In preparation for the highly anticipated world-title triple header, Sunny Edwards, Ellie Scotney, Nina Hughes, and Katie Healy successfully made weight for their upcoming bouts. The event is set to take place at the OVO Arena in Wembley on Saturday, June 10, with coverage available through various media platforms.

Sunny Edwards, the defending IBF flyweight champion, exuded a relaxed demeanor as he engaged in light-hearted banter with Andres Campos, his opponent. Both fighters easily met the weight requirements, setting the stage for an exciting clash.

Prior to the main event, a tense staredown unfolded between Ellie Scotney and Cherneka Johnson, the reigning IBF super-bantamweight champion. The intensity between the two fighters was palpable, fueling anticipation for their upcoming showdown.

Champion Nina Hughes and Katie Healy also successfully completed their weigh-ins for the all-British WBA bantamweight contest. The proceedings were relatively calm at Boxpark in Wembley, highlighting the lesser-known status of these fighters outside the boxing community.

“These fighters have strong reputations within the boxing world, but they have yet to achieve superstar status. They are hungry to make their mark,” commented promoter Eddie Hearn on the fighters’ aspirations.

Both Sunny Edwards and Andres Campos weighed in at 7st 13lb and engaged in a prolonged face-off, refusing to back down. Edwards, now associated with Matchroom Boxing, previously signed with Probellum promotional company, and his last title defense against Felix Alvarado did not receive UK TV coverage. Hearn expressed his belief that Edwards deserved more recognition and described this event as his opportunity to showcase his immense talent to the British public.

Edwards, undefeated in his professional career with 19 wins, displayed confidence and flair as he made his entrance wearing a Chicago Bulls basketball jersey. Playfully interacting with Team Campos, Edwards playfully charged towards them, injecting a lighthearted atmosphere into the proceedings.

Meanwhile, the tension between Ellie Scotney and Cherneka Johnson continued to simmer throughout the fight week. Scotney had previously expressed her belief that she was the superior fighter, which Johnson took as a sign of disrespect. The final face-to-face encounter between the two fighters showcased Johnson’s smile and exchange of words, while Scotney maintained a stern and focused gaze, displaying her determination.

In contrast, the weigh-in between Nina Hughes and Katie Healy proceeded without any drama. Both fighters successfully weighed in under the 8st 6lb bantamweight limit, generating little fanfare.

Among the attendees, the popular Romford heavyweight Johnny Fisher received a thunderous cheer. Additionally, fans had the chance to meet YouTuber-turned-boxer KSI, who offered free food to the first 200 visitors at a burger stall within the venue. However, not all of them stayed for the weigh-in, creating a mixed atmosphere of excitement and anticipation for the upcoming world-title bouts.
