No, his shoulder was actually swollen, you could see that a few minutes after the injury. Hopkins is an extremely experienced boxer and saying that he "knew he wasn't going to win" in round 2 is just absurd.

Now, maybe the injury wasn't as bad as he tried to make us think it was, but it still was an injury.

B-hop has been a legend in the sport and given his service for years and people question what happened? No he didn't fake it, it was medically proved his shoulder was dislocated. Dawson landed fuvk all in the those 2 rounds bhop schools him!

Anyone consider the possibility he was injured and couldn't continue. Injuries do happen, especially as they get older.

Dawson going to win easily. It won't be close at all. Dawson looked impressive and more importantly, much more confident in his rematches with the old guys before Hopkins (Tarver, Johnson).

hopkins avoided dawson for years. in the very limited time in the ring with him, he wasn't doing too good. i'm not gonna say he quit because he was scared but i do think he thought he could get a dq win and be done with dawson and it backfired. i think hopkins knows dawson is a VERY difficult matchup for him.

Yeah, I don't think Hopkins is thrilled to rematch Chad.

I explained the injury to a physical therapist who has no sort of bias, and she said he would've been able to finish, since it wasn't bad enough for surgery.

Really, if he didn't want the fight then why is the rematch going down? Surely he'd find a way to get out of it if that was the case. We all know Bhop is a slow starter and regardless of how Dawson looked in those two rounds, anything could have happened had this match stretched on.
