    Bernard Hopkins vs Chad Dawson

    B-Hop could go back to his old trick of fighting a #12 contender in a mandatory title defense and I would still be excited to watch it. I'm kinda surprised at how many people are picking him to lose. Unless he's finally turned into an old man, I don't see Chad doing much more than getting tooled.

    Which brings up the question, how much fight does Bernard have left in him? Could he be a 50 y/o champion?

    I'm not sure but I don't think he should be an underdog considering the way he tooled the last guy he fought.

    I'm assuming it has to do with his success against Tarver a few years back, and takes no consideration into the beating he took from Pascal recently, who Hopkins just embarressed.

    Hopkins managers choose his fights very wisely.
    He will win.

    I honestly wouldn't dare placing odds on this one.

    By chance there was a youtube link on Facebook to watch the Cleverly v Bellew punch up from 7:30PM today and the offer of Hopkins v Dawson.

    Anyway, I signed up to it- cos it's free - although it's clear that this will need to PPV in the near future.

    The B-Hop v Chad fight will likely be a few hours from now in the middle of the effing night here in the UK. I'll see if I can find the link and post.

    OK, I've just watched Nathan Cleverly v Tony Bellew - it was effing great.

    The good news is that it was Free. Bernard Hopkins v Chad Dawson will also be shown for Free so here's the place to go www.boxnation.tv/ which I think I accessed via Facebook. There are now showing a back catalogue in the build up to B-Hop v Chad but it's at 2AM hre in UK so I'm going to bed.

    'Night all.

    Glad I didn't, that was a disgrace.

    Spoiler:
    I guess this proves: MMA > Boxing

    What a fucking disgrace ! Its been a while since I've seen such an incompetent ruling - it screams of corruption.
    Dawson said he ' feels like a champion ' ???? He should feel like a pug and a cheat.
    This decision needs to be overturned and once Hopkins has had time for this shoulder to heal - they need to finish the fight.
    Hopkins camp is furious and I don't blame them.

    Just seen it on FB - there's a pro-Boxing link. Well I saw the attempted unshipping Throw (although Dawson just about held himself back from the throw but it was clearly in his Mind, you can tell by his Left Glove about to wrap Hopkins' leg - and then he unwrapped...)

    No Contest. Re-Match please. No arguments nor time-wasting soft Defences.
