Sad to get the news today retired referee Eddie Cotton has died from coronavirus at 72. A good, friendly man and quality ref. Biggest fight was Lewis-Tyson but also worked world title bouts involving Wladimir Klitschko, GGG, Huck, Adamek, BHop, Sergio Martinez & others. #RIP
Eddie Cotton was a great referee! Always in command and control. I used to always introduce him as “BIG” EDDIE COTTON! This COVID-19 has taken another one from our boxing community-I’m heartbroken!
R.I.P. Big Eddie-Much Love💔🕊 https://t.co/HsRN6LTv4t
