There's no denying it - this is not the most compelling fight we've seen in boxing's red hot 2013. Dawson is not a fan favorite, and Stevenson is largely untested at the top. But there still are some interesting aspects of the fight to break down. And who better to offer his analysis than champion Andre Ward? Ward is the last man to defeat Dawson, and is the champion in Stevenson's normal weight class.

Here then is HBO Boxing's Andre Ward Scouting Report on Dawson vs. Stevenson. Ward's take:

Chad Dawson: Needs to show that he can still take a punch and that he has the potential to still be a dominant champion.

Adonis Stevenson: Needs to prove he is ready for the step up.

Nothing revelatory here, but a nice, simple breakdown from Ward, along with footage of his fight with Dawson, which is always fun to watch.
