Lewie ‘The Saint’ Edmondson Targets Victorious Performance Against Joel McIntyre

Lewie 'The Saint' Edmondson Joel McIntyre

Lewie ‘The Saint’ Edmondson is gearing up for an electrifying encounter as he prepares to face off against Joel McIntyre in Cardiff on May 11. Set to share the spotlight on the undercard of Lauren Price’s world title shot against Jessica McCaskill at Cardiff Arena, Edmondson is eyeing a dominant performance and has his sights set on future title opportunities.

While he may not be fighting for world titles just yet, the undefeated 28-year-old from Southampton is determined to make a statement in the ring. “I never want to lose in the ring, let alone to a Pompey man,” Edmondson affirmed in an interview with BBC Sport.

As a devoted supporter of Southampton FC, Edmondson draws inspiration from his passion for the club as he prepares for his ninth career bout. “I believe I should be coming through these fights in good style,” he emphasized. “I’m ready to put on a career-best performance, trust me it’s incoming.”

Edmondson’s last outing in December saw him secure a unanimous points decision over Dmytro Fedas on the undercard of Chris Billam-Smith v Mateusz Masternak. Now, facing off against Joel McIntyre, a former English light-heavyweight champion, Edmondson is prepared for a tough challenge.

Despite McIntyre’s recent string of losses, including bouts against experienced opponents like Lyndon Arthur, Ricky Summers, and Shakan Pitters, Edmondson anticipates a competitive showdown. “It will definitely have that added edge with where we’re both from,” Edmondson remarked.

Reflecting on the heated rivalry between Southampton and Portsmouth, Edmondson is keenly aware of the significance of their upcoming clash. “We’ll put on a good performance, and there will be a win by stoppage; it will be violent,” he declared.

With aspirations for future title fights, Edmondson is eager to make a statement in Cardiff and hopes to continue his momentum with three fights lined up for the year. “I’m ready for some big nights, and after this, I’d like to be in some form of a title fight,” he stated confidently. “I’m ready to push on.”
