🇬🇧Charlie Edward’s (15-1-0, 6KO) retains his WBC World Flyweight Title after his bout against 🇲🇽Julio Cesar Martinez (14-1-0, 11KO) is officially ruled a no contest.
Martinez was bringing the heat to Edwards, sending explosive left hands that had the champion on his heels. Initially Martinez was ruled the victor after sending Edwards to his knees on the canvas in the third round. However, while Edwards was already on the canvas another body shot was landed by Martinez before Edwards was counted out. After review the shot was ruled illegal and brought the WBC decision of a no contest.
WBC President has stated the foul was accidental and not intentional, so there will be an immediate rematch
