Weekend Wrap Up: No Bluffing This Time.

Wow, Hopkins-Dawson ended in a bizarre and questionable ending with Dawson throwing Bernard to the canvas and Bernard not being able to continue due to a shoulder injury. So referee Pat Russell awarded Dawson with a TKO victory.

Hopkins has cried, pissed, and moaned in so many fights before that the ref thought it was the same old shit. Hopkins can be a great actor displaying excellent drama but it appears his injury last Saturday night was real.

After the fight Hopkins was taken to the California Hospital Medical Center where he was diagnosed with a separation of the acromioclavicular (A-C) joint, which connects the collar bone and shoulder blade.

Golden Boy has filed a protest with the WBC and President Jose Sulliman expects a decision by the end of the week.

I think the ruling should be overturned by their review. It’s just hard to believe Hopkins antics but in this case it was real and a real disappointing ending to the fight. Let them fight again and let Dawson earn the title this time.
