Charlie Magri has tipped Charlie Edwards to go all the way in the professional game as he makes his debut in the paid ranks at The O2 on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports.

Magri famously won the British Flyweight title in just his third fight when he was 21, the age that Edwards is as he enters the ring in Greenwich this weekend. ‘Champagne Charlie’ went on to win World and European titles after a fine amateur background himself, and with Edwards carrying an impressive CV from Team GB into the pros, Magri believes he can emulate his success.
