IBF flyweight champion Sunny Edwards will take on Andres Campos on June 10th in his first fight since signing with Matchroom Boxing.

The card, which features two other world title fights, will take place at Wembley Arena live on DAZN.

Edwards, 19-0-0, penned a deal with Eddie Hearn‘s outfit at the beginning of the month as he looks to tie down the big names in and around 108lbs.

The Briton must first overcome Chile’s Campos however who is undefeated in 15 pro contests, four of which ended inside the distance.

The chief support sees New Zealand’s IBF super-bantamweight champion Cherneka Johnson defend against Britain’s Ellie Scotney.

Initially set to take place on the Katie TaylorChantelle Cameron card on May 20th, the latter requested the fight be removed from the show due to tensions with Scotney’s trainer Shane McGuigan.

Scotney expressed her disappointment at the decision via social media but nevertheless hopes to claim her first world title three years into her pro career.

The 25-year-old picked up the European crown with a ten-round unanimous decision victory over Mary Romero last time out.

Johnson meanwhile defeated Melissa Esquivel in April last year to become world champion before subsequently defending versus Susie Ramadan in Melbourne six months later.

Recently-crowned WBA bantamweight champion Nina Hughes also takes on former belt holder Shannon Courtenay.

Hughes bested Jamie Mitchell over ten rounds in November to claim the belt in just her fifth fight.

Courtenay previously held the WBA title before losing to the aforementioned Mitchell in 2021.

The 29-year-old marked her ring return with an eight-round points victory in December as she bids to become a two-time world champion.

Elsewhere on the card, Tokyo 2020 Olympian Cheavon Clarke clashes with David Jamieson in a final eliminator for the British cruiserweight title.

Youssef Khoumari also takes on Reece Belotti in a final eliminator for the British crown at super-featherweight.

New signing Shannon Ryan also features at flyweight, alongside popular heavyweight Johnny Fisher.
