IMO, very far, Pascal is not as good as Bute, a win against Pascal will only prove that he can step in the ring with Bute. Bute will beat Dawson and people will forget about him. Very slim chance to be an ATG.

There is no one there to elevate him. He would have to toil for years like Hopkins did, taking whatever fights moving up or down he can to establish himself as an ATG.

Pretty damn far because it could all evaporate QUICK. Think about what Michael Nunn did from like 88-90 at Middle, the wins he had (some watchable, some not) and where he was regarded P4P. Enter James Toney, Nunn falls apart...historical footnote of a fighter when all is done.

Give these things some real time.

Make sure that your local fighter has a pair and be willing to take him on. Dawson has a better resume than Bute. Bute beat has beens and made a career of beating guys like Miranda(already beaten by pavlik, abraham), and Andrade(beaten by Kessler). The great BUte dodged the Super 6 like the plague. BTW, how slow was the count in that first andrade fight? Bute will stay in Montreal for those type of benefits.

Bute has power and is good to the body, Dawson is the complete fighter. Dawson 5 wins over Tarver, Johnson, and Adamek > BUte Career.

Dawson great defense, southpaw, wicked combinations, and throws from all angles. If Bute beats Dawson, hats off, until than please derail that hype train.

Pretty far but not really his fault. But I mean Roy Jones didn't have the best competition in the world either but he was flashy and made every fight exciting and took them out in dominate fashion where Dawson just really boxes to a decision which really does nothing for him.

He'd have to beat Hopkins, Cloud, and all the super 6 guys to even get within 50 feet IMO.

Hershman has stated multiple times that Bute wasn't invited. Not that it matters since your bashing agenda leaves you with no need for trivial things like facts.

The length of the count (which was atrocious) is irrelevant in the grand scheme because Bute was up by 7 so even if he didn't screw around with those warnings to Andrade Bute was already up.

P.S. you still think Dawson is such a complete fighter, particularly in regards to defense? and while his combinations and angles are good they're a non factor when he doesn't throw punches.

P.P.S. consider your Dawson hype train derailed.
