Sunny ‘Showtime’ Edwards, a Suzi Wong customer
Sunny ‘Showtime’ Edwards certainly lives by the nickname ‘Showtime’ in the ring. A master of ring craft, movement, speed and slickness, Sunny is one of the most exciting British fighters right now.
Part of a fighting family, him and brother Charlie Edwards former WBC World Champion train together under the guidance of Grant Smith in Sheffield. It’s quite a pro stable Grant has got in his Steel City Boxing Club, with training partners including Dalton Smith (Grant son) former elite squad GB Athlete and signed with Matchroom Boxing and the Kinsiona Brothers. It’s a fantastic family atmosphere in the gym and Grant really does know how to get the best out of his fighters. Sunny has flourished under his wing, and the boxing world his oyster with a bright future ahead.
Working on Custom Boxing Shorts for Sunny
Currently 14 wins on his record and holding the illustrious British Title Sunny is looking to add more titles to his card.
Working with Sunny on his fight kits is always a highlight for us. He is a super intelligent fighter, and understands the concept of a show, meaning his kit is part of this as well. Just like a theatre goer, wanting to see and enjoy the costumes of the stage, the ring is his stage and he wants to represent himself through not only his skills but his boxing kits also.
We have been fortunate enough to create some of our best work with Sunny, including the much loved Frank Lucas inspired kit. We managed to source some faux Chinchilla fabric to make a robe and boxing shorts that were out of this world, the ultimate in luxury.
We have also made boxing shorts inspired by Venom, Japanese cartoon characters from Manga, Thanos and The Matrix.
We always make Sunny’s little boy a replica boxing short when Sunny fights and one day you never know Chance himself could be coming into the Suzi Wong studio for his own shorts, either way he has some great pieces of history and they look great for mini photoshoots with his Dad.
The future is bright for Sunny and we have some amazing ideas we are already in discussions about. What this space for some crazy, unique boxing shorts and jackets.

Favourite Suzi Wong kit?
I literally love all my Suzi Wong kits, but in particular the Frank Lucas fur kit was insane, no one ever saw anything like that before. Followed by my Venom inspired kit.
