Tonight from Oracle Arena in Oakland, live on HBO and Sky Sports, Andre Ward will defend his super middleweight crown against current light heavyweight king Chad Dawson in the main event, with Antonio DeMarco facing John Molina in the lightweight co-feature.
Bad Left Hook will have live round-by-round coverage of both fights tonight.
Fight time: 9:45 p.m. EDT
Location: Oracle Arena - Oakland, California
TV channel: HBO (US) / Sky Sports (UK)
Ward (25-0, 13 KO) and Dawson (31-1, 17 KO) are both still in a fight for respect in some ways, despite being two of the most well-regarded talents in the sport. In a world looking for American boxing stars, neither has shown "star quality" in terms of attracting casual fans, but the hope is that a fight like this can push them over that edge.
In terms of talent, it's all there tonight.
