he reminds me of Kirkland too. Both have that intensity and determination that's rare these days. Interesting what you say about Dawson I'll have to pay attention next time I hear him talk. I've never been a fan of his for some reason, I just don't like his style and his lack of heart in the ring.
They don't give him props b/c they don't look at him as being a special fighter. He's a real throwback, gritty, hard hat type, reminds me of James Kirkland. People like HBO get caught up in the fighters with finesse like the Bradleys Alexanders but we saw what happened last night with Alexander. I was rooting for Devon but can't argue with anyone that says they think he lost. Had the fight been in Europe Kotelnik would have won. I hope down the line we get to see Cloud vs Pascal b/c that would be a real treat. Dawsons good now but he will end up like Meldrick Taylor the kid already sounds a little punchy/punch drunk
