Daniel "The Haitian Sensation" Edouard in Panama Friday
Daniel "The Haitian Sensation" Edouard returns to the ring on April 30

"My conditioning is great. I had an excellent camp and I'm ready to go." A buzz started when Edouard was slated to face Sergio Mora on the undercard of the Roy Jones Junior/Bernard Hopkins rematch, but ultimately, he was not able to commit to that fight due to family crisis. He continued, "The business of boxing sometimes causes you to wait. Then there are times life makes you wait. I'm just happy the wait is over."
Edouard, ranked #11 WBA, #20 WBC and #14 IBF/USBA, as his ring name implies, is of Haitian decent. Common to the entire Haitian community, of which Edouard is no exception, are the still lingering signs of a massive earthquake that hit the island country in early January.
"We have suffered great loss as a people and on individual levels as well, but we are not discouraged. We are working hard to rebuild that which was lost and improve those things we can. It isn't an easy task, but we are faithful that as we continue moving forward we will get it done."
Immediately following the earthquake, Edouard, who is actively involved in humanitarian work through Haitian Sensation Foundation, relocated his boxing camp to his native homeland. "Moving the camp to Haiti allowed me to keep assisting in relief efforts while staying focused on my next fight."
Edouard faces current Panamanian light middleweight champion, Jose Arosemena (12-5-2 KOs 10), who is described as a knock out artist. Arosemena hopes to advance his career at the expense of The Haitian Sensation.
"We both have the same goal, to win. Only one fighter can win though. I intend for that fighter to be me."
