Former light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson last fought in June when he suffered a first round knockout loss to Adonis Stevenson in Montreal, Canada in an HBO televised fight. Even though he has lost two fights in a row, the 31-year-old Dawson is still very confident and is looking to get his career back on track.

"I am looking to get back in the ring as soon as possible. As far as my career, in my last fight I had an unfortunate loss but I can't cry over it. That is part of boxing but I am ready to get back in the game and continue where I left off as one of the best light heavyweights in the world. I believe that I am still one of the best, if not the best light heavyweights in the world and I can't wait to get back in the ring and show everyone what I am made of," Dawson stated.

Looking back on Dawson's career, he really hasn't had any easy fights over the past five years. The Connecticut native thinks that he would benefit from a tune up fight and that ultimately that is the best route to get his career back on track.

"At this point I think a tune-up would be necessary. As long as I was the light heavyweight champion of the world, I haven't take any easy fights. I have fought whoever was in front of me," said Dawson.

Dawson, who has been promoted the past several years by Gary Shaw, also revealed to BoxingScene.com that he is now a promotional free agent and said that he is looking to sign with a promoter who is willing to work with him and help him get back to where he was he was prior to the Ward and Stevenson fights. He said that he is willing to talk to any promoter who has a sincere interest in his career.

"As far as the Adonis Stevenson fight, I had never heard of him. I just knew he was a big puncher. Like I said earlier, I don't duck nobody and what happened in there happened. I am not going to let that be a setback for me. I am ready to get back in the ring plus I am a free agent right now and I am looking for a promoter. I am looking to sign with one of the best promoters out there. Whoever is interested, I am ready to sit down with them and talk with them," Dawson explained.

Even though he has suffered back to back knockout losses, Dawson said that he has absolutely zero doubt that he still is at the top of his game. Prior to those two fights Dawson really hadn't taken a lot of punishment and feels that he still has plenty of gas left in the tank.

"I am definitely still at my peak. Regardless of what happened in the Adonis Stevenson fight I have never taken a lot of punches. In the Andre Ward fight I was dehydrated and drained. I couldn't really defend myself and after the Ward fight I went back right into another big fight. That is what I mean by saying in my career I was never able to dictate and do what was for the best interest in my career and that is what I am looking to do now," Dawson told BoxingScene.com.

Chad has the khan-judah effect. No matter how bad they look, people always give them the benefit of the doubt .

[QUOTE=simms601]That's right buddy, you tell him! He's only in it for the money, because you know all others fighters fight for free! That's what I love about boxing, fighters who just "like" boxing fight for nothing, they just fight and physically damage themselves for free. That's what it's ...

You pay Chad 5$ or a million $, he will still fight exactly the same. The guy fights like he's sparring, he never learned there's a difference.
