BW Pod #18! MTK Global mini-series: Calmness is key for prospect Rhys Edwards and coach Gary Lockett

Our daily podcast mini-series continues to countdown to MTK Global’s show at the Vale Sports Arena in Cardiff on Saturday 1 June.

Aside from a tripleheader of quality title fights, there’s also a promising supporting cast, featuring some of Welsh boxing’s next generation of prizefighters, including prospects like Lance Cooksey (9-0, 2KO), Jacob Robinson (5-0, 2KO) and Maredudd Thomas (7-0, 2KO).

One standout from the crop of prospects is Tonypandy’s Rhys Edwards (5-0, 2KO), who has hit the ground running since turning professional seven months ago and he’s looked like a million dollars in doing so.

In this episode, the 19-year-old featherweight and his coach Gary Lockett talk about keeping his feet on the ground amidst growing hype and they reveal the team spirit radiating from their gym in East Cardiff.
