Default Re: Did the first Hopkins-Dawson fight, do anything to change your opinion.....

I still think B-Hop will win The first didn't tell us a great deal as It was only 1 and a bit Rounds and I'll be honest I'm just not sold on Dawson. I suppose B-Hop's run will come to an end at some stage I just don't see It being Dawson ending It.

I think if the best Dawson shows up and his head is right and he can work for 12 rounds then he'll win. I just don't think the best Dawson will show up! I think he might be a little jaded with all of the politics after the first fight, and even in those two rounds he looked sick to death of Hopkins style and patience.

If it goes passed the midway point and Dawson isn't getting results I think he'll disintegrate and Hopkins will pick him off. My best guess is a stinker of a fight ending in a wide split decision.

It just makes me more confident of a Hopkins win, I might lump more on.

Hopkins old-mans him. Dont get me wrong it wont be pretty, but i can see Dawson becoming easily frustrated after the mid-rounds.

I've just edited it again to include Atlas' thoughts. You may wanna' check it out, if you're gonna' put money on. It may either change your opinion, or convince you further of a Hopkins win (with what he says at the end about Hopkins now being able to go back to the drawing board now that he knows what Dawson is kinda' about).
