Dream Fight: Dwight Muhammad Qawi vs. Chad Dawson (Light Heavyweight Fight)
The Fight would be a twelve round fight with referee Arthur Mercante Sr .
Right from the start of round one Qawi would come out pushing forward in the peekaboo bob style looking to get in on Dawson in order to get to work on the body of “Bad Chad” . Dawson is attempting to keep Qawi at bay and utilizing his long reach. Nothing much happens although Qwai is pressing the action.
Rounds 2, 3, and 4 are similar it appears that Qawi is finding his rhythm and is getting inside and going to work on Dawson’s body, for some reason Dawson appears willing to fight on the inside with Qawi which could prove to be a tactical error.
In between rounds 4 and 5 Dawson’s corner is imploring their fighter not to fight Qawi’s fight but rather to keep it on the outside. Dawson starts round 5 with that very intention but the pace and pressure Qawi is setting is forcing Dawson to fight Qawi’s fight.
Round 6 Dawson has his best round of the fight in the first half of the round and lands a great left hook right hand combination that Qawi just walks thru. Unfortunately for Dawson at Light heavyweight Qawi possessed a tremendous chin having fought greats like Michael Spinks, Matthew Saad Muhammad Evander Holyfield. But by the end of the round “the Camden Buzz saw” has again closed the distance and continues to set a great pace.
Rounds 7- 9 a lot of in fighting and holding going on. Dawson is trying to tie up Qawi on the inside to get a breather. Qawi throws a wild left hook that if landed would have closed the show. Dawson makes him pay with a sharp two punch combination.
In between Round 9 and 10 Dawson’s corner is telling him he needs to step in up and needs a knockout or at least some knock downs if he has any hopes of winning this fight. Dawson comes out and takes control of the center of the ring and as Qawi closes the gap Dawson starts firing with “Bad Intentions” Qawi is firing back but Dawson seems to be getting the better of the exchanges he appears a step quicker. Within the last minute of the round Chad has appeared to have punched himself out and Qawi is still firing shots to the body with the occasional hook to the head. Dawson is on the ropes more as a result of fatigue then being hurt.
In between rounds10 and 11 Qawi ‘s corner is telling their fighter he has taken Dawson out into the deep water now it’s time to drowned him. Dawson again comes out looking to mix it up and once again Qawi obliges. The two go toe to toe in the center of the ring, this time a thunderous left hook by Qawi forces Dawson to the ropes where he is trying to get his second wind while using head movement to by time. Unfortunately for Bad Chad Qawi who has his man against the ropes is relentless to the body Dawson is trying to fire back but is leaving himself open to the big shots from Qawi.
Mercante is watching Dawson closely. Dawson is trying to hold on but a four punch combination to the body forces Dawson to take a knee. Mercante begins the count, Dawson rises at 7 looks unsteady on his feet. Qawi roars forward and again traps his man on the ropes, Qawi is mixing up his shots now to the body and to the head Dawson is covering up and not firing back. Mercante jumps in and rescues Dawson from any further damage . Your winner by TKO in the 11th “The Camden Buzz-saw” Dwight Muhammad Qawi !
