Edwards produced a masterful performance against Cristofer Rosales on an emotional night in December to win the WBC flyweight title in his 15th fight as a professional.
Joshua Buatsi also features on the card with Anthony Joshua’s protégé Lawrence Okolie also in action as he seeks to secure the 12th victory of his burgeoning career.
Edwards (14-1, 6 KO) upset Cristofer Rosales in December to win the belt, and will be making his first defense. This time, he’ll be the clear favorite, as the 35-year-old Moreno (19-2-2, 6 KO) has largely built his record against really lousy opposition.
The undercard will feature a pair of domestic title fights. Prospect Joshua Buatsi (9-0, 7 KO) will face Liam Conroy (16-3-1, 8 KO) for the vacant British light heavyweight title, and British cruiserweight champ Lawrence Okolie (11-0, 8 KO) will put his title up against the Commonwealth belt held by Wadi Camacho (21-7, 12 KO).
All of those fights are set for 12 rounds.
But first, a title defence against Moreno, who has just two defeats in his 23-fight career.
