but, it's an ali v holmes / marciano v louis situation tonight methinks...can't expect anything from him at this age, and dawson is proper good.
i don't want to see him humiliated and beat up bad.
hope the old man comes out safe.
I don't think Dawson will be aggressive enough to really hurt Hopkins too much, but I do expect him to win. Which is a shame, because he is a massive coont.

Dawson can never maintain his offence. He's never managed it in a single fight and, even worse, he's never stopped a world level opponent. He's just not that good. The ONLY thing that wins him this fight is if Hopkins has gotten (even) old(er) overnight.

So Hopkins is getting beaten by a retarded fighter tonight..? A one demensional fighter, who cannot maintain any offence, is mentally weak, and has no real punching power....?

Like you have just said, its ok because Bernard Hopkins is old.

So stop worrying about it.

I am sure Andre Ward can beat Chad Dawson......

Yeh right.

If Chad Dawson is such a retard, why don't people suggest him as a oponent for Nathan Cleverly or Tony Bellew...?

Seriously people need to get a grip and stop getting all emotional and bitter. Bernard Hopkins has had a great career, and he is getting beat by the best light heavyweight on the planet tonight.

Its that simple..

Nah mate, I think 95% scored it to Dawson - I had it a draw giving everything possible (and more) to Hopkins.

I wouldn't waste your time with it, awful fight.

Cheers Bryn, I remember the first fight sitting there after the Clev-Bellew fight and thinking 'why am i staying up for this?..' then went to bed and was thankful and looks like i did right thing again .

Glad Chad won though, won me fair few points i went for a SD in prediction league cos i knew a judge would have it close.

"Hopkins for me looked like the better fighter, he looked the better condition of the two fighters, and was clearly technically the better fighter. He could of won the fight if he let his hands go more, Chad Dawson looked unfit and fatigued, his legs where like jelly he looked really skinny aswell compared to last fight......but he did more work, and let his hands go more. His jab, and share size coupled with his basic know how to spin off some of Hopkins attacks won him the fight.........but for me Hopkins could of won the fight, if he just lauched more offensive attacks"......

Hopkins' ugly, dirty style will hinder his legacy if he fights on.

He's a derty get.
