Chris Edwards News


Chris Edwards is an English professional boxer who competes in the flyweight and Super flyweight divisions. He comes from Stoke-on-Trent and is the current Commonwealth and former British flyweight champion.

Edward's made his professional debut in the Welsh town of Ebbw Vale in April 1998, beating Chris Thomas via TKO in the 2nd round. The victory was to be his last for the next two years. Fighting a further six times between September 1998 and September 2000 Edward's went on to lose on all six occasions. Despite his long run of defeats Edwards managed to stem the tide of defeat with two victories coming in October and November 2000 allowing him to end the year with a pro record of won 3, lost 6. The next year (2001) saw Edward's revert to the journeyman type with four fights resulting in a further two defeats against one draw and one win against Neil Read.

Read was also to prove Edwards solitary opponent throughout the whole of 2002 when in October of that year the two men met one more. Edward's picked up his fifth pro win (2nd against Read) with a points victory over six rounds at the Kings Hall in Stoke. Only one fight followed in 2003 with Edwards this time losing to future British and Commonwealth champion Lee Haskins in June again over six rounds.
