Well he did improve Dawson as a boxer, but eventually SR got under Dawson's skin. From what I heard the final nail was SR not allowing Dawson's family to be in the gym. I don't know the particular details maybe Scully knows about it.
Dawson would be a complete boxer right now had he just stuck with one trainer earlier in his career. By the time he hired Floyd Sr, that was his sixth trainer.
He went to Eddie Muhammad who is more easy going, and all his fights under Muhammad he looked like crap compared to before.
