Dawson is a good fighter and if Calzaghe beats him his credentials increase. A win over a prime Dawson is better than his win over RJJ.
True, Dawson is a much better fighter. But mark my words, if Calzaghe wins, people will start questioning the age of Tarver and Johnson and say Dawson was overrated, he never beat a young, prime fighter.
I'd love to see Joe fight Dawson though. It would be a difficult fight and a great way to end his career.
