Rising welterweight Ed Brown dies after shooting

PROFESSIONAL boxer Ed Brown has been shot and killed in Chicago, his home city. A rising prospect, only 25 years old, he died on Sunday.

“He was so excited about being 20-0 and so excited about being so close to breaking through. He was excited about what he was going to do. He believed and I believed he was going to be a world champion. It’s just such a shame, just such a waste of a life,” his manager Cameron Dunkin told ESPN.

He had a gleaming 20-0 record with 16 victories coming inside the distance. Most recently he outpointed Albert Mensah over eight rounds in November in Philadelphia.
