HBO World Championship Boxing presents Andre Ward vs. Chad Dawson, Antonio DeMarco vs. John Molina live from the Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA on September 8.
Andre Ward (25-0, 13 KOs) is the best super middleweight in the world, even before capturing the WBC and WBA 168-pound titles, he was already a United States Olympic gold medalist at the 2004 Olympic games in Athens, Greece, Ward is the last American to win a gold medal for boxing. Chad Dawson (31-1, 17 KOs) is the current WBC light heavyweight champion and like Ward he is considered one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world, for Dawson this will be one of his toughest challenges having to drop down a weight division and take on the best fighter in the division, but if he wins he could win he would be a two division world champion and make a name for himself beating a fighter of Wards pedigree.
The co-main event will be an exciting style match-up between two very aggressive action fighters Antonio DeMarco of Mexico versus John Molina of California. DeMarco (27-2-1, 20 KOs) currently holds the WBC lightweight championship and is known for his pressure, he has only two losses and one of them was to the late power puncher Edwin Valero. He won the WBC title in 2011 after stopping Jorge Linares in round 11 after being down on the scorecards. Molina (24-1, 19 KOs) will be fighting for a world title for the first time, he is known for his exciting come forward style of fighting and is determined to achieve his dream of becoming a world boxing champion by defeating DeMarco.
