Rodriguez vs Edwards Complete Undercard

Rodriguez vs Edwards headlines a night of boxing from Matchroom being held in Glendale, Arizona. The event will be broadcast live on DAZN on Saturday 16 December 2023.

The main event between Bam and Sunny will see a unification in the Flyweight division. Bam Rodriguez stakes his WBO world title against Sunny Edwards IBF world title.

Sunny Edwards is coming off of a successful defence back in June where he easily outpointed underwhelming opponent Andres Campos.

Bam Rodriguez became a two weight world champion when he stepped down from Super Flyweight to capture the vacant WBO Flyweight title. Rodriguez easily outpointed Cristian Hernandez back in April, but suffered a broken jaw in the process, delaying his bout against Sunny Edwards.

The undercard for Rodriguez vs Edwards features 7 different matches, including one for a minor WBC title. A number of British fighters have also travelled out to the States as part of the card.
