Things heated up into a shouting match during the Wednesday press conference to announce that WBC light heavyweight champion “Bad” Chad Dawson (31-2, 17 KOs) will face Adonis “Superman” Stevenson (20-1, 17 KOs) on June 8 on HBO Championship Boxing from the famed Bell Centre in Montreal.
“I want to win by KO and I will win by knockout,” Stevenson vowed.
Dawson responded, “Who are you? Nobody knows you. I had to Google you, man. You’re lucky to be getting the opportunity….grown-ups don’t have mohawks. My three-year-old son has a mohawk.”
Tickets, starting at and ranging from $50 in the red section of the Bell Center to $300 at ringside, are available to purchase at Bell Centre, online at www.evenko.ca, by calling GYM at (514) 383.0666 or Club de boxe Champion (514) 376-0980
