Edgar "Mad Dog" Ross (July 29, 1949 – June 25, 2012) was an American boxer who fought professionally between 1972 and 1979. He was an amateur champion, winning the state's Golden Gloves championship as a light heavyweight. As a professional, he amassed a 58-2-2 record in the middleweight division, with 41 wins via KO.Ross grew up in Tuscaloosa; his brother Ronnie played football for Auburn, but he was too violent for football, according to a childhood friend, and picked fights on the Tuscaloosa streets before turning to amateur boxing on the advice of a Tuscaloosa County deputy sheriff who, himself an amateur boxer, had seen Ross beat up on people in bars and parking lots. After two fights he joined the Navy and served in Vietnam, and after his return returned to boxing, compiling a 24-4 record and winning the state's Golden Gloves competition.
