Moments ago at the California Commission meeting in Van Nuys, California, and seven CSAC commissioners voted on the Hopkins/Golden Boy appeal on the Bernard Hopkins vs Chad Dawson bout which was ruled as a TKO win for Dawson after Hopkins was thrown to the canvas and injured a shoulder causing the bout to be stopped. The Commission reversed the TKO win by Dawson and ruled the bout a No Decison.

"It was the fight nobody really gave a shit about. Two rivals: one an old established name on the world stage, the other an upstart, brash and brimming with confidence. It was the fight no-one wanted to see. Chad Dawson, Bernard Hopkins and the World Boxing Council were strangely proud to present...THE GREAT BORE."

 

 

Alas, as is so common these days, all things beget a sequel.

 

"They said it couldn't happen again. They said it was the bore to end them all. It was the fight no-one would remember; it was the farce nobody could forget. And now, it is happening again. Chad Dawson. Bernard Hopkins... WORLD BORE TWO.

LOL!!! Great Voice-over. Btw, the Pay-per-View did around 30 K Buys, which is just a horrible number......the bottomline is that neither Hopkins or Chad Dawson is a Draw, and together they make for lousy Box Office. Despite the controversy, I'm thinking a rematch is pretty low on HBO's priorities, maybe we'll get lucky and this fight will simply dry up and blow away.
