Edouard recently won the WBA Fedelatin title in Panama and is excited about returning to the country he speaks of affectionately. “I received a passionate reception in Panama and really couldn’t wait to return. The fans are knowledgeable and appreciative of the sport. It made for an electric atmosphere and an amazing night of fights!”
Always thinking charitably Edouard continues, “I was really busy during my last visit to Panama. I hope that I am able to visit a few children’s organizations while there. I am taking a few surprises with me that I think they will really enjoy.” Though not fully determined, several credible opponents are being.
“The same blood that fueled Mr. Roberto Duran flows through Panama so it is vital that I present myself well. I will be exceptional come fight night!” Edouard also expresses enthusiasm about future performances on the world stage. “Several opportunities have come my way lately but there is one fight that looks particularly appetizing to me, a possible matchup with WBA Champ Felix Sturm (31-2-1 with 13 KOs) by the end of 2009 would be amazing.” Edouard is promoted by Square Ring, Inc. and recently struck a non-boxing promotional agreement with VMG Worldwide, Inc
