BoxingScene.com has been advised that a fight between WBC light heavyweight champion "Bad" Chad Dawson (31-2, 17KOs) and hard-punching super middleweight Adonis Stevenson (19-1, 16KOs) is being discussed for June 8th on HBO.

Dawson was orginally scheduled to face Jean Pascal in a rematch on May 25th, but Pascal headed in another direction by reaching an agreement to face Lucian Bute in a high profile Canadian super-fight. Stevenson, the mandatory challenger to IBF champion Carl Froch, was left out in the cold when Froch finalized a deal to face WBA champion Mikkel Kessler in a rematch on May 25th in the UK.

Stevenson has a stay-busy rematch with Darnell Boone on March 22 at the Bell Centre in Montreal. Boone handed Stevenson his only career loss with a big upset two round TKO win in April of 2010.

Dawson is looking to bounce back from his September knockout loss to Andre Ward. For the match with Ward, Dawson dropped down to 168 pounds, a weight he hadn't fought at since 2006. This Stevenson fight will be fought at light heavyweight limit of 175 for Dawson's title.

Nothing to argue about. It's fact. Never mind he made a mistake in dropping down a division. That's obvious. And he adm...

[QUOTE=thuggery]Not even sure if I'll be interested in watching this quitter anymore.[/QUOTE] Someone wake me up when this one is over. Dawson will find a way to either stink out the joint or quit.

Not even sure if I'll be interested in watching this quitter anymore.

[QUOTE=RlCKY]They can do better than that for Dawson. Kovalev?[/QUOTE] Just came off a TKO loss to the best fighter from 168, at 168. This is the best they could do. Kovalev IMO just made noise for the first time with his Campillo win, Stevenson has been one noisy f-cker for quite some time. B...
