Agreed. I think both of Hopkins' performances are quite a bit better. The Tito one for his dominance in every aspect followed with one of the most perfectly set up traps I've seen in modern boxing for the KO. It was a thing of true boxing beauty.

The Pavlik one was also amazing because he'd just come off the Calzone loss and everyone thought he was going to be knocked out for the first time ever and get beaten up. Instead he put on an epic clinic and looked 30 again. It was beautiful. Ward hasn't reached that level yet.

We have to remember that both Tito and Pavlik were undefeated and significant favourites. Dawson and Froch had both lost not long before and both were underdogs.
