IBO light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson (29-0, 17KOs) is still willing to drop down to 168-pounds to fight some of the big names in the super middleweight division. The light heavyweight division is running a little dry and most of the big names are veterans who are past their best.
At 168, the roster is loaded with talent, names and big money fights. Mikkel Kessler, Lucian Bute, Andre Ward, Andre Dirrell, Carl Froch, Arthur Abraham, Kelly Pavlik and Allan Green are just some of the names at the weight.
Dawson wants to wait until Showtime's Super Six tournament is over, so he can challenge the winner to a fight. Most of the top names, other than Bute, are locked into the Super Six. The finals of the tournament is scheduled for next year. Dawson is set to return in August with WBC champion Jean Pascal as the target opponent.
"There is more competition at 168. There are more guys who are my age. There are more guys who are physically strong and match up evenly with me as opposed to the guys in the light heavyweight division, but we'll see what happens. We'll see what happens with that tournament and hopefully the winner of that tournament is willing to take a fight with me," Dawson told BoxingScene.com's Ernest Gabion.
