Edner Cherry, Omar Douglas Confident of Victory Ahead of April 4 PBC on FS1 Fight

By Mike Sloan Mar 31, 2017
Former world title challenger Edner Cherry has been given another crack at viability as he’ll be headlining the PBC on FS1 “Toe-To-Toe Tuesdays” card April 4. Cherry will take on rising contender Omar Douglas in a 10-round lightweight bout that will take place inside Sands Bethlehem Events Center in Bethlehem, Pa.

The two fighters were full of excitement and confidence in the final preparations for their showdown. The two spoke to the media from their camps and as expected, victory was the key word that oozed from both combatants’ mouths.

“Everything is good, and we will be prepared for everything on April 4,” said Cherry (35-7-2, 19 KOs). “This is not the first time that I've been in this position. He is the guy who has to prove he can perform. I have been there before, so the pressure is on him. I am motivated and I believe in myself. Those are the reasons that I am still here at the top of the 130 and 135 divisions.”

“Everything is great,” added Douglas (17-1, 12 KOs). “I am the better fighter. I have known about him for a long time. I watched him a lot when he fought on Friday Night Fights. I will let people know that I am player at 130 pounds, and a win will earn me a title shot. I have shown that I will fight anyone. He is a great veteran, but on Tuesday night I will be victorious.”

Televised coverage begins at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT and features an eight-round battle between unbeaten featherweight prospects Stephen Fulton (10-0, 5 KOs) and Luis Rosario (8-0-1, 7 KOs). Rounding out the broadcast will be local super featherweight Frank DeAlba (21-2-2-, 9 KOs) against Ryan Kielczweski (26-2, 8 KOs) in an eight-rounder.
