BOXING BABES

These babes can't get enough ringside action.

I cannot identify what Chad Dawson’s greatest attribute as a fighter is yet because I have not fought him, so that remains to be seen.

There is not one thing that’s dangerous about him: He is a good, all-around fighter. His credentials speak for themselves, and when you go into a megafight or a championship fight, you prepare for the best and you prepare for everything. I’m not locked in for one thing; we are prepared for the best Chad Dawson on Sept. 8.

With every opponent and every fight, there are multiple things that you prepare for. And we are prepared for the best of Chad Dawson. We are prepared for anything and everything. If you prepare for anything else than that, you are selling yourself short.

This camp is no different than my past training camps. It’s not a cliche; it’s the way it is. I don’t pick certain camps that I go hard in; I’m always training to the maximum. I feel like every fight, I’m in the best shape of my life. That’s the way I think a champion is supposed to prepare. I respect the game and the game has always respected me, and nothing is different in this training camp.

"24/7 Road to Ward/Dawson" debuts Saturday, Aug. 25 on HBO at 12 midnight ET/PT. Ward vs. Dawson takes place Saturday, Sept. 8 live on HBO at 9:45 p.m. ET.
