Hardly a compliment to Dawson that he's been hand picked as the guy they think a career cricketer with a crash course in boxing can beat. Still he gets for his trouble the trip, a payday and an opponent he should have a chance of beating.

'Freddie' Flintoff down in the 2nd, but had a win, and the fans got their 8 minutes worth.

Well done to him. Apparently Denton Vassell looked red hot.

Denton Vassell looked very good indeed against previously undefeated Ronnie Heffron. Wouldnt mind seeing Vassell vs Frankie Gavin for the Commonwealth & British Welterweight Titles in 2013.

The discussion about his feelings lasted longer than the fight

I got through a couple of rounds to the knockdown of Freddie....What can you say. It is what it is. If Freddie keeps trying then good on him. I prefer this to part time boxers.

I don't know that you've made any revelations by saying you've seen better amateurs. I would expect that.

I will say though, that those open paw punches from Freddie wouldn't have had any weight behind them (not dangerous) and could do him more damage than anything.

True. It was Flintoff's first fight of any kind, and with a very limited preparation. Most guys have a year or two of training behind them before venturing into the ring.

Flintoff threw mainly arm punches. Particularly with his right, but that's about what I expected.

Dawson was specifically chosen because they thought Flintoff with zero experience, could beat him, and that's how it panned out.

That was certainly the case, but I don't know if Freddie really deserved the victory.

They only gave Dawson a 10-9 for the second round, where he scored the knockdown. If you gave Dawson a 10-8 and Freddie the other three rounds, it's a 38-38 draw.

My bad, hahaha!

In any case, the scoring should have been that instead of 39-38, so I guess one of the rounds was scored a 10-10.
