Chad Dawson last stepped foot in the ring on September 8th, 2012 losing a lopsided fight against super middleweight kingpin Andre Ward. Dawson made the most sacrifice going into the fight by going down in weight which left him drained, He did make the weight and did show up to fight and humbly resigned in the tenth round when he knew he could no longer continue and did not want to suffer any more damage.
So what did that fight do to him mentally? Would it change the way he fights in the future? He has switched trainers yet again in his career to try and fix the “problems” in which he is suffering. “His mental state is perfect. He feels comfortable and always felt comfortable since we met,” said Dawson’s current trainer Eddie Mustafa Muhammad. “We had one loss so he changed trainers. He found out that didn’t work so he came back to me because he felt comfortable with me.”
Dawson’s next fight will take place on June 8th in Montreal, Quebec, Canada against hard hitting Adonis “Superman” Stevenson in what will be Stevenson’s biggest fight to date, but a measuring stick to see if Dawson will be the same after the Ward fight. Will Stevenson be able to land a big punch against Dawson or will Dawson’s experience be too much for Stevenson? “He (Stevenson) won’t be able to step up for a simple reason. It’s just too much experience. You know, he is going to see things he ain’t never seen before and that’s what he is going to get hit with. Don’t be surprised if Chad stops him.”
