“SHE could have given birth, and I would have been sparring Louis Norman.” It has been a tumultuous time in the life of Sunny Edwards. Only 23 years old, and he looks even younger, he has become a father, risen in his professional career to headline TV shows and he hopes to advance far enough up the world rankings to challenge for a major title sooner rather than later. Fatherhood has changed him too. “It’s zeroed me in a lot more, not to take everything for granted,” Sunny says. “That’s really what I’m doing it for.

“It definitely has changed me in a lot of ways,
my mentality and my approach.

“Competing in the ring is my everything but at
the end of the day it’s not everything. As long as I can give [his son] the
best life, no matter how I do it, that’s all that really is my priority.”
