Dawson Tells Pascal at The Presser: I Will Finish You Off!

By Mel "Sabaka" Ohlhoft

Staples Center, Los Angeles - Following Chad Dawson's controversial two round stoppage of Bernard Hopkins, the new WBC light heavyweight champion traded words at the post fight press conference with Jean Pascal, who flew in from Canada to watch the fight live. 

In 2010, Dawson (31-1, 18KOs) lost his title and his undefeated record to Pascal (26-2, 16 KOs). Pascal built a solid lead in their fight, but Dawson was coming on strong in the eleventh round - and he had Pascal in a lot of trouble. As Dawson was punishing Pascal, the referee stopped the action in order to have Dawson's cut checked out by a ringside physician. Earlier in the fight, Dawson suffered a cut above his eye from an accidental clash of heads. When it was ruled the cut was too severe, the fight went to the scorecards and Pascal won a technical decision.

Dawson, who wants nothing more than to face Pascal in a rematch, started the fireworks early at the presser. Dawson promised Pascal that he would win the rematch with a knockout.

"You can say what you want, but you were about to get done. I'm going to finish you off in the rematch brother. Trust me. You lost to 46-year-old man, twice. You were out on your feet brother. Sit down, you got lucky [against me]. Sit down with your tight pants. This time we're going to do it in the U.S., and we'll see what happens," Dawson shouted in Pascal's direction.

Dawson is going to destroy Pascal if he fights as aggressive as he did in the later rounds the whole fight. Pascal has no stamina, and gets beaten easily by mindgames. Hopkins will run from rematching Dawson, mark my words.

It's great to see Chad showing some proper emotion. As a fan of Chad, his prior attitude was always a little concerning, he just seemed to be breeze through everything. Hopefully this new found aggression carries over into the ring,…

"Sit down with your tight pants! Sit down with your tight jeans, you a fool" If this is a classic quotable to you and you feel that he "owned" Pascal at the post fight presser then it doesn't take a…
