Former Viking-Turned-Boxer Inspires Opponent to Duck Out of (Mis)Match?

Former Vikings linebacker Ray Edwards continues to strike fear into the hearts of his opponents after leaving the football world to join the boxing ring. Nicholas Capes, an Iowa boxer, has been suspended after a video of his fight with Edwards in North Dakota that the combative sports commissioner says clearly reveals him taking a dive.

Only a few seconds into the fight, Edwards goes for an uppercut and though he hits nothing but air, Capes falls like a sack of flour. The event promoter said Capes was a last minute replacement and didn’t realize what he was getting himself into by hopping in the ring with the heavily over-matched Edwards.
