Charlie Edwards revealed he has taken barely a week off between winning the world flyweight title and his first defence next Saturday.

The 26-year-old returns to the ring against Angel Moreno for the first time since his hugely impressive performance in outpointing Cristofer Rosales for the WBC belt in December.

But as well as not buying himself a single material reward for winning the title, he said he has had almost no time out of the gym ahead of his clash with his former sparring partner.

He said: ‘I had some time off over Christmas to let my hair down and enjoyed my food, but my goal has been to chase big fights. Now I am No 1 I want to be active, I want a legacy, to become a British great and a multi-weight world champion.

‘My best life is when I am in the gym. I am obsessed with bettering myself day in and day out. When I am out of the gym I fall into a bit of a depressive state because I am not achieving what I know I am capable of achieving.

‘I haven’t done anything extravagant since getting the title, I haven’t bought myself anything as such. I leased a Range Rover if you can say that is a treat, but I am very simple.

‘I don’t need things to be happy. I am in the same house, the same watch, the same everything. It hasn’t changed for me – I am not materialistic. Flash holidays and having time out of the ring in nightclubs is not me.’

Moreno and Edwards sparred 28 rounds together in 2016 and Edwards said: ‘I have been in the ring with him so I have got his distance. That is the main thing about my style.

‘The distance is something people don’t really account for and it is the biggest key in boxing – you get a range of their distance, how he likes to fight, how he likes to come in, the reach.

‘Having that stored in your mind helps. I am confident that on the night you will see a spectacular and solid performance.’
