HBO Boxing After Dark: Dawson vs. Stevenson airs tonight, Saturday, June 8 live on HBO with a fight time of 10:00 p.m. ET. Bloody Elbow will have live fight coverage all night.
For Dawson, this is a defense of his position at the top of the 175 pound Light Heavyweight division and a chance to put last year's crushing loss to Andre Ward behind him. It's also potentially an opportunity to gain some fans if he can break free of his normal mold and turn in a more exciting fight. For Stevenson, it's the first shot at a real name fighter and a chance to use his power advantage to score the upset. A win here would be huge for his career.
Opening the HBO card will Yuriorkis Gamboa vs. Darleys Perez. Gamboa is the obvious favorite in this battle of undefeated fighters.
