No purse bid needed.

Levi Luna reports and Jake Donovan confirms that IBF flyweight champion Sunny Edwards and mandatory challenger Felix Alvarado have come to terms within their 30-day time limit. The bout is targeted for November 11th in London.

As I said last time, this is a really, really good matchup between two of the best in the business below 115. Edwards (18-0, 4 KO) is a technical boxer nonpareil, Alvarado (38-2, 33 KO) a relentless hunter and former 108-pound titlist with genuinely monstrous pop in his hands. With Julio Cesar Martinez’s career stuck in quicksand, Junto Nakatani pondering a move to 115, and Artem Dalakian content to stay in cruise control, there’s a good argument to be made that whoever wins here should be the clear number one at 112.

Plus, they’re apparently fighting on a Friday, which is always welcome. Not that Saturday wouldn’t work; the only competition at the moment is Seniesa Estrada vs TBA and the momentous blockbuster that is Montana Love vs Stevie Spark.
