Ranking The Best Fighters In The World
Light Heavyweight 29 1 (17)
Last Year s Ranking: 16
Status Report: It must have been fun being Dawson when he finally gave in to the media s insistence that he fight Glen Johnson again and promptly beat him clearly and without controversy (W 12). We imagine it was less fun when Jean Pascal upset him in Montreal to receive recognition as the world light heavyweight champ ( L Tech Dec 11). But that s just a guess.
Future: A rematch with Pascal, apparently. And if he wins that one? We ll put it this way: Ali Frazier these two are not.
