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.

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.
