Sunny Edwards’ Boxing Odds & Betting Outlook vs Waseem
Edwards looks to make the sophomore defense of his crown here.
He is ranked number three in the world at this weight category, and many see him as having the potential to vault to that number one spot.
An Edwards win here will, in all likelihood, net him a title unification bout against WBC champion Julio Cesar Martinez by all accounts.
A victory here is obviously paramount to preserving that plan for Edwards’ goals to cementing himself as a unified titleholder.

Edwards recalls sparring Waseem for a few rounds many years ago.
A time when Edwards said he wasn’t taking boxing too seriously, wasn’t seventy percent of the fighter he is now, and he seemingly has an emboldened sense of confidence from those sessions leading into this one.
Muhammad Waseem’s Boxing Odds and Betting Outlook vs Edwards
Waseem is making his second attempt at capturing a world title. His lone professional defeat came in that UD loss to Mthalane and was for the then-vacant IBF crown.
Vying for this same title at 112 pounds is likely adding a redemptive component to this one for Waseem. Someone who is riding a four-fight winning streak since that prior crack at the belt.
The KO rate of Waseem is far more notable, but the question is can the challenger connect with those types of shots on Edwards?
The defensively savvy and offensively responsible nature of the champion’s style causes those question marks to pop up prominently ahead of this one.
