I like the odds for Tarver. I learned quite a bit about Dawson in his fight with Glen Johnson. I think Tarver takes it. He'll be a month shy of his 40th birthday, but he's a really young 40.

Man I can get rich with this one too. I think that this fight will be closer than everyone expects. Tarver could pull out a SD or a really close UD. I just hope Dawson doesn't win another robbery in this one.

Tarver has good odds, and I think the fight is closer than the odds lead you to believe. I hate Tarver, so I hope Dawson wins, and I think he will. Probably by a close decision.

i think dawson wins this one, the only reason he had problems with johnson was because of johnsons workrate and constant applied pressure, whereas tarver will sit back and let dawson lead, i think dawson wins a convincing UD, even though i had Johnson winning 7-5 against dawson in his last fight.

its worth putting a bit of money on tarver though the odds look good. and dawson is a little overrated to be fair.

Dawson is very active when he fights guys who he doesn't think can hurt him. I just see him overwhelming Tarver in this fight and taking a relatively wide UD around 8-4.

Johnson hurt Dawson bad on three or four occasions and I believe Tarver can and will do the same. Dawson is an excellent body puncher, but I believe a great deal of that will be neutralized by Tarver's superior defense. One big shot from Tarver can change everything with Dawson's suspect chin. Mason "The Line" Dixon all the way. I'm ultra-excited about this one.

Great post. I 100% agree.

Could well be 8-4 or 7-5 IMO.

I'm putting money on my boy Tarver. Was rooting for Dawson, but I've come to like Tarver a lot more these past few weeks.
