Had he got the nod against Taylor and was still champ that Tarver fight would have been a super fight no doubt, but Taylor winning made it come up inches short.
The only way he gets his wish though is if he beats Puret, Froch, avenges Dawson loss, and then fights Ward. Thats really the only way I see it happening. I mean if Dawson loses again its still possible he doesn't need that rematch but he can't be in a super fight as a light heavyweight with Dawson still around at the top.
Dawson doesn't even really want to fight him again. Thats a big obstacle itself never the less getting a fight with Ward to happen when Hopkins himself refuses, so he better hope somebody lands a lucky punch on Ward and Froch takes over or its not happening. Huge B-Hop fan but a super fight I just cant see happening.
