In his bid to return to winning ways, Edwards took on Mexican Curiel in Phoenix, Arizona.

The former flyweight champion outclassed his opponent over eight rounds before the bout was stopped on the doctor’s recommendation.

Despite his dominance, he did not come out of the contest unscathed.

Edwards was severely bloodied after an inadvertent clash of heads with Curiel.

The incident left him with a nasty cut above his eye.

Following his technical decision win, Edwards was booed by the crowd.

Responding after taking the mic, he said: “I don’t know if the crowd realise what happened there.

“The doctor stopped the cut no decision of mine, I’m more upset than any of the 10,000 fans in here.

“I thought I was clear ahead and I thought my opponent was slowing down.

“I thought I was going to get him out of there or win absolutely conclusively.

“I managed to leave Arizona uglier than I came twice in a row, so I want to apologise to the fans who have taken this personally but I had nothing to do with the ref stopping this.

“Maybe I’ll come back and fight Curiel again, I don’t know what the fans want.”
