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