Default Froch v Dawson who wins?

Who wins this? It could take place at super middleweight or light heavyweight but to make it fair it can take place at a catchweight of 172 pounds.

Hard to say. In theory Dawson could keep it long all night, out speed and out move Froch to take a decision. But carl's unpredictable rhythm and pressure could lead to a late stoppage or a close points win.

At the SM Froch stops him. Dawson is severely weight-drained and can't fight at this weight, we saw this against Ward.

At LW I'm not sure. Dawson could probably box to a decision but Froch getting the stoppage is still a genuine possibility.

A catch-weight would depend on how well Dawson can handle it.

Would be an interesting fight but we'll never see it.

As soon as Froch has Dawson hurt, it's game over. Froch TKO within 8 rounds at SMW or LHW

At 175 Dawson would school him
At 168 Froch stops him
At 172 could be a 50/50 fight but mainly because we don't know how Dawson will look at that weight

Froch wins regardless of weight. TKO in the late rounds.

Froch shouldn't win, the way Baldomir shouldn't beat Judah, but he probably would.

Froch would beat the shit out of Dawson, who is the most overrated fighter of the past 10 years. The only truly impressive win I see on Chads record is when he took Adamek's 0. Pascal put a beating on him until his shit stamina caught up with him and allowed Dawson to take some of the later rounds, and even then it was still a clear victory for Jean. Froch would stalk Dawson and eventually Bad Chad would fold like a deckchair.
