I agree my man!!! I feel bad for Dawson, and I wish him the best. He really seemed lost for words in the post fight interview, but he did say Ward was way faster and way stronger then he thought he was.
But yea, Ward reminded of a combination of a PRIME B-hop defensively, and sort of reminded me of RJJ/Mayweather with the way he poured on his offense and controlled range. Ward is THE truth, and I seriously can't think of anyone who can give him a good challenge, and NOW he's shown he has legit power!! I just don't think any of us ever realized how hard of a puncher Ward is due to the fact Froch, Bika, Abraham etc. are VERY tough guys with good chins and are very hard to stop.
That, and combined with the fact that Ward has DRASTICALLY improved. You know, in an interview brother Nazim said that Ward has not shown yet what he has, and that people will be surprised when he starts cracking dudes and knocking em out.....He was right!
