Dawson Injured, Pulls Out of Tarver Fight
By Sam Gregory: Ring magazine reported, the No. 2 light heavyweight contender Chad Dawson will have to withdraw from his scheduled March 14th rematch with former champ Antonio Tarver after Dawson injured a ligament in his left hand during training; this according to Dawson’s manager Mike Criscio.
Dawson sustained the injury during a sparring session and will require a soft cast. The injury is expected to take two weeks to heal enough before Dawson can resume training. According to Criscio, the injury effectively throws off Dawson’s training schedule enough to cancel the March 14th re-match.
