Should the Dawson fight have any bearance on what Hopkins has been able to accomplish through out his career in boxing?
Nope. sorry. Hopkins knew he was gonna take a loss and faked an injury but it spiraled out of control. His legacy is tarnished until he rematches Dawson and beats him in a convincing fashion. imagine if he just goes on w/o fighting Dawson. he could never be on the level of a hagler...have u ever seen or could u even imagine hagler doing what hopkins does (cheating, rough tactics, rolling on ground, whining)....enough said...not an all time great
