Hayward native Andre Ward dismantled Chad Dawson in what many speculated to be the fight of the year, but really turned out to be a blowout.
Dawson bowed out during the tenth round after taking devastating blows from Ward in the third and fourth round, and being dominated in each of the rounds that followed.
With the victory, Ward improved his career record to 26-0, and dropped Dawson's to 31-2. Ward, at age 28, has already defeated the top fighters in his class, and now has taken down the top light heavyweight in the world in Dawson.
The new question to ask is not who will Andre Ward fight next, but who is left to fight Andre Ward? Ward has a long career ahead of him, and already is making his case for best fighter in the world. The Tri-City area, as well as the rest of the world, will be watching him on his journey.
