That comment pissed me off. They were referring to Dawson's potential fights with both Diaconu and Cloud. Both Diaconu (for the WBC) and Cloud (for the IBF) won their respective eliminators for a chance to fight Dawson for those belts. And HBO is saying that he did the fans a favor by not taking those fights and fighting Glen Johnson and Tarver twice? Considering that Diaconu beat Hoye in 07 and then instead of fighting Dawson he fights Chris Henry on 04/19/08 for the interim WBC while Dawson fights Glen Johnson on 4/12/08. Cloud beating Julio Cesar Gonzalez in an IBF eliminator for a chance to fight Dawson.... but having to fight Clinton Woods instead for the belt vacated by Dawson. And then... Diaconu beating Rico Hoye in a WBC eliminator for a chance to fight Dawson.... only to not get a chance at Dawson... so then Diaconu fighting Chris Henry (interim WBC) and then Pascal for the WBC that Dawson vacated. To say that Dawson did the fans a favor in not taking on the younger Cloud and Diaconu is obnoxious.
