Dawson vs Stevenson: Andre Ward previews HBO main event

HBO Sports analyst and reigning king of the super middleweights Andre Ward breaks down Saturday's HBO main event between Chad Dawson and Adonis Stevenson.

Andre Ward of HBO Sports previews the Saturday night main event between his former foe Chad Dawson and powerful Adonis Stevenson, live from Montreal:

"Chad Dawson is a decorated champion, he's a light heavyweight champion of the world. He's coming off of a devastating loss to myself and he has to prove and show that not only can he deal with a young knockout artist in Adonis Stevenson, but can he still take a punch, and can he still regain his footing and become the dominant champion that he once was?

"Adonis Stevenson is coming into this fight with a lot of fanfare. He's very powerful, he's very strong, but he's yet to fight a fighter of Chad Dawson's caliber. Can he deal with Chad Dawson the way that he's dealt with everyone else, and do it at home?

"This is a fight you don't want to miss. Tune in June 8th on HBO."

A list of reasonable questions:

  1. Chad Dawson is a decorated champion? Well, I suppose.
  2. "He's coming off of a devastating loss to myself" -- hilarious or super-hilarious quote?
  3. Is 35 "young"?
  4. Has Chad Dawson ever really been a "dominant champion"?
  5. Is Adonis Stevenson really coming into this fight with "a lot of fanfare"?
  6. Is this a fight you want to miss?
