Martinez is going to be coming hard and fast from early on to try and put me under pressure, but I believe my boxing skills and the experience that I’ve gained throughout my short pro career will see me through.

Prediction

Oskar Gundersen
Who will win: Edwards or Martinez Aguilar?

We are waiting for an interesting fight between two young boxers.
Martinez has 14 victories, 11 of them by knockout. There is one defeat in his professional career, but this was his first fight in 2015. All the time he boxed only in Mexico and now he is going to the UK to win the world champion title.
Edwards is a little older than the Mexican, but he is the current world champion and this is his third defense of the championship title. In the best traditions of British boxing, he is not afraid to box at close range, he is also doing well with endurance, but he does not have a strong blow.

If Martinez cannot knock out Edwards in the opening rounds, then the Briton will hold out until the end and win the fight on points.
