Schaefer, Shaw Agree: No Hopkins-Dawson Rematch

By Chris LaBate

If there is one thing that both sides agree on from Saturday night, there is no interest in a rematch between Bernard Hopkins and Chad Dawson. At Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Chad Dawson (31-1, 18KOs) stopped Bernard Hopkins (52-6-2, 32KOs) in the second round to capture the WBC light heavyweight title. Hopkins suffered a left shoulder injury after being pushed off from a clinch, which sent him down near the ropes.

Because Dawson used his shoulder and not his hands to push Hopkins off, the referee said there was 'no foul' on the part of Dawson.

Richard Schaefer, CEO for Golden Boy Promotions, who handle the career of Hopkins, will be filing a protest. He wants to overturn the decision but has no interest in making a rematch.

"There was no interest by any radio or TV outlet in talking to Dawson. He doesn't add anything to the promotion," Schaefer said.

Even if the WBC orders a rematch, Dawson and his promoter, Gary Shaw will go in another direction - "We've given up belts before," Shaw said.

It was a serious let down of a fight, I for one was looking forward to it. The way I see it, Hopkins was fouling Dawson and Dawson was basically getting him off his back. We’ve seen this happen countless…

[QUOTE=jrrod02;11302685]Maybe its just me, but I see Dawson actually holding Hopkins legs trying in what looked like an attempt to bring him down. Did not seem like a simple shoulder shove to me. Maybe that's just me. Here is the…
