Charlie Edwards vs. Julio Cesar Martinez

12 rounds, for Edwards' WBC flyweight title

Charlie Edwards was indeed very impressive when he upset then WBC Champion Christopher Rosales in a fight many was picking him to lose. He was in phenomenal shape and the speed and accuracy was something Rosales simply couldn’t handle that night. In his last outing, Edwards fought Angel Moreno and won a shutout 12 round decision. His opponent on saturday night Julio Cesar Martinez only has one loss on his resume which came a few years back. In his last fight he beat Andrew Selby by a 5th round knockout. That was by far his best performance ever.

Martinez win over Selby was indeed impressive but styles makes fights and the qualities that Edwards has going for him will see him to a victory in this bout. He is simply to fast and accurate for the mexican puncher. In Martinez previous bouts, he has shown a granite chin and it is likely this fight goes the distance. The Pick is Charlie Edwards to win
