Edner “Cherry Bomb” Cherry Promises to Shine in ‘09
By Bob Carroll, Doghouse Boxing (Jan 10, 2009) DoghouseBoxing.com  
WBC USNBC Lightweight champion Edner “Cherry Bomb” Cherry 24-6 (12) has stated that 2009 will be his year. In early 2009, Cherry will be stepping back into the ring for the first time since his loss to WBC light welterweight champion Timothy Bradley back in September. Since that fight, Cherry has been training hard with head trainer Pete Fernandez, and they have been making significant changes to his training procedures and will be returning to the lightweight division. Cherry says the training changes will help him get back on a winning streak, help return him to the top of the lightweight division.

Despite the loss to Bradley, 2008 was a good year for Cherry. On May 21st, Cherry knocked out former IBF lightweight champion Steve Johnston in round ten at Camp Lejuene, North Carolina. That fight was the headliner for a tribute to the troops. With victories like that and his previous two wins over Wes Ferguson, a Floyd Mayweather Jr. protégé, Cherry states it will be good to get back to what got him on to the top. Also in 2008, Cherry was the subject of a national rumor, stating he had a run in with Floyd Maywether Jr in a Las Vegas, Neveda nightclub and wound up knocking Floyd Jr. out cold. This rumor was proven false, but gave Cherry some press.
