Agree 100%. Dawson looked lethargic.

Correct. No lethargy in rounds 1 and 2 which he won.

I suppose it was a weight issue as well when Kessler, Froch and Abraham couldn't do a thing against Ward.

I expected Dawson to have no answer to Ward but I thought it would be more a one sided points decision not an absolute curb stomping...so I can understand the weight drain argument, Chad was made to look very flat in there..but maybe thats just the thing he was made to look flat...Dawson isn't a particularly strong fighter with a poor inside game versing a fighter who basically has the opposite of those attributes.

Interesting the word lethargic has come up..because thats a word I've heard used to describe a light heavyweight Dawson before..he just has always looked like that kind of fighter.

Where to for Ward now?

He has sort of snookered himself in regards to moving up to lightheavy..he just absolutely pantsed the man there.

Dawson looked great until he was dropped. The weight drain thing is overblown. Ward is a great fighter and his power has been underrated. Froch looked troubled at times by punches against Ward as well.

His hand must have healed up well. Who's next?

Froch rematch or Abraham rematch not really worth it at this stage. Cleverly or cloud mabey at LHW ?

I still wouldn't mind seeing a froch rematch but I fear he would do even better and make froch have fits

Froch rematch is the best option at 168 otherwise up to 175 is his best move imo.
