I am hoping for Dawson to KO Hopkins. I have been tired of Hopkins style for years and I would like for him to retire.

I predict 10 round KO. Thoughts?

As a Boxing addict, I watched each painful moment. I came away saddened and angry at their performances. In my eyes, both individuals do not deserve a title. At least, Bernard has a valid excuse, being 47. Now Chad is different, this is probably my 3rd time observing Dawson's skills, I was not expressed, again. Yes, he can box. Dawson has limited power, let alone anything else, he's just there.

To the point of this rant, the Light Heavyweight Division is pathetic. Its full of the walking dead (Boxing retirees), those Boxers who cannot compete at the Heavy's. Roy Jones/Bernard/Tarver/fill-in the blank, have extended their careers when they should have retired. I am begging for someone to please take hold of this division to regain some Boxing respectability. This is example #1, of why Boxing fans have diverted their attention to the MMA. To save face, I propose banishing the division.

Andre Ward needs to move up to 175lbs and clean out the division.

These guys chose a hugging match instead of a boxing match.

You have to admit, Bhop is still a crafty fighter, I bet in a street match he would have crushed Dawson

Maybe Hop should try a UFC fight then- He is way to past his prime as far as boxing goes. I would hate to see him stick around too long and get hurt or end up like Roy Jones with numerous Ko losses.
