Ray Edwards next boxing match is off

After earning a hard-fought unanimous decision in his pro boxing debut last month, Vikings DE Ray Edwards was scheduled to return to the ring June 24 against Larry Butler.

The fight, however, has been canceled.

That’s because, according to scout.com, Butler backed out of the fight. Perhaps Butler – who scored a TKO in his pro debut on the same card as Edwards’ first fight – got nervous while watching the highlights of Edwards’ win against T.J. Gibson (as seen in the video embedded below) and decided he wanted no part of him.

The Midwest Sports Council said in a statement that Edwards would return on a date TBA – it might be pushed back until July or August – and now, there’s a very real chance that the lockout could be over by then and Edwards could be back in somebody’s training camp (probably not the Vikings) sooner rather than later.

Like Ravens S Tom Zbikowski, Edwards might have fought in his last bout for quite a while.

Was that boxing?

Are you kidding me?  Someone is honestly trying to insinuate that Edwards is a "scary" boxer?!?  He was matched with a guy who was  a good 20+ pounds lighter than him and, while Edwards' "skills" are pathetic, that clown looked like he just finished a case of beer and jumped into a "last man standing" competition down at Slammin Joe's Bar-n-Grill...
He's crap as a football player and I GUARANTEE if you put him in the ring with a quality boxer he'll be drinking his meals thru a straw the rest of the way thru the lockout.  At which point Al Davis or Dan Schneider will pay him $100M for 4 years with a $60M signing bonus.

Someone is going to really over-pay for Edwards.  And when he cashes in I will read/hear 100 different stories about how syupid the Vikings are for not resigning him (to a bloated contract)  then when he fails to reach 10 sacks for 2-3 years in a row... people will question the signing and the amount paid.  However, no apologies will be given to the Vikings.  No props will be given for a smart move.  Just watch.
