2017 has brought a mixed bag for Haitian boxers but veteran Edner Cherry valiantly presses on to make sure there is a strong Haitian presence in the elite groups of the various boxing divisions. Edner Cherry is less known in the Haitian media than former and current champions like Joachim Alcine, Andre Berto, Jean PAscal, and Adonis Stevenson mostly due to the American media constantly referring to him as Bahamian despite that the boxer is never shy to display his Haitian pride.
Edner Cherry was born in the Bahamas of Haitian parents and has won various continental and Caribbean titles in the featherweight division. Some of his most memorable fights includes a victory by knockout over Escobedo Vicente and his most recent unanimous decision victory over Omar Douglas. Edner Cherry also fought boxing superstars like Timothy Bradley and Paul Malignaggi.
The 'Cherry Bomb' is now 34 with a record of 36 wins, 7 defeats, and 2 draws. Like his alias suggests, Edner is primarily a power puncher with an aggressive style. In the ring, Edner leaves no doubt on his intention to cause mayhem, which has earned him respect and admirations among boxing fans too tired of watching checkers game by fighters like Maywearther.
Edner's last fight versus Omar Douglas in April this years was a classic slugfest! The two fighters traded bombs from the opening round to the end. This fight is a likely candidate for fight of the year'.
