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.

Ward places title on the line against Dawson

I cannot identify what Chad Dawson's greatest attribute as a fighter is yet because I have not fought him, so that remains to be seen. There is not one thing that's dangerous about him: He is a good, all-around fighter. His credentials speak for themselves, and when you go into a megafight or a championship fight, you prepare for the best and you prepare for everything. I'm not...
