Andreas Campos: "I Will Send Him
To Sleep Before The Twelfth Round"
Undefeated Chilean Flyweight Andres Campos wants to create
history by becoming his country’s first World Champion when
he locks horns with reigning IBF ruler Sunny Edwards at the
OVO Arena Wembley this Saturday June 10, live worldwide on
Campos’ clash with Edwards tops a blockbuster triple-header
of World Title action in the capital, with Nina Hughes (5-0,
2 KOs) defending her WBA Bantamweight crown against Katie
Healy (6-0) and Cherneka Johnson (15-1, 6 KOs) defending her
IBF Super-Bantamweight strap against Ellie Scotney (6-0).
Edwards (19-0, 4 KOs) is set to make his eagerly anticipated
Matchroom debut this weekend having penned a promotional
deal with Eddie Hearn in March, but Campos (15-0, 4 KOs) –

spoiling the party after finally landing his dream World

“Sunny Edwards has never fought against anyone like me,”
said Campos. “I am by far the best opponent that he will
have faced. I have lots of experience fighting against and
defeating undefeated guys from both the amateurs and pros. I
am starving for success. I am so hungry to win this World
Title and make history for Chile. If you want to win
real cash, then this is a great place.
“Sunny Edwards is good, but he is not good enough to beat
me. I know that I am better than him and I will show you all
on Saturday night. I have three scenarios: scenario A, B and
C. We have trained so hard for each one. Sunny won’t be able
to run away from me like a dancer. He is just dancing and
running all the time. I will send him to sleep before the
Unbeaten Sheffield-based slickster Edwards makes his fourth
defence of the IBF strap he landed in April 2021 against
Moruti Mthalane in London, and ‘Showtime’ is gunning for
unification clashes in the second half of the year and
having seen off challenges from Felix Alvarado, Muhammad
Waseem and Jayson Mama.
26-year-old Campos is hungry to create his own legacy,
fuelled by the burning to desire to become his country’s
first ever World Champion. Edwards is renowned for having
one of the sharpest tongues in boxing, but Campos says he
won’t be engaging in any back and forth with his opponent
during a busy fight week.
“I never trash talk,“ said Campos. “I always do my talking
in the ring and let my fists take care of business. Sunny is
famous for his trash talking, not for his boxing. Chile
doesn’t have any World Champions and I will make history for
my country and my continent of South America. I will be the
first one. The IBF World Title is very special to me.
“Fighting in the UK for the first time as a professional
doesn’t faze me at all. As a pro I have fought in Australia
and in Argentina. It is not such a big change for me.
Remember, I have done almost all of my 95 fights outside of
my country. I have represented Chile all over the world. I
don’t feel the pressure. To fight here in the UK is nothing
big for me.”
Campos, who is managed by Australian Tony Tolj and trained
by Hernan Gauto from Argentina and Nicolas Orellana from
Chile, is ranked at seven in the IBF rankings and has held
the WBO Latino Flyweight strap since March 2020. ‘The Pride
of Barnechea’ says he also has the backing of UK fans who
want to see Edwards defeated for the first time.
“Since I arrived in the UK last week, everyone that I have
met in the gyms, malls and streets – everyone has told me
that I have to beat that trash talker Sunny Edwards.
Everyone that talks to me about Sunny Edwards wants me to
beat him. They all want me to become the first man to beat
“It’s crazy – nobody cares about Sunny Edwards here in
England. I have the support of Chilean fans and all of the
English fans who I have met. Everyone on my social media is
telling me that I have to beat this clown.”
