Chad Dawson won the WBC light heavyweight title last night with a second round TKO of Bernard Hopkins. However, there is some controversy over the ending of the fight, which didn't end with a knockout punch, but with Dawson picking up Hopkins and body slammed him onto the canvas.
Referee Pat Russell ruled that Dawson did not foul Hopkins, despite the controversial move. Russell stopped the fight and declared the TKO as he ruled Hopkins "could not continue because of injury". According to the AP, Hopkins' spokesman later stated that he dislocated the joint connecting his collarbone and shoulder blade.
