Chad Dawson: Hopkins is Weak Physically and Mentally

At the post-fight press conference, Chad Dawson continued to rip Bernard Hopkins over Saturday's controversial main event at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Dawson (31-1, 18KOs) stopped Hopkins (52-6-2, 32KOs) in the second round to capture the WBC light heavyweight title. Hopkins, who rushed in to throw a punch, leaned over Dawson - who used his shoulder to push Hopkins off. The veteran fell and suffered a left shoulder injury. He was unable to continue and the referee ruled a TKO victory for Dawson.

"I knew he didn't want the fight," Dawson said. "He keeps talking about Philly and being a gangster. He's no gangster. Gangsters don't quit. He's weak. He's a weak physically- and mentally-minded person. He has no power."

Hopkins was furious after the fight, claiming Dawson tried to use "dirty tactics" to win.

"Chad Dawson came in the ring tonight, and he just wanted to rough me up with dirty tactics. He wanted to get me out of there, and that was the only way he was able to win," Hopkins.

Members of Dawson's team were quick to mention that Hopkins tried to foul in the very first round, as he rushed in head-first after throwing a punch.

Whether Hopkins quit or not, Dawson kinda brought this upon himself. There is a risk you will injure your opponent when you slam him to the ground. You just can't do this in the most important fight of your life. Dawson should have kept his cool and just gone about his business instead of ...

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza]I'm not going to continue with my joke because I find it vaugely sad you took my post seriously. It's a joke, man. A joke. You know, the whole Chad calling Hopkins (the self pro-claimed career killer and notorious for his mind games) mentally and physically weak? The art...
