make history for Chile.
“Sunny Edwards is good, but he is not good enough to beat me. I know that I am better than him and I will show you all on Saturday night. I have three scenarios: scenario A, B and C. We have trained so hard for each one. Sunny won’t be able to run away from me like a dancer. He is just dancing and running all the time. I will send him to sleep before the twelfth round.
“Chile doesn’t have any World Champions and I will make history for my country and my continent of South America. I will be the first one.
“Fighting in the UK for the first time as a professional doesn’t faze me at all. As a pro I have fought in Australia and in Argentina. It is not such a big change for me. Remember, I have done almost all of my 95 fights outside of my country. I have represented Chile all over the world. I don’t feel the pressure.
“Since I arrived in the UK last week, everyone that I have met in the gyms, malls and streets – everyone has told me that I have to beat that trash talker Sunny Edwards. Everyone that talks to me about Sunny Edwards wants me to beat him. They all want me to become the first man to beat him.
“It’s crazy – nobody cares about Sunny Edwards here in England. I have the support of Chilean fans and all of the English fans who I have met. Everyone on my social media is telling me that I have to beat this clown.”
Tim Rickson, BBN Editor: “I have known of Andres Campos for a while now, as I am in touch with his manager Tony Tolj regularly. He is sharp as a tack, fast hands, varies atacks from head to body, and I can see him giving Sunny some problems. He is fully motivated, aiming to make history for his country, so if Sunny wins it will be an undeniable, impressive victory. Neither man has much power, but Campos has scored two KOs in his last four fights, both times with body shots in the fourth round. Sunny's last stoppage win was over four years ago, in 2019. I think everyone will be expecting Sunny to box smart and slick to get the decision on the cards, but I wouldn't rule out the challenger's chances of getting a stoppage because his body shots are so accurate. If he lands one to the ribs, it will do some damage. However, Sunny's speed and movement is simply sublime and Campos will not have come across these level of skills before in any of his 95 fights. This is a big jump up in levels for Campos, so although he has looked good in his fights, he hasn't operated at world level yet. He can jab well, but likes to fight at mid to shor range, so he will be looking to get in close, which is easier said than done with Edwards. In Sunny's last fight with Felix Alvarado, he lingered on the ropes a bit too much, so if Campos is able to land one of his body shots on the inside then he has real chance of causing the upset. However, I believe the most likely scenario is an Edwards unanimous decision win.”
