    Arrow Hopkins vs. Chad Dawson II - Saturday night fight thread

    This card on HBO starts tonight @ 10:15 PM ET, I don't know why they have it on so fuggin' late. 'Spoon Jr. vs Mitchell up 1st.


    April 28
    At Atlantic City, N.J. (HBO): Bernard Hopkins vs. Chad Dawson, rematch, 12 rounds, for Hopkins' Ring/WBC light heavyweight title; Seth Mitchell vs. Chazz Witherspoon, 12 rounds, heavyweights.

    I think this is Hopkins retirement fight. Dawson will beat him up as never seen before and Hopkins finally gets the message that his time has been and gone.

    That's probably the way that it SHOULD go, but I have a feeling this one stinks again. Hopkins will do anything on earth not to lose these days, and Dawson is flat out lazy half the time. It's a really nasty combination imo, Hopkins may want to spoil more than Chad wants to fight. I see a crap fight with Hopkins losing the real exchanges but mauling all day without being warned(hope not) and Dawson more or less letting him and then losing his focus and getting stupid again. Wouldn't be AT ALL surprised to see this one end in some pathetic DQ again for either man. Who is the referee?

    I'm torn over the prediction on this fight. Part of me sees it exactly as you do; the other part of me thinks that you can never count Hopkins out.

    I'm strangely interested in this fight

    Could be a dud but I have a feeling the rematch will be better than we expect.

    Prediction: Dawson on points

    They will be desperate to give the decision to Dawson like they were with Taylor vs Hopkins to try and make the younger guy the next star but Dawson wont look good in this fight.

    The first fight didnt tell us much but it did show that Hopkins could make a fresh Dawson miss alot. He didnt really capitalize but the longer it went the more I think he would have made him pay had the injury not occured. Hopkins will fiddle his way through the first 6 then takes over IMO. He knows too many tricks and I wasnt impressed with Dawson in the Johnson or Pascal fights. I think Bernard has the better success in a long and ugly fight, teaching the younger stronger man a boxing lesson but the decision will go to Dawson

    I'll be watching. I think Dawson wins but Hopkins gets the decision.

    I am not staying up for this fight but hope Hopkins wins but expect Dawson to win a decision as he is fired up for this fight.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Fuck it, I'm going with Dawson by stoppage. Think Hopkins will be pulled outta this mismatch... I think he won't get going and will only get worse :/

    As much as i'd love to see Dawson simply destroy the old man, Hop has never come close to being knocked out in a fight, and maybe only knocked down once or twice, not sure. So a stoppage isn't likely.

    Word for word.... EXACTLY what I think. Seen too many Hopkins stinkers to know that this is all too true. I'd love to be proven wrong, but chances are I won't be.

    I cannot get away from seeing Hopkins turn back the clock...again. I've seen no indication in Dawson that he is ready or willing to 'seek & destroy' and if he settles and plays chess with Hopkins I think he'll lose by a few. Im looking forward to this one and don't think it will be a lemon. Hopkins via dec.

    Early fan demand...Smoger as ref!
