Septiembre 10, 2016 John Riel Casimero vs. Charlie Edwards en O2 Arena (Millenium Dome), Greenwich, Londres, España por el título de peso mosca FIB mundo
Casimero termina Edwards’ sueño de un título mundial de peso mosca
Ayer noche parece perder noche para los británicos Charlie Edwards cayó primero a John Riel Casimero y más tarde en el arroyo de Kell sanked a GGG. Edwards’ sueño de un título del mundo peso mosca vino machaca como él fue superado por Casimero en la 10 º Ronda de la pelea de semifondo de arroyo vs Golovkin.
Aunque él había entrado en el juego de seguro de una victoria, Edwards habían sido vistos como un favorito por muchos expertos del boxeo y seguidores antes de la pelea. Muchos habían pensado que el mosca nació en Surrey fue metiendo él mismo más de lo que él podría manejar cuando llegaron noticias de que él estaría luchando al peso mosca campeón del mundo.
Edwards was only going to his ninth pro-fight while the Filipino already had a wealth of experience in the flyweight category and numerous wins to his name.
The Filipino dominated the opening rounds but the 23 year old Englishman regained confidence midway to even nail Casimero a fourth round blow that left him with a cut above the eye.
La 26 year old Casimero however showed more accuracy than his opponent throughout the London 02 partido. He hit with more power and dominated the Golovkin vs Brook prematch.
The 10th round is what the Filipino needed to prove that his flyweight game was way above that of his counterparts. He sent Edwards reeling on the floor with a cracking left hook a minute into the game. Edwards managed to beat the count but referee Steve Gray jumped in to stop it soon after one minute and 57 seconds of the 10th round as Casimero carried on the onslaught.
Casimero’s delight and Edwards’ disappointment
Filipinas’ Casimero jumped up in delight have clinched the night’s title but the scenario was completely different for the Epsom fighter. The young Brit looked distraught as he tried to swallow the bitter pill of his loss to Casimero. His dream of a flyweight world title had just been swept away right under his watch by the shuddering left hook in the 10th round. This loss had been his first in a pro match. The Surrey youth knelt on the floor in dejection for a moment before regaining his cool.
The start of a journey
Even though Edwards might have been disappointed with yesternight’s loss, all is not lost for him. Last night’s contest serves as a stepping stone to greater career experience rather than a mark of defeat and humiliation. Edwards’ placement in the eyes of boxing counterparts and fans will certainly go up because he dared to challenge a giant. Además, the flyweight is still young. En 23, he still has many years of a boxing career ahead of him and he can manage to carve a name for himself as a flyweight icon too with time.
Edwards broke into the professional boxing world last year. Prior to that, he had been travelling around Europe facing other young boxers as an amateur boxer. He has risen fast in the field of boxing in comparison to most boxers. Most boxers usually have to endure many years of fighting on the undercards of big events with minimal audience before they can make themselves known. The Brit has however risen fast through the ranks and even participated in the semi-pro World Series of Boxing.
