Sad that we don't have a boxing thread already.
Well, one nice thing about ponying up for HBO is getting to watch some fights again. Watched the probable end of Bernard Hopkins' career tonight.
Chad Dawson clearly won most rounds. Hopkins struggled to mount any offense. Yet, it was impressive how little damage Dawson was able to do to a 47-year-old Hopkins. Dawson connected on nearly 50% of his power punches and Hopkins hardly had a scratch. Hopkins' defense was something to watch, even at this stage in his career. Even when connecting, at no point in the fight did it appear there was any threat of Dawson doing any actual damage to Hopkins.
