Dawson Eyes Bute-Pascal Winner, Hopkins Trilogy

By Luis Sandoval

Chad Dawson is looking to get back in the win column and show that he’s still the best Light Heavyweight in the world as he takes on hard hitting Adonis Stevenson this Saturday night live on HBO. Dawson is completely focused on Stevenson but he also talked about possible fights that could be in store for him should he be victorious when he was on the most recent episode of BoxingScene Radio.

A fight he will have his eye on is the Canadian showdown between Jean Pascal and Lucian Bute as the winner would be a ideal opponent for Dawson should he be victorious. Dawson has long wanted to avenge his loss to Pascal and also wouldn’t mind taking on Bute should he win.

“I'm definitely going to be watching that fight and looking at the winner and I'll definitely be lobbying for the winner of that fight. I think Pascal has his hands full that night. Both of them have their hands full. It's going to be a good fight, a tough fight and I will be lobbying for the winner of that fight” Dawson would tell BoxingScene Radio.

During the interview, former foe Bernard Hopkins was brought up as despite losing to Dawson last year, he has gone on to make history for a second time and he became the oldest fighter to win a major world title  as he defeated then IBF champion Tavoris Cloud.  While we might assume business is done between both men, Dawson informed he’d be willing to fight the old man for a third time.

“Don't get me wrong, I would love to fight Bernard a third time but the question is would he like to see me for a third time. He's making excuses now saying that he didn't get to train well and train properly for the second fight against me. I mean, come on man. Same thing would've happened whether he trained hard or not. It would've been the same outcome” expressed Dawson.

“It definitely pissed me off after he fought Cloud on HBO when the commentators were saying that he said he didn't get to train properly because of the shoulder injury which he suffered in the first fight which everyone knows there was no injury. That he didn't get to train properly for the rematch so that's the only reason I won the fight. If he wants to do it again a third time, we can do it. I'm ready for it. But I don't think he wants to do it a third time”.

While Bernard is a champion again at 175, it remains to be seen if he’d be willing to take on Dawson again after getting beat pretty soundly in their last encounter.
