LONDON, September 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Second major partnership deal for expanding online bookmaker 

Expanding online bookmaker 21Bet has confirmed its second major partnership deal in a month by announcing its official sponsorship of IBF flyweight world title contender Charlie Edwards.

Edwards, 23, who only turned professional just 18 months ago, won the English title in his fifth outing, and will challenge John Riel Casimero for the IBF flyweight title in his ninth professional fight on Saturday.

Richard Hogg, 21Bet CEO, commented: "We're very excited about our new sponsorship deal with Charlie Edwards, which will see 21Bet branding featured on his shorts for the next five bouts. It's great to be supporting British talent and it will be great to support his continued success as the business grows.

"Charlie is such a prodigious talent who mirrors much of what we're about, UK focused, emerging and in the process of realising the huge amount of potential he has. We're fully expecting Charlie to be the UK's next World Champion and we want our punters to champion Charlie much like we are, which is why we are guaranteeing the best price in the industry for him on Saturday"

To celebrate the sponsorship deal, which comes less than a month after 21Bet became the official betting partner of Wolverhampton Wanderers, numerous price enhancements for the fight are available on the 21Bet site.

Charlie Edwards commented: "The IBF Flyweight World title fight is the first of my career and the sponsorship from 21Bet is a real boost. I think they've recognised the drive and ambition I take into the ring with me every time I fight."

21Bet offers extensive markets on all boxing matches and will offer various price boosts and best price guarantees on the fight between Edwards and Casimero.
