iceman papa john (pizza place FYI lol) heres what you said in a interview. elabarate!! please
"BRC: What happened with you and Chad Dawson and why are you no longer training him?
ICE: Itís no secret and Iím going to put it in my book. We had trained together and everything was great and I was told by people that he was going to be tough to work with and this and that but in the time we worked together he did everything I told him to do. He tried everything I told him to do and executed it. We worked on his jab and body punches a lot and it makes me laugh now when people talk about it because he never did that before I started working with him and he admitted that in one interview. In any event I talked to him one day after the last fight I worked with him and said something like that straight left hand is working good and Chad said everything is working good. He then called me a couple of weeks later, and he just comes out with it and told me he signed with Gary Shaw and Iím thinking where does that leave me? Chad still wanted me to train him and I said okay, but Iíll train you at the gym where the manager you're in the process of leaving ,and who pays the rent is, but I donít think heís going to let you anymore. Chad lives forty minutes from me and I couldnít drop everything for him and leave my other fighters. He gave me one day to decide and the next day he was in Florida with Dan Birmingham and that was it."
