However, since this fight things have changed dramatically. Dawson has improved massively and has announced himself as the No.1 guy at light-heavyweight, whereas Pascal has been very inactive and in the one fight he did have he lost to 45-year old Bernard Hopkins. It is a rematch that has been discussed for a very long time and a big pay day for both men if it happens.
It would be a wise move for "Bad Chad" who is coming off of a devastating knockout defeat to pound-for-pound contender Andre Ward. Fortunately Dawson was able to keep his light-heavyweight title as the fight took place at super-middleweight, meaning he can continue his reign as the light-heavy king if he can back to top condition.
