Edwards, 30, stopped the Nigerian Nightmare with a stunning Hail Mary head kick with two minutes left in the fifth round.

Rocky was brimming with confidence ahead of the fight, telling SunSport: “He’s good in what he does, he does basic things but he does it very well. And that’s why he gets victories.
