 OAKLAND, CA, September, 08, 2012 – Andre Ward continued to improve and show new dimensions in style and temperament in his most impressive victory to date as he executed an absolutely savage and relentless beat down against the hapless Chad Dawson, eventually ending matters in the 10th round.

The packed house of 8500 heartily booed “Bad” Chad Dawson of New Haven, Connecticut (31-1-0, 17 kos) as he was the first to enter the ring. Chad was all business and no theatrics as he walked briskly to the ring looking big, strong, and confident.  The entire arena rose their feet for native son Andre “S.O.G.” Ward’s (25-0-0, 13 kos) ring walk and stayed on their feet for the entire duration of introductions showing their love for the local phenom.

The Oldest Champion in Boxing History Bernard ‘The Executioner’ Hopkins to Face Former World Champion ‘Bad’ Chad Dawson on October 15 in “Believe It or Not: Hopkins vs. Dawson”

The WBC and Ring Magazine Light Heavyweight World Championship Fight Will Take Place at Staples Center in Los Angeles and Will Be Presented Live by HBO Pay-Per-View®


NEW YORK, NY, August 9, 2011 — It is hard to believe what WBC and Ring Magazine Light Heavyweight World Champion Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins has achieved during his 23-year long professional career.  He was the middleweight champion for ten years, notched a record 20 successful title defenses of that crown and at 46-years-old, has become the oldest fighter in boxing history to win a world title.  It’s also hard to believe that a young lion like former World Champion “Bad” Chad Dawson, who has wanted a shot at Hopkins for years, will finally get his opportunity to stop Hopkins from continuing his record-breaking journey.  “Believe It Or Not: Hopkins vs. Dawson” takes place on Saturday, October 15 at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, Calif. and will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View® beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/ 6:00 p.m. PT.

In addition to this championship main event showdown, the televised pay-per-view undercard will also feature Antonio DeMarco vs. Jorge Linares in a 12-round fight for the vacant WBC Lightweight World Title and Kendall Holt vs. Danny Garcia in 12-round bout for the vacant NABO Junior Welterweight Title which will also be an eliminator for the number one rating by the WBC and the number two rating by the IBF.

Valero Solidifies His Title Claim at Lightweight

Valero retains World Boxing Council (WBC) lightweight title

MONTERREY, Mexico (Feb. 7, 2010) –   Edwin Valero took the iniciative from the first round of the fight, throwing straight rights and lefts, which had Demarco in trouble on a few occasions.  In the second round, Demarco bloodied Valero’s nose with a hard left, even though Valero took the pucnh well.

In this same round, Valero recieved a blow from Demarco’s elbow and forearm, which caused a huge cut over his right eye.  But the cut didn’t matter to Valero, and he pushed the action, beating his opponent savagely round after round.  In the eighth round, it seemed as if DeMarco did not want to continue the bout, but held on until after the ninth round, when he finally abandoned the match due to the severe punishment he had been reciving.

Valero looked full of energy and his reflexes were sharp.  I think tht if the fight had lasted the entire 12 rounds, the Venezuelan would have taken the victory by unanimous decision.

CBZ Exclusive:  Monterrey, MX.  Desde el inicio del primer round Edwin tomó la iniciativa del combate lanzando con sus dos manos golpes rectos de izquierda y derecha, donde en varias ocaciones puso en malas condiciones a Demarco, en el segundo episodio Demarco sangro la nariz de Valero con un fuerte impacto con su mano izquierda que asimilo muy facilmente el Venezolano.

En ese mismo round valero recibio un golpe con el codo y antebrazo de su adversario, el cual ocaciono una gran cortada arriba de su ojo derecho.

Pero esto no le importo a Valero, por que el busco la pelea, propinandole duro castigo round por round a su adversario quien en el octavo round se veia que ya no queria seguir el combate, fue entonces que en decimo round abandona el la pelea por el exceso castigo que estaba recibiendo.

Edwin Valero se veia lleno de energia y reflejos, creo que si la pelea hubiera duraro todos los 12 rounds, de todas maneras el Venezolano se hubiera llevado la victoria por Unanime Desicion.
