Before a raucous crowd Saturday night at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, WBA/WBC super middleweight champion Andre “S.O.G.” Ward, (26-0, 14 KOs), defended his titles with an impressive tenth round TKO over WBC light heavyweight champion “Bad” Chad Dawson, (31-2, 17 KOs), on HBO’s Championship Boxing. The end came at 2:45 of round ten when, after suffering his third knockdown of the fight, Dawson told referee Steve Smoger he did not want to continue, prompting Smoger to stop the fight.

With the victory, Ward cemented his status as the most likely eventual successor to Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao at the top of boxing’s pound-for-pound lists . . . Click here for more
