Former WBC light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson (32-3, 18KOs) returned to action on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, and stopped George Blades in the first round.

Dawson, 31-years-old, is going right back in the gym for a planned return in September. He want to stay active after taking a year off following back to back TKO defeats to Andre Ward and Adonis Stevenson.

Earlier this year, Dawson signed a contract with influential adviser Al Haymon. He says Haymon is giving him the opportunity to reestablish himself when most promoters turned their backs to him. 

"I'm right back in the gym after this. I can't afford to take time off. This is the second chapter of my career and hopefully it will be good," Dawson said.

"[Haymon] brings stability. He's giving me a shot that most promoters wouldn't give me right now. he believes in me and I want to show him that I appreciate that. I want to end this year great and start next year great."

Maybe now Haymon can get him a live body and he can get in shape but this should be his last shot, he is the epitome of so much unrealized potential.

He is fighting in the afternoon in front of 50 people because his stardom was all ****ing hype man; one of the worst cases of it on HBO's part and a sign of things to come. The dude had no fans, no grass roots following. No one ever liked him. There were like 200 people in the damn audience for ...

So much hate in this thread. The guy is on two fight losing streak being KO'd in his last one. He's trying to bounce back and all you keyboard / sofa bound losers do is just **** on him. You guys should be praising the fact he's trying to get himself together. It's tough bouncing back and I comm...

Dawson reminds me of another J. Taylor, Taylor hit a wall same as Dawson. I doubt Dawson will regain the status he once had in the sport of boxing. Even though he's been out the ring he didn't remain dedicated to the game like a true fighter should in order to stay at the top. Dude blew up to ov...
