CWFC 48: Kris Edwards v Brian Hyslop

20/06/2012

KRIS EDWARDS will make his flyweight debut at Cage Warriors 48 in London next month.

Brian Hyslop (5-1-0) will provide the opposition for Edwards (7-3-0) in the Welshman’s first bout since dropping to 125lbs, which will take place at the HMV Forum in Kentish Town on Saturday, July 21.

22-year-old Edwards (pictured), ranked as one of Europe’s top ten bantamweights, signed an exclusive contract with Cage Warriors last year.

His stint with the organisation began in impressive fashion in April when he secured a unanimous decision victory over Janne Elonen-Kulmala at CWFC Fight Night 5 in Amman, Jordan.

However, Edwards will now drop down from bantamweight and his first challenge in the flyweight division will be a difficult one.

Hyslop, who’ll be fighting for Cage Warriors for the first time, is ranked as Europe’s number six flyweight and his only professional defeat to date came at the hands of Mark Platts earlier this year.
