maybe it will be a good thing maybe a bad thing, course he is fighting Bernard Hopkins so it might not matter at all. To me Dawsons biggest problem in this fight is the fact that he doesnt have the style to trouble Hopkins, he's got the skills but not the right style. He's likely not going to be the one pressing the pace, like Calzaghe did and even then Calzaghe barely won that fight and in some people's eyes the fight should have been a draw. He's likely not going to be the better counter puncher or mover. What he does have over Hopkins is youth and maybe a little more power, hand speed I think is about equal. I honestly see Hopkins getting a careful UD or maybe even knocking chad down and getting a stoppage late. Dawson to me needs to not let the genie out of the bottle and hurt Hopkins early to keep Hopkins from gaining momentum.
