Hopkins vs Dawson Showdown Looms For The Fall

By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg

According to WBC light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins (52-5-2, 32KOs), his anticipated first title defense, against mandatory challenger Chad Dawson (30-1, 17KOs), will likely fall on a September date on HBO. Hopkins will return for the first time since the history winning effort over Jean Pascal in May. On that same card, Dawson won a lopsided decision over Adrian Diaconu to secure his future fight with Hopkins. Their fight could be pushed back, as Dawson's promoter Gary Shaw has stated in several recent interviews that a date in October or November is also possible.
