Shocking moment world champ Sunny Edwards beats up Twitter troll who travelled 200 miles for fight | The Sun
SUNNY EDWARDS taught a social media troll a lesson after he dared to enter the ring with the world champion.
The Brit, 26, invited Twitter user Fab Tanga to his gym in Sheffield to put his money where his mouth is.
Remarkably, Tanga agreed and spent £110 on a train to travel 200 miles from London to Sheffield to fight Edwards.
Unsurprisingly it was a very one-sided affair and Tanga lasted a little over six minutes before exhaustion led him to call it quits.
Edwards toyed with his opponent throughout, dancing around and jabbing whenever he felt like it.
At one point he even hid behind Tanga as his wild swings became more and more desperate.

The 18-0 boxer mostly went easy on Tanga but did land a big left hook that sent his opponent sprawling backwards onto the ropes.
One final big shot eventually settled the bout with Tanga falling to his knees before leaning onto the ropes to catch his breath.
Despite the animosity beforehand with Tanga labelling Edwards a "coward", both men were in good spirits after the fight.
Edwards clearly respected Tanga for staying true to his word and having the courage to enter the ring, so the pair posed for a post-fight photo together with Edwards calling his opponent a "champ".

Edwards was respectful throughout and could have cause serious damage had he chosen to, but he instead decided to throw light jabs and pulled out of his bigger punches.
Once he realised the fight was on with Tanga waiting outside his gym, Edwards said on Twitter: "Nah you’re cold for coming. I got my kids til 7 and I'm coming to get you and we going gym."
Tanga wasn't happy about the prospect of fighting children so Edwards put out a Twitter plea for someone to look after his kids so he could fight the Londoner.
Afteer the fight Edwards tweeted: "In all seriousness respect to Tanga
for travelling four hours on train from London to Sheffield, on his own back and dragging me off the sofa for a couple rounds sparring."
Tanga appreciated Edwards taking the time to spar, saying: "I want just say with all my heart, thank you Sunny Edwards you demonstrated to me that in the UK there is at least one SUPER CHAMPION.
"I will pray to God to protect you, your family and friends, he is fast, he is really fu**ing fast , 84 pound for back in London."
