Geez...where have you num nutts been? Anybody been keeping up with the fight schedule, besides me? Shit...you'd thought the fight was cancelled by the looks of nobody bringing it up or at least bumping an old thread.

Anyway, it's fight week and as we all know, Chad and Bernard have unfinished business. It sucked ass the way the first fight ended, and shame that we had to wait this long to see if Bernard will ride off into the sunset, or if Dawson will stand there and stare at his opponent until crunch time comes.

Last minute predictions anyone? Sense a KO? TKO? Another bullshit ending?

I dont know if its the promotion, outcome of the first fight, or maybe a little of both but no one is talking about this fight. They even had to resort to the "we're selling extra tickets" ploy to get butts in those seats. I predict Hopkins by UD, and due to the lack of demand this may be the last time Hopkins fights in the States.

Still think Hopkins loses. He looked tense the last time out and I think Dawson has some of the good kind of "bad" left in the tank. And ya never know how Hopkins will look coming back from injury at this age especially in a fight he didn't seem very motivated to be in

Dawson by clear UD and maybe even a late round stoppage. No disrespect to Hopkins but as long as Dawson uses his obvious boxing talent, fights intelligently (keeps Hopkins off of him with the jab and whenever the chance is there, go to the body) and as said already with 'Bad' intentions I really do think that it'll be a wrap.

Sadly, I have had enough of Bernie. It's time for him to leave the sport imo. However, I am not counting him out just yet.

I think it will be a good fight, similar to the Pascal fight BUT with Chad on the wining side. By close UD or SD. It all depends on Chad's badness....

Dawson wins the fight easy, but the scorecards will prolly be tight.

Hopkins is a crafty veteran, and Im sure he found out everything he needed to know in the first fight (just from 2 rounds of action). Im not sure Dawson learned anything from the first fight, other than the fact that he felt Bernard didn't want to fight.

The reason this rematch will be interesting is because Dawson may try to seize the moment in an aggressive manner, and try to jump on Bernard too early (and recklessly). With that in mind, Hopkins may capitalize on those possible mistakes that Chad would make out of aggression.

i love watching hopkins fight and want him to win it, but the odds really seem stacked against him in this one, I think physically he's just out done, and although marquez showed us that timing counters speed in the third pac fight, I don't understand why people want him to retire, it's not like he's taken devastating losses like RJJ, maybe it's because his style is boring? I prefer watching him pick people apart. i think he can win a close fight even if "not so bad" chad shows up with his A game.

Dawson with the stoppage! I believe it's the beginning of the end for Bernard.
