Titles: WBC jr. featherweight champion in 1981 Record: 44-6-1 Years active: 1976-1987 Born: May 27, 1956 in Kampala, Uganda Nickname: None This Ugandan southpaw took on the best of his generation and beat or held his own against them all. He was adopted as a boy from Uganda and taken to London where he became a outstanding amateur. During the early period of his career he traveled the world fighting most anywhere for a paycheck. Edwards came to the attention of most fans when he fought Alexis Arguello in a non-title bout and did well enough in that fight to earn a title shot at Bazooka Limon. Limon took the jr. featherweight crown after Arguello moved up in weight. The fight with Limon and the next fight with Bobby Chacon for Edwards newly won crown were classics. These two wars took a lot out of Edwards however and he suffered a upset loss to Rolando Navarett in his very next defense. A successful win of the European championship got Edwards another fight with now champion Bobby Chacon. He would loose this fight along with 2 more title shots at lightweight before retiring in 1987. His all action style and tremendous stamina made him a favorite on both sides of the Atlantic, which is something few fighters enjoyed.
