Jesse Rodriguez vs Sunny Edwards: preview

Two standout flyweights face off in a division-defining world title unification bout at the Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona today, with Jesse "Bam" Rodriguez (18-0) putting his WBO title on the line and Sunny "Showtime" Edwards (20-0) laying down his IBF belt.

Having only secured the belt in April (after vacating the WBC super flyweight title, which he successfully defended twice, in order to move up a weight class), this marks 23-year-old Rodriguez's maiden title defence at flyweight. What he lacks in experience, however, he makes up for with frightening physicality.

The American southpaw has developed a reputation as an ultra-attack minded aggressor, and he wields a massive 7-inch reach advantage over his opponent, which could prove pivotal for a multitude of reasons.

Edwards is a point-scoring master whose key strengths are ducking punches and striking on the counter, but both will prove supremely difficult against a fighter who's the boxing equivalent of Mister Fantastic. Get caught on the inside and Rodriguez, who's knocked out 60% of his opponents, also has the power to deck him.

Edwards' 20% knockout percentage, which can best be described as modest, is a direct product of his gameplan, but if Plan A doesn't work the 27-year-old Brit doesn't really have a Plan B to fall back on. You don't keep hold of a world title for more than two years and defend it four times without having something about you, but against Rodriguez today he's going to have to be perfect.
