Showtime Extreme Results: Chad Dawson, Dominic Breazeale Win Early

Chad Dawson got back to his winning ways quickly on Sho Extreme Saturday, stopping a reluctant George Blades in one round. You wouldn’t say Dawson was “back” in any other way, though, as his back fat was winning more attention. I kid — Dawson wasn’t fat by normal human standards but he was 182 pounds on Friday and hit the ring at 202 pounds, visibly chunkier than he has...

Can Chad Dawson be "Bad" again? Can the former two-time light heavyweight world champion bounce back from two consecutive knockout losses and look sharp after a one-year hiatus?

Chad Dawson Signs With Al Haymon

Al Haymon is racking up the signings. I’m not sure how much he has left, but if Haymon can get something out of Chad Dawson, he will become the Zen Master. Boxing Scene is reporting that Dawson has inked a deal with the powerful Haymon. “We’ll have him fighting at 175 pretty soon,” said Watson, “probably in May.” Sam Watson, who works closely with Haymon, confirmed...

2013 Boxing Knockout Of The Year: Adonis Stevenson - Chad Dawson

(Chad Dawson attempts to rise from being flattened by Adonis Stevenson; photo credit: Graham Hughes/AP) Chad Dawson's technical decision loss to Jean Pascal in 2010 signaled the end of his tenure as an undefeated fighter. It wasn't a big deal, though; losses do and should happen in boxing, even if the sport has evolved to a point where they mean more than they should...

Top 5 opponents for Chad Dawson

After his back-to-back knockout losses to Andre Ward and Adonis Stevenson, "Bad" Chad Dawson has gone from sitting at the top of the light heavyweight heap to entering a career crossroads. At 31 years old, Dawson isn't used up and he isn't getting old early, although perhaps he was over-hyped earlier in his career, and perhaps he grew complacent after spending much...

Was Chad Dawson ever really “Bad Chad”? Or was he always overrated?

Inevitably, whenever a boxer suffers a surprising and decisive defeat, questions are raised about his ability, past and present. When the loss is a knockout defeat, those questions are doubled.

Boxer suffers gruesome eye injury during fight

I love boxing, but there isn’t any amount of money in the world you could pay me to be a fighter. You are always one punch away from being put to sleep like Chad Dawson or you take enough punishment that your eye looks like Alfredo Angulo. The crazy thing is Angulo had knocked down Erislandy Lara twice and had a legitimate chance to win the fight, until this punch impregnated his...

Mystify Me: Chad Dawson Vs. Adonis Stevenson Preview And Prediction

What to do with Chad Dawson? The light heavyweight champion is among the most athletic boxers in the world,  a troublesome southpaw who isn't afraid to fight anyone and also happens to be adroit when it comes to the finer technical points of the sport. He also is a flake who sheds trainers like a chicken molting twice a year, can't make up his mind whether HBO screwed...
