The Heavyweight Champion Who Died After A Fight – Edward “Big Ed” Sanders

Edward “Big Ed” Sanders might not be a name you often hear in discussions about the greatest boxers in history but it should be.

But after a blow to the head during one of his fights cut his life short, his name quietly faded into the past and everything he’d accomplished in his career faded with it.
