12 X 3 Minute Rounds
SUNNY EDWARDS (8st 2lb 9oz) v MARCEL BRAITHWAITE (8st 2lb 8oz)
In what Edwards thought would be another straight-forward victory, He was instead troubled immensely by the man that almost retired from boxing completely just six months prior.
Sunny was dropped heavily by a right hand, left hook combo from underdog Braithwaite in the seventh round. However, the Croydon man came back stronger in the following eighth round, which was a disappointing three minutes from Braithwaite, who looked like he'd missed his chance at causing an upset.
More drama in the 10th round as Edwards is cut badly by a clash of heads. He hurts Braithwaite to the body before the away fighter is warned by the referee for the use of his head.
The fight manages to reach the end, with Edwards well ahead on the scorecards, but the decision goes to the three ringside judges.

A huge shot from Daniel Dubois crumples his Japanese opponent in the second round to end the fight.
It was a patient start from Dubois, uncharacteristic from the man with 12 KOs from 13 fights on his record. Fujimoto was a good mover and evaded a lot of Dubois' attacks but he caught a heavy right hand flush in the face with a minute to go which received roars from the crowd.
In the second stanza, the Asian opponent was offering the same as before, which was plenty of movement and zero offense. As he bob and weaved in front of the Greenwich powerhouse, Dubois flashed out a fats and furious jab which abruptly took the visitor off his feet.
'Dynamite' remained patient, trying to find a decisive fight-ending blow rather than rushing his work. The 33-year-ld from Tokyo backed up and held on for dear life. 'DDD' tried to pummel his man into submission but he bravely stood firm, so the 22-year-old from the Peacock Gym kept his ditanceand range and then unleashed a right hand from hell to end matters with immediate effect.
It was a sensible, controlled, but decisively destructive performance from the young Daniel Dubois and you can't help but feel very excited to see what could happen with him in 2020. Although his opponent was not a worthy one, he's definitely ready for a big step up in class.
