Former Team GB Flyweight Harvey Horn has his sights set on a showdown with WBO Super-Flyweight Champion and Frank Warren stablemate Sunny ‘Showtime’ Edwards.
Horn, 22, got his professional career off to a winning start with an impressive third round stoppage of Denis Bartos at the Copper Box Arena on the DeGale vs. Truax World title show last month and returns to action at the same venue on February 10th.
Unbeaten Edwards is looking forward to a massive 2018 after claiming his first professional title in only his sixth fight with a stoppage victory over Ross Murray in November.
Even though Horn accepts he he is a long way from the position of calling out future opponents, he believes a future fight with Croydon native Edwards would capture the imagination of UK fight fans.
Speaking exclusively to Richard Hubbard in the latest ‘Hooks and Jabs’ column, the Peacock Gym fighter said:
“Sunny Edwards is a fight I would like, because he’s got a bit more of an outgoing personality, the build up would be good and it would sell a lot better. I know for our weight that is saying a lot, but it would be a good fight that wouldn’t be lacking in build up.
“I have a good following behind me and they know about Sunny already because there have been things on social media. It would come together well and even the press conference would be very, very good.
“I would watch it!
“I have never been one to call people out though, I would rather get called out, so Sunny won’t hold back.
“Once I get this year done with five or six fights, then I will start targeting people and start looking at the likes of Jay Harris, Joe Maphosa and Sunny.
“I will be looking to go through the domestic division and prove I am a level above, like I have done over the last few years.”
