Ward. I think Ward is superior in nearly every way. Neither are hitters, but I'd say Dawson does have a bit of an edge there, and will have a height and reach advantage. I don't think the weight class will play much of a role in the fight though, contrary to what many think. There's a reason Dawson always maintained he would be willing to go back down-he knows he can. I hope I'm right/Dawson's right, because I'd hate to have it be a waste of two top-notchers mixing it up with each other.

The thing is, I can see Ward competing with Dawson if Dawson manages to make it his fight-an outside affair. But, I can't see Dawson doing that well if Ward makes it his fight-an inside, mauling affair, where Ward again proves that while he's not a hitter, he's really quite physically powerful, even if you wouldn't think so to look at him.

I don't know what Ward's weigh-in weight is, but I always try to look at what they actually can weigh, when judging any perceived advantages, and I never got the deal with Dawson being so big. I don't know what people think standard super middles weigh, compared to light heavies, but Dawson and Diaconu, with no catchweight, at light heavy, weighed 187 and 186, respectively, on fight-night. While for their second super middleweight encounter, Bute and Andrade came in on fight-night weighing in at 182 and 185. This is not going to be Walker VS Sharkey, here.

I'm hoping for an accidental head butt. I've got money on the under.

Love Lightnin' Hopkins. Someone yesterday here had Fred McDowell as their avatar, and was pleased to see someone else knew who he was.

Pat Barrett - Amir Khan would have been a very interesting fight.

Ward has become the new Bernard Hopkins.

A tough and awkward style, has dominated every opponent these past two years, and might be the most intelligent fighter in boxing today. Good chin and stamina too.

Great, great fighter.

Right behind Roy in the all time 168 pound rankings I reckon.

Who can he fight now?

Pascal? Froch rematch? I see no one right now who can really
challenge this kid.

I would honestly like to see a rematch against Dawson, considering Froch is fighting Bute in March (I think). Would be interesting to see Dawson throwing more than 10 punches per round and trying to actually land them.
