Boxing great Andre Ward must fight more than once annually

Although sidelined due to a promotional dispute, The Ring and WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward is seeking more than “just a fight.” Ward (27-0, 14 KOs), who previously hadn’t scrapped since earning a 10th round TKO victory over “Bad” Chad Dawson in September 2012, last exited the squared circle on November 16 after outclassing Edwin Rodríguez to easily safeguard...

Chad Dawson Signs With Al Haymon

Al Haymon is racking up the signings.

2013 Knockout of the year award

Who had the best knockout in boxing in 2013? The annual Knockout of the Year is one of the most discussed of all of the big boxing honors for the year. A great knockout produces huge buzz and fan interest, and it usually offers a major result. As a minimum, the Knockout of the Year should come from a clear, telegenic blow; it should result in a knockout, not a TKO; and the results...

(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.

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...

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...
