Dawson has enough pop that opponents can't just walk through his punches. He hurt Adamek pretty bad, and Adamek has an iron chin. He can knock down Hopkins if he lands a good shot.

Dawson has all the tools to not only beat Hopkins but beat him handily. Hopkins should get a lot of credit for even taking this fight and while I hope he can somehow prove me wrong and pull of another sensational victory I doubt Hopkins can overcome all of Dawson's physical advantages.

Hopkins may have been able to outwork and out box Pascal but those tactics won't work against Dawson, he's going to have to really raise his game and turn back the clock once more to beat him. Hopkins isn't getting any younger and he looked slower than ever against Pascal which doesn't bode well against such a quick fighter like Dawson.

If Hopkins has learned from his losses with Taylor, he will not let those combos come first, and he will be the aggressor. Can't sit on the outside with those type guys got to have them react to you.

On thing that I haven't heard on here: Dawson has a terrible habit. He only throws the same patterns of punches. Since he is rangy and fast he can get away with it. But, I think with a guy like BHop, that could be a really big disadvantage. The one thing Taylor did was throw akward stuff, and change his pattern. Dawson doesn't do this...

BHOP wins, taking the lead, bullying. Dawson's offense is limited to the same patterns, that will not work against BHop.
Dawson doesn't throw in patterns, it may look like it, but he doesn't. It's because of Dawson's handspeed he's able to throw 4-5 punchers without being countered.

Also it's important to remember Dawson is from a new breed of mentally weak fighters like Andre Dirrel, Deyvon Alexander. He could quit, it wouldn't surprise me.
