He doesn't look anywhere near that big.

He will be a walking skelton, and ward know this. Which is why he is fighting him at the weight. Same reason he does not want to leave California to fight.

He'll be weight drained and lose, he's never even fought at 168 in 6 years...it's nothing happening. They should fight at 171 or 172

It's gonna be a huge mistake if he fights Ward at 168. I've said this before. The fight should be made at 173.

To be fair Dawson did call him out, and he said he was willing to fight at 168.

The 'drained' excuse is probably the most popular excuse used to tarnish a win, and Ward has already validated that before he's even signed the contract. I'm gutted he never took that Bute fight.
Froch showed us why Bute wasn't worthy of being in the same ring with Ward or at least not yet. Dawson has beaten Tarver, Hopkins, Adamek. These guys are solid fighters. Whom has Bute beaten? Ward made the right decision. If Bute can earn his way up to elite level then maybe we'll see him fight Ward at some point. But he's gonna have to beat some good names which include Froch, Kessler, Dirrell, etc.

It's ridiculous, especially since Ward is going to lhw anyway, but since Dawson is so good he will drain him.

Dawson obviously has no options at Light heavy and is clearly desperate for big money fights as all fighters are. His only hope is to move down, no one would want to move up to a dead division just for Dawson.

Last time I checked, Dawson asked for this fight, Ward never called him out. Why would Ward move up to a dead division when Dawson is the desperate one?

Idiot.

He'll just rehydrate after the weigh-in like everyone else, pretty simple. If he loses the weight correctly he won't be drained an come fight night he'll have a big ass weight advantage.

People always twist shit and try and put blame on the fighter they don't like even when it's not even close to being warranted. Shit gets old pretty ****in quick.
