I think the real story here is that HBO signed Dawson to a two fight deal.

Can everyone say M-A-S-S-A-C-R-E? Dawson will get better while the old man's skills will continue to diminish. Sure, a young or almost young Tarver who had a late start to his career did great in rematches but he is is 40 and it just won't work this time.

Tarver's record in rematches has no baring on this fight. If Dawson doesn't stop him I'd be very surprised.

On a personal note, I hate Tarver and have thought he was always boring as shit. With the exception of knoking Roy's head off he has done nothing worthwhile in the ring. He talks his ass off and rarely backs him up.

Please Chad brutally knock this man out so we never have to see him again. Although knowing HBO, Tarver will lose then get 3 victories in a row against tomato cans and then get another shot ala Rahman.

I hope both guys are fighting for free in this rematch considering that the first fight only drew 900 people.

Yea Ben,

This fight might draw a huge 500!!! hahaha (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

It's a bullshit fight, we know that,

I read that CEO's at HBO said they will be doing less fights next year because of the economy and forced budget cuts. Therefore, they should reserve funds for the best possible fights, and this sure as hell isn't one of them!

Now that I know there was a forced rematch claus, maybe HBO was mandated to show this fight? I can't imagine anyone interested in seeing this match again!

Glen Johnson lashes out at Dawson vs Tarver rematch

Johnson hits the nail on the head. I know some of it will come off as frustration from Glen but I think he's absolutely right.

I hope he gets that title shot he's next up for and takes the title, so he has more to bring to the table in getting that rematch he so desperately wants with Dawson.

BTW how could a fight fan not love Glen Johnson?

TARVER>>!!>!?!?!? FUCK THAT SHTI!!!!!!! MANNY!!!!!!!!!!!!

MANNY!!!!!!!!MANNY!!!!!!!!!!MANNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mexi just is expressing his man love for Manny..Last night,Mexi would of let Pac-man take him from behind with no questions asked..

Dawson is scared of Glen now..Glen won their fight in my eyes and Dawson picked the guy who he dominated instead of the guy who gave him the best fight of his career..Tarver needs this win otherwise his "never lost a rematch" gimmick is GONE forever and he'll never be remembered for it..Lennox never lost a rematch offically but I think Holy beat him in their rematch..Lennox will always be remembered for it too..People will say he is undefeated because he avenged the loses..

I do think Dawson would hesitate to get back in with Glen..I really think Dawson wouldn't duck anyone but at first I thought he might of..I'm a big fan of all 3 of these guys..
