Default calzaghe dawson hopkins

i may have missed something here so excuse me if i have, but all the talk of joe fightin bhop again or dawson, why is there no talk of bhop/dawson?

on another point im thinking joe will prob retire, so if bhop/dawson happens, bhop schools him imo, (only seen dawson against johnson and tarver so not impressed) could hopkins taunt joe out of retirement?

Definitely not

If he could offer him bundles of cash he could tempt him

But taunt him - no. Calzaghe is too confident in himself to fall for that

There's been plenty of talk of Hopkins/Dawson, Hopkins poured cold water on the idea iirc.

I'd much rather see Dawson take on Hopkins than Tarver again. That rematch just doesn't make sense to me. If he should be rematching anyone, it should be Johnson as that fight was very close and in many peoples opinions controversial.

But a Hopkins fight would be a good one, and due to his speed, I think Dawson would handle him a fair bit easier than Calzaghe did.

Yeah, Dawson should fight Johnson.

Isn't there some word that Calzaghe will fight Johnson for his last fight? I'd like to see Calzaghe get a proper lhw belt for his final fight. the belts might be numerous, but they still count for something.

I havent heard that, but have had a feeling for a while now that Calzaghe would fight Johnson in his farewell fight.

The belts might mean something but Johnson doesn't have any of them...
