WBC world light-heavyweight champion Tomasz Adamek (31-0-0) made the third defence of his title at the Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee, Florida. In the opposite corner was Chad Dawson (22-0-0), a resident of New Haven, Connecticut.
Both boxers scored a knockdown a piece, Adamek, in the 7th from a left hook to the body and Dawson in the 10th round from a Straight right hand by Adamek. Slow-motion replay by Showtime proved that the champion actually tripped over Dawson's foot just after the left hook landed.
Dawson went on to win by unanimous decision.
