WBC light heavyweight champion “Bad Chad” Dawson will be defending his title on June 8th at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada against Adonis “Superman” Stevenson. Dawson was originally supposed to defend his title in a rematch against Jean Pascal but Pascal pulled out to meet fellow Canadian Lucian Bute for the NABF title. The fight has been confirmed by Dawson’s trainer, former world champion Eddie Mustafa Muhammad. “We are working hard and putting in the road work on Mt. Charleston and we are looking for a victory upon fight time,” said Mustafa. His comments on Stevenson? “Very durable. He will have to be able to take a whole lot of punishment because we are going to be dishing it out from round one until the end of the fight!”
