Injury postpones Dawson-Tarver bout

The March 14 light heavyweight title rematch between champ Chad Dawson and Antonio Tarver has been postponed due to a hand injury Dawson suffered in sparring on Tuesday.

"I'm bummed. I really wanted Chad to get back in the ring to show his wares and move on," promoter Gary Shaw told "I'm sure Chad is pretty upset too.

"It's not a break, it's a ligament," Shaw said. "In two weeks, he'll be able to go back into training. Chad should be ready to fight as early as mid-April."
