chad dawson, imo is in a must win situation here...this is what separates the men, from the boys...strategically though, he's in the driver's seat...imo, chad dawson is a good enough boxer, to box from the outside and pile up points…

[QUOTE=Tmann400;12051226]I'm still going with Bernard in this fight despite his age, his style is not going to allow Chad to get off nicely, if at all. Yea, Dawson's younger, more athletically gifted, he's a southpaw and he CAN win this…
