Great fight tonight. I'll take Ward. Dawson is coming down in weight, he should be weaker. He's also fighting in Oakland which is Ward's hometown. This is fight between two defensive specialist who lack power, so it's likely to go the distance. A close decision favors Ward. Dawson is often not active enough.
A win by Ward can put him at the top of the P4P rankings. He'll be motivated. He's an underappreciated fighter. Dawson has the size, but I don't think it will factor much. Ward can fight inside and out and he is much faster.
Ward UD 12

for the sake of an argument, since the fight's over, i just wanted to go over some things.
A win by Ward can put him at the top of the P4P rankings.
Mayweather and Pacquaio fight over that #1 spot on a regular, and they're not budging. Ward had a very impressive win tonight, and he'll shoot up the rankings, but he won't "top" them. #
S.O.G 4 life!

Ward won. Forfeit.
On a side note, you've had almost 3,000 throwdowns? I hope somebody is paying you to do this.

No, nobodies paying me to do this.
I have been on here for 5 years. I'm a sports geek, shoot me!
I stand by my words, Andre Ward will not "top" the p4p rankings. That spots up for Manny or Floyd, nobody else.

Actually Ring Magazine has the top spot vacant and Ward is now #3. But that's hogwash, he's clearly the best fighter in the world.
However that's not what the TD is about. I picked Ward. Ward won. Why are you not forfeiting?
