Dawson gave 3 options to Ward

At the post hopkins fight interview Dawson gave Ward 3 options,He`ll could meet Ward at a catchweight,Ward can come to 175 or Dawson can go to 168.Dawson did`nt just say i`ll meet Ward at 168.

It is ALSO Dawson’s OWN fault that the ODDS are stacked against him!! He CALLED out Ward, SAYING he would fight him at 168lbs…a BIG mistake, then LATER tried to get Ward to fight him at a catchweight…too LATE, Ward REFUSED. IF he was SO confident about the dropping to 168lb WHY would he later attempt to get Ward to agree to fight him at a catchweight after already saying he would fight Ward at 168lbs? Also, he could’ve demanded that the fight be held in Las Vegas, but he’d already conceded to everything. It WILL BE Ward’s tenacious style that BEATS Dawson ultimately but losing that WEIGHT won’t HELP him.

The WEIGHT will AFFECT Dawson as the fight moves forward his energy will be SAPPED by the 7th or 8th round!! Dawson LOST his firrst fight with Glen Johnson but was given a gift, lost to Jean Pascal clearly, beat Hopkins but not dominantly!

Judah isn’t that fantasic anymore at 140 OR 147… He was beaten down by Tszyu, Baldomir, Mayweather, Cotto, Clottey, and Matthysse before he ever got to Khan.. Khan put a whipping on what was left of Judah and the weight was not the decider.. The weight will not be the decider in Ward-Dawson.. Ward’s more versatile style of fighting inside, outside, boxing and brawling, plus a biased crowd and stiff necked officials, will probably give him a significant edge.

The only issue is Dawsons weight. He’s the better boxer and a true champ 4 taking this fight In Wards home town at Wards weight. I keep hearing Dawson can’t fight inside, ha ha that’s funny hearing that the smaller guy who isn’t as strong is going 2 rough up Dawson inside. And when did Ward grow in height? He’s not another Pacquio is he who grows an inch every fight

The WEIGHT LOSS WILL affect Dawson!! He hasn’t fought there for 6 years. When Zab Judah went back down to 140lbs from 147lbs after 6 years he wasn’t SHARP, as a matter of FACT he struggled with Matthysee and LOST to KHAN.

BHop wasn’t able to rough up Dawson on the inside, so it should not be a given that Ward will. This fight will come down to focus and wether Dawson will be too drained to have high energy for 12 rounds. I’m actually thinking he will, so I pick Dawson by decision.

I’m so looking forward to this fight. But my feeling is that Dawson will with this by UD he looks really focused for this just like when he beat Adamek

Dawson did handle a scumbag like Hopkins. Dawson should be able to handle Ward.

what is Andre Ward’s walk around weight? don’t be shocked if he beats Chad Dawson at both 168 and 175 because I am sure he walks around at 180 and can still so some damage at 175
