The career of Chad Dawson, 31-3, 17 KO’s, is most likely over. A one-punch knockout loss at the hands of Adonis Stevenson, 21-1, 17 KO’s, in the first round that ended it in 76 seconds may have marked the end of a career.
A left hand dropped Dawson and it was waved off shortly after. If the loss to Andre Ward wasn’t convincing enough that his reflexes have diminished, this is. It was a devastating loss for Dawson.
