Dawson vs Stevenson: Live stream, results, and round-by-round coverage

Tonight on HBO, Chad Dawson defends the WBC light heavyweight belt against Adonis Stevenson, and Yuriorkis Gamboa faces Darleys Perez.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Chad Dawson and Yuriorkis Gamboa make their HBO returns tonight in Montreal, with Dawson hitting the road to face Quebec favorite Adonis Stevenson, a power-punching super middleweight contender jumping up to light heavyweight in the main event, and Gamboa facing Colombia's Darleys Perez in the co-feature.

Dawson (31-2, 17 KO) and Gamboa (22-0, 16 KO) are both the big favorites, and our staffers picked both "Bad" Chad and GAMBOA (that's his only nickname as far as I care) to win with relative ease. But both are in against dangerous punchers, or in Gamboa's case, what appears to be a dangerous puncher.

Stevenson (20-1, 17 KO) has smashed a lot of opponents so far, but none of them are on Dawson's level, nor were they as physically big as the defending titleholder. Perez (28-0, 19 KO) has the pretty record, but he's pretty much totally untested, and has never faced anyone like Gamboa.

Will we see an upset? Maybe two? I don't know! That's why you watch to find out!
