New WBC light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson and promoter Gary Shaw spoke the boxing media at the Chick Hearn Media room at the Staples Center following his controversial win over Bernard Hopkins on Saturday night.

Shaw was the first to speak to the assembled press and quickly informed everyone of what Dawson said to Hopkins after the fight. “I will tell you all what Chad told Bernard, ‘Hopkins you’re a pussy. Hopkins was saying he was a gangster you are not a gangster Hopkins. You know why? Because a gangster would get up and fight.’

Shaw added “Chad is really a great kid and soft spoken. I knew he would never come up and talk that way so I wanted you to know exactly what happened.”

When it was Dawson’s turn to address the media he said: “I want to thank Bernard Hopkins for making it an easy night for me. We put in a lot of work for this fight. We trained for eight weeks and this goes to show why Bernard was ducking me all these years.”

“You know what was going through my mind, please get up so we can finish the fight. Don’t end it like this. I really put in the work for this fight,”

“I am not satisfied at all. I didn’t get to show the hard work we put in camp. I didn’t break a sweat tonight.”
