It was a big night for boxing.
WBC light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson (31-2, 17 KOs) came down in weight to fight WBC-WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward (26-0, 14 KOs) in a mega fight between two great fighters.
The result was a very game showdown but Andre Ward proved to be just too good and too fast for Dawson to figure out.
The fight ended with Ward finishing off Dawson with a combination at 2:45 of the 10th. After the last knockdown a dazed Dawson was asked by the ref if he wanted to continue but his answer was “it’s over, I’m finished, I’m done”.
The only disappointing point of the night was famed commentator Jim Lapley’s ridiculous lensless hipster glasses. It’s starting to be an epidemic, we need to put an end to it.
