Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City - “Bad” Chad Dawson (31-1, 17 KOs) won a twelve round majority decision over Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins (52-6-2, 32 KOs) to capture the WBC light heavyweight championship. The scores were 117-111, 117-111 for Dawson and 114-114 for the draw.

Undefeated heavyweight contender Seth “Mayhem” Mitchell (25-0-1, 19 KOs) was rocked bad in the first round but came back to stop Chazz Witherspoon (30-3, 22 KOs) in the third round to capture the vacant NABO title. Witherspoon was down in the third.
