Ward vs Dawson

Andre Ward (25-0-0, 13 KOs) will fight Chad Dawson (31-1-0, 17 KOs) in a 12-round WBA World and WBC super middleweight title fight on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. The fight will be contested for Ward's WBA World and WBC super middleweight titles while Dawson currently holds the WBC light heavyweight title and will be coming down to 168 lb weight class to fight Ward.


Ward and Dawson are both top-level fighters who have to this point struggled to attract a big following. Ward has done well in Oakland in the past, namely for his big fight with Mikkel Kessler, but fights after that at the same venue struggled to bring in fans, though the ones who did show up were vocal and passionate.

 

The scheduled 12-rounder will be televised live on HBO® World Championship Boxing at 10:15 p.m. ET/PT.
