    It's no Dawson, but it should be an interesting fight.

    A leap in competition for Henry, but Diaconu leaves himself open enough for a good boxer to exploit. But I don't think Henry's the guy to do it.
    But damn is he short for light heavy.

    Diaconu will run through him. Dawson needs to stop ducking "the shark"

    I agree. Henry is pretty damn skilled, whereas Diaconou isn't. He can punh for days though...so it should be good.

    They had a match set. But Diaconu backed out. I think he said it was because of a hand injury. But I wouldn't say Dawson is ducking him.

    Aside from getting dropped by Adamek late, Dawson was beating him convincingly.
    I don't see it being much different for Diaconu.
    And Dawson is significantly taller than Diaconu. I think Dawson takes this one convincingly as well.

    Dawson ducked him when he recovered from his injury and was ready to rip Dawson's head off.

    You've got to be kidding.

    Dawson had to get a replacement in Epifanio Mendoza and that fight occurred on 09/29/07.
    How often do you want Dawson to fight?
    Now he has a fight with Glen Johnson coming up.
    Diaconu let that chance slip by him, that's not Dawson's fault.

    Maybe Diaconu will get a shot at Dawson, but I don't think there will be any ripping of heads off. I'm pretty certain Dawson takes it. If the fight ever happens, let's make it interesting....

    yes, Diaconu will give Dawson no way out of this fight, and after seeing seeing Dawson against Johnson, it becomes that much more likely that Dawson is knocked into the tenth row. I dont think you want to put money on Dawson. I think you are definitely reconsidering. Dawson will look for any way out of a fight with "the shark".

    Diaconu doesn't have the guard that Johnson has. I think Dawson will pick his shots from a distance and batter Diaconu around the ring.

    Who says Diacanou is even going to make it past Henry? Has anyone seen him fight? Chris is a good fighter.

    he has heavier hands, and in the situation where he is in and finds Dawson's chin through his lacking severely defense, the shark takes him out where Johnson failed. nothing about Johnson's guard is rocket science. Adrian's guard is more than capable, he will have his homework done and Johnson gave some nice study material. Bute also provides about as perfect a sparring partner for Dawson as one could find, only Bute doesn't in a thousand years leave the defensive holes that Dawson does. Dawson will be a walk in the park compared to Bute. Montreal/Romanian/Canadian connection taking over.
