Edwards unanimously keeps WBC flyweight title

LONDON — Charlie Edwards retained his WBC flyweight title by beating former sparring partner Angel Moreno by unanimous decision on Saturday at the Copper Box Arena.

Edwards’ first defense of the belt he won from Cristofer Rosales three months ago was easier than expected in his home ring. Edwards outclassed his Spanish challenger to win all 12 rounds from all three judges.

Edwards (15-1) knocked down Moreno (19-3-2) in the eighth round and kept up his work rate but couldn’t get the knockout he wanted.
