Eddie Davis (born in Dillon, South Carolina, USA on 4 October 1951) was a professional light heavyweight boxer. Overall, he compiled a record of 34 wins (20 by knockout), 6 losses, and 1 draw.[1]

Davis started his career by knocking out fellow boxer Otis Gordon in two rounds. His star rose with five more wins, but this streak ended with a draw with Mario Rosa. He won four more fights, but then lost to Marvin Johnson and was knocked out by Pete McIntyre.

He lost in his first title fight to Dwight Qawi. Subsequently, he fought twice more for the world title, but lost to the undefeated Michael Spinks in 1984, on points, and later to Don Lalonde, by knockout.[1]
