Ray Edwards has had quite the downward spiral lately when it comes to his NFL career. Still, Edwards has once again fallen back on his true love for boxing.
Normally I wouldn’t give a former Viking’s extracurricular activities much thought on these pages, but the video evidence of Edwards’ most recent fight is just far too great to pass up.
In the video you will see Edwards squaring off against what appears to be one of Willy Wonka’s slave laborers with self-esteem issues. I don’t know why anyone would have bet against Edwards, or why anyone would have bet against anything other than a first round TKO, but something tells me there was some gambling involved in this little stunt.
Jeff Warner is Edwards’ boxing manager and he has quite the history on him. Various stories have been reported over the years of Warner fixing matches. Also, the State’s of Minnesota and Iowa have banned him from producing a fighter unless they get to pick the opponent, according to one of those stories. He has also received plenty of flak over the years for pulling men out of homeless shelters to fight against his boxers.
This latest fight Edwards took part in took place in North Dakota.
