title Will Hopkins Fight Dawson?

By William Mackay: Well, we now know that IBF light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson didn’t put in one of his better performances against Antonio Tarver last Saturday night, beating him by a 12-round unanimous decision that left a lot of people wondering about Dawson. With the fight well in hand after six rounds, Dawson had a number of lapses of concentration in the final six rounds, taking shots and not entirely dealing well with the little bit of pressure that Tarver was putting on Dawson.

title Dawson Should Get the Same Treatment as Calzaghe

By Adam Fillingham: These are all top 10 fighters that aren’t from the US. They are all good fighters. Some are great, but will ‘bad’ Chad Dawson fight any of these? Don’t count on it. Read the rest of this entry »

title Does Dawson Lack the Killer Instinct?

dawson4234534By Jason Kim: IBF light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson did enough to get another win over Antonio Tarver on Saturday night, but in beating Tarver by a 12-round unanimous decision, Dawson seemed to show the hallmarks of a fighter that lacks the killer instinct to seek out and destroy his aged opponent.

title Warren: “He [Hatton] Shouldn’t Have Taken the Fight” – News

By Eric Thomas: In an article in The Sun, promoter Frank Warren says that Ricky Hatton made a big mistake of choosing to fight Filipino star Manny Pacquiao, saying that Hatton was “always likely to lose.” Warren points out that Hatton went out and signed up Floyd Mayweather Sr., but the relationship didn’t work out and the two ended up not on speaking terms by the end of the training camp for the Pacquiao fight.

title Dawson Beats Tarver: The Fight Wasn’t Close

By Chris Williams: International Boxing Federation light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson (28-0, 17 KOs) defeated Antonio Tarver (26-6, 19 KOs) by a 12-round unanimous decision on Saturday night, beating the 40-year-old Tarver about as bad as he did last time out. Tarver tried to make a fight of it this time, coming at Dawson, firing off a lot of punches, but the fight looked mostly like the first fight last year in October, which concluded with Dawson winning by a lopsided 12-round decision.

title Dawson Would Have Beaten Calzaghe

dawson34254By Scott Gilfoid: Having seen the IBF title fight last Saturday night between champion Chad Dawson and challenger Antonio Tarver, I think Dawson would have beaten former WBO super middleweight Joe Calzaghe had it been him in the ring instead of 40-year-old Tarver. Dawson looked good for the most part, showing fast hand speed, good power and excellent defense. Dawson controlled almost the entire 12-round fight with Tarver and only had a problem when Dawson eased off the throttle in the last two rounds. Read the rest of this entry »

title Can Hatton Be Salvaged?

By Manuel Perez: Ricky Hatton was once the best fighter in the light welterweight division and considered to be one of the top fighters in all boxing. It’s hard to say that now after Hatton was torn apart by Manny Pacquiao last week, dropped three times and knocked completely out. Some people are predicting that Hatton may retire from boxing after fighting one last time in Manchester. Read the rest of this entry »

title Dawson vs. Tarver III: Would There Be Any Fan Interest In This Bout?

tarver34452By Dave Lahr: Okay, so what if Antonio Tarver has failed two times to beat Chad Dawson. Boxing fans might like to see if Tarver can win on the third try, don’t you think? After all, Tarver stormed out of the ring on Saturday night after the judges’ scores were announced giving IBF light heavyweight champion Dawson a 12-round unanimous decision by the scores of 116-112, 117-111 and 117-111.

title Why Does Pacquiao Fight So Many Old and Shot Fighters?

By Manuel Perez: I don’t know what it is with Manny Pacquiao, but it seems like he’s been a beacon for old and shot fighters in the past few years and I wonder why Pacquiao seems to be selecting a lot of those types. Pacquiao started with Erik Morales, who was totally shot by the time that Pacquiao fought him for a third time. Pacquiao then went and fought a 2nd fight with Marco Antonio Barrera in 2007. Why would Pacquiao need to fight Barrera again when Pacquiao had already beaten him by an 11th round TKO in 2003? Read the rest of this entry »
