But still, the announcers had nothing to do with Ward beating Dawson's ass. It was a great win and performance by Ward, I was shocked that Ward stopped him. Obviously it would have been greater had Ward gone up in weight or if they'd fought a non-title CW fight or something. Still, a great win for Ward. I wouldn't rule out a rematch at 175 in the next few years, if Dawson stays on top there.
Dawson should fight either Cloud or Pascal next.
he won't it's open season on him now. His confidence is gone and Pascal already beat him anyway everyone else he fought was a geriatric.
