Trainer Freddie Roach recently gave his opinion on the upcoming light heavyweight battle between WBC champion Bernard Hopkins and mandatory contender Chad Dawson. The fight will happen on October 15th at Staples Center in Los Angeles. If Dawson can stay mentally focused and use his boxing skills, Roach believes the younger fighter has a good chance to upset the 46-year-old veteran.

"Chad Dawson is good boxer, Bernard is a craft guy. Dawson can he stay focused? We don't know. If he can, he could win. But if he can't, Bernard will eat him up," Roach said told OnTheGrind Boxing.

In the case of the upcoming welterweight fight between WBC champion Victor Ortiz and five division beltholder Floyd Mayweather Jr., Roach holds Mayweather as the obvious favorite to win, but gives Ortiz a shot to secure an upset with his strength and power.

"You have to favor Mayweather. Victor is a strong guy. You have to favor Mayweather, but Victor has a chance," Roach said.

Dawson got this one. The key in beating Hopkins is to out box him. I expect Dawson to fight like the bigger man, by not giving up any of his physical advantages of height and reach, keeping the action at a distance, while circling in the center of the ring and keeping B-Hops at the end of his lon...

I don't think Chad knows the meaning of foot on the gas but, if he does. Its him. Just be careful of BHops straight right/sneaky hard left hook or the head butts!!!

Dawson should be able to put a beat-down on BHop at this point -- as long as he doesn't come in scared and tentative -- he should go at BHop from round 1, be the aggressor and rarely let up -- Dawson has it in him to do this but has to come in with the right mindset -- not give Bhop too much respect

dawson better be in great shape for this one...personally i'm not too crazy about steward working with him (preferred mayweather sr) but if he uses his boxing skills and be ready to go to war, he should give hopkins a run for his money...
