6'5", 270 lb Edwards is scheduled to fight TJ Gibson at the Grand Casino in Minnesota ... and he isn't taking any chances -- telling TMZ, "I have not had sex in the past six weeks and will not until after the fight."

Edwards explains, "No real boxer should have sex before a fight ... it affects your legs."
