Hopkins-Dawson in works

The promoters of Bernard Hopkins and Chad Dawson are in talks for a fight this fall, possibly in Canada, said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions.

Schaefer, who represents Hopkins, said his client wants to fight Dawson in September or October.

Hopkins, 46, became the oldest man ever to win a major title when he outpointed Canadian Jean Pascal before a large crowd on May 21 in Montreal. Pascal could be on the Hopkins-Dawson undercard, which is the reason it might land in Canada.

Dawson bounced back from his upset loss to Pascal by easily outpointing Adrian Diaconu on the Hopkins-Pascal undercard.
