Former WBC world flyweight champion, Charlie Edwards, has said he doesn’t have ‘any time at all’ for his former trainer when asked why the pair split.
The Brit joined up with decorated trainer Joe Gallagher in a bid to add more world titles to his collection. Gallagher has trained the likes of Liam and Callum Smith, Scott Quigg, Anthony Crolla and Natasha Jonas before now.
When Edwards joined his stable he said he believed he was ‘the man to guide me to become a multi-weight world champion in the next few years of my career,’ but news emerged over the weekend that the pair have split, seemingly acrimoniously.
Speaking to Boxing Social, Edwards was asked why he has parted ways with Gallagher after securing his first win after a lengthy lay off – a six round points victory over Darwing Martinez back in June, which was his first fight since a knockout of Jacob Barreto in December of 2021.
“All I can say on that note, is I’ve got to be careful what I say but, you know what, I’m not going to say nothing, I’m not gonna leave myself in a predicament but I don’t have any time or energy for that man at all, ever.”
Edwards will now be focused on re-establishing himself in the bantamweight division he moved up to after his last fight at flyweight ended as a no-contest when Julio Cesar Martinez was judged to have illegally knocked him out with a body shot while he was down on one knee.
