The boxing world mourns another sad loss this morning as former British and Commonwealth Flyweight champion – Chris Edwards – has died suddenly at the age of 41.
Spanning a professional career over 14 years, the Stoke-on-Trent ‘banger’ fought his last contest in 2012 when he lost the British Flyweight title to Kevin Satchell.
Edwards, 17-15-4 (4), shared the ring with future world champions Jamie McDonnell and Lee Haskins as well as future European champion Andrea Sarritzu.
The pinnacle of Edwards’ career came on December 8, 2007 when he went up a weight class and captured the vacant British super flyweight title in an epic battle against McDonnell at Robin Park Centre in Wigan, England.
Chris was a much loved and respected man who continued to support the boxing scene around Stoke.
Saddoboxing.com would like to pass on their condolences to family and friends.
