Bell Centre, Montreal, Quebec, Canada - A battle of former light heavyweight champions saw Chad Dawson (30-1, 17KOs) win a twelve round unanimous decision over Adrian Diaconu (27-3, 15KOs). The scores were 117-111, 118-110 and 116-112. Dawson is now in line to face the winner of the Bernard Hopkins vs. Jean Pascal rematch.

At the start, Dawson began working behind a stiff right jab. Dawson was very active and throwing a lot of combinations early. Diaconu was having trouble with Dawson's height and long arms. In the second round, a straight left hand shook Diaconu.

In the fourth round, Diaconu was able to land several hard right hands on Dawson, who took the punches well. Dawson came back with some very hard punches in the fifth to push Diaconu around. After the sixth round was over, trainer Emanuel Steward yelled at Dawson to be more active in the fight. Dawson obliged and became a more active boxer in the seventh, but Diaconu started landing good body punches in the final minute.

In the ninth round, Dawson got stunned by a combination and Diaconu started coming on. Dawson quickly recovered and started firing back. Dawson continued to outbox Diaconu for the next few rounds - until Diaconu tried to go all out in the twelfth and final round to score a late knockout but was unable to get it done.

Not much hunger and drive, but he's consistant, and has some good attributes. I'd bet on him in bhop or Pascal fights. I bet (or hope) Steward is going to jump on him to get his ass in gear when he needs to.

One of the most frustrating Boxers to watch due to how mutch obvious ability he has .... Most people would just like to see this guy hit the gas , and he just sits back and pecks away, so annoying to watch.

Chad's performance bored me to tears. He's a technically sound boxer, but absolutely boring to watch. He was in there against an outclassed opponent whom Chad could have put on a brilliant exciting display against, yet he fought as if he took 2 ambiens prior to the fight.

For it being the first fight him and steward actually worked together it was ok.he had some times where I felt he could have had unloaded and went for least a tko and sent some type of statement that he's ready to take be dominant again, but he pulls same stunts with steward as he did with muham...

i respect chad... just not a fan. he has ABSOLUTELY no fire in the ring... his temperament just doesnt match his skillset. he hasnt even tapped into full potential. he got nailed a few times too. which resulted in him backing off... if he had a fraction of pascal's fire, dawson would be ki...
