I hated watching his fights. He had some great fights. However, the last 4 or 5 years of his career had him gun shy. It was either gunshy or he was too cerebral. He'd get in the ring and not want to throw punches. It was frustrating, watching him. Screaming at the screen for him to throw a freaking punch.

Was over Dawson after he fought a slew of older guys, then got outgunned by the likes of Pascal. After the "I hurt my shoulder" excuse in his corner, then his denial when Merchant asked about it after the fight, did it for me.

His degeneration at such a young age was unfortunate...But you could see the lack of drive, focus, and the disinterest--- He was tight defensively and offensively with Floyd Sr

He ruined himself with trying to cut down to fighting Ward. Not sure why he did it. Hope the money was worth it.

Nah man, he got 600k for the Ward fight, after just facing Hopkins months prior and settling for the lesser end of a 70/30 purse split. So yeah, maybe he took the fight because he wasn't sure he'd get another noteworthy payday....since then, he hasn't. Smh

Man after facing Hopkins he was the man at light heavyweight. Imagine if he didn't fight Ward but fought Stevenson instead.

That's definitely worth arguing. I watched Dawson/Stevenson a couple of days ago, and from the look in Dawson's eyes during the ref's instructions, he was already a beaten man.

 

Hell, he seemed irritated and somewhat disinterested during the kickoff press conference. Dude seemed to be wearing a lot (carrying unnecessary burdens) around that time. How do you think the Stevenson fight would've turned out, had he not faced Ward?
