I think this is a very risky fight for Dawson. He is coming off a bad TKO loss in his last fight, some fighters never recover from those kind of TKO losses. He hasn't fought in over six months, there is bound to be some ring rust which could effect his stamina. Not only that but Adonis Stevenson is a very skilled boxer with a huge punch and very good stamina.
Stevenson will take on Darnell Boone next Friday, Stevenson's sole career loss is to Boone, and if he avenges that loss he will be full of confidence going into a fight with Dawson.
Dawson has to be favoured, but Stevenson is a very live underdog in this fight. Who has more chance of winning, Stevenson against Dawson or Bute against Pascal??
