Anything can happen, but I don't think we saw any cracks in the ship in Pascal 2. I think those jumps Hopkins does are very calculated. He's in rhthym and timing his opponent when he puts himself out there. It's not like he's loading up or trying desperately to reach his opponent.
It's him seeing his man out of position or excessive vulnerability when he opens himself up like that. I personally doubt he'd jump in on Dawson if he was in position to or even near position to sit down on a counter uppercut or hook.
Hopkins generally follows his attacks by tying up or getting the hell out. Hurting Hopkins is possible b/c I think Dawson is secretly a very good puncher. However, I think if Dawsons sits down on his punches, Hopkins will pick him apart very quickly.
