Dawson Googles Stevenson

By Matt Casavant

Light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson (31-2, 17KOs) is used to having to defend his title in enemy territory, however his familiarity with his next opponent, Adonis “Superman” Stevenson (20-1, 17KOs) required some investigation. “Nobody knows you, I had to Google your ass,” quipped Dawson, who clearly wasn’t amused by Stevenson’s claims that the Champion had only beaten men over 40 or when their careers were near the end.

The exchanges at the opening press conference today between the two fighters were quite entertaining and one can only hope the verbal jabs will translate into pugilistic ones when both men meet in the main event of the June 8th Boxing Grand Prix Gala, at the Bell Centre in Montreal. Although the Pascal-Bute Canadian super fight will be taking place only two weeks prior to Dawson-Stevenson, the light heavy championship clash is still expected to garner its fair share of attention as it will take place during the prestigious F1 Grand Prix weekend potentially attracting international fight fans to witness the showdown.
