After just nine fights as a professional boxer, Charlie Edwards was given a shot at the super flyweight world title held by John Riel Casimero.

Unfortunately for Edwards, his tenth fight saw his first loss when the experienced champion won by TKO.

Since that night Edwards has gotten back to winning ways beating Georgi Georgiev via a TKO at the Wembley Arena.

Last night, on the under-card of the Burns v Indongo unification fight, at the Hydro Arena in Glasgow, Edwards was taking on Iain Butcher for the British super-flyweight title.

In a thrilling encounter it was Charlie Edwards that emerged victorious taking the title by a unanimous points decision.

After that loss to Casimero, in what was probably too early for a world-title fight for the twenty-four year-old, Edwards is once again starting to move in the right direction.

Hopefully a European title shot will be forthcoming as he continues on an upward journey.
