Default Anyone else get a nervous feeling thinking Dawson was about to get robbed?

After the first scorecard was read? I got a deja-vu of Rios/Abril. I got real nervous for Dawson and was very relieved when the other judges had common sense.

I hate that 25 years from now people will pull the "Hopkins still got the bad end of a MD" rather than watching the fight and seeing it for the 10-2 or 9-3 Dawson performance that it was.

I honestly never felt he was getting robbed. I just thought the judge was blind as a bat. I know that the recent string of highway robberies should have told me otherwise, but frankly, bhop has never been the beneficiary of bad judging.

just to now a few all got gifts in there recent fights. hopkins loss the fight 8rds to 4rds in my scorecard. but he could have got the gift to me, hopkins never gets a gift to me but they will rob him. he should only have his 1st career loss and rjj loss and chad fight.he was robbed in the 2 taylor fights and joe cal.

I dont know. good question. I do know that it reinforces his "me against the world" metality, and general hatred of the system in boxing, let alone the greater american system.

You can't gift someone that throws combination headbutts mid-fight and doesn't get warnings for them. That was his "gift" right there.

i sure did...only gave Hopkins 2 rounds, that 11th round was a gift at best he didint do anything....Never seen a guy get dominated like that in a long time and just lose a MD..judges suck...funny thing is the HBO commentators knew who would have the **** card

I was actually expecting a split decision.That first card was no surprise.
And I'd say I was more hopeful than nervous.
