Dawson Interested in Facing Kovalev Down The Road

By Ryan Burton

Former light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson (31-3, 17KOs) hopes to sign with a promoter soon. As previously reported, Dawson has left his long time promoter Gary Shaw and is a free agent.

"I am looking to sign with which every promoter can get me back to where I need to be and has my best interests at heart.  I am going to be looking to pick up where I left off," Dawson stated.

The 31-year-old Dawson plans on fighting a couple of tune ups and then wants to fight any of the top fighters in the division including Sergey Kovalev who faces Ismael Silakh on Saturday in an HBO televised fight.

"I've been watching him.  He is a good fighter but that isn't the guy I am looking for right now.  I want to get a couple tune up fights and get back in my groove and get my confidence back but like I said I still feel like I am the best.  I watch all these guys and feel I'm still the best" Dawso explained.

Dawson doesn't have a date locked inn for his return but hopes to return shortly.

"I am looking to have something soon. I want to be back I the ring as soon as possible," Dawson told

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza;13967447]I'm a fan I Kovalev and I'd pick him to win but Dawson could give him a few issues. Id like to see it. Dawson coming off 2 Loss's is still one of the top guys at LHW as sad…
