eddie cotton referee most known for lewis/tyson, generally allows clinching and in-fighting.
judges steve weisfeld, luis rivera, person flaherty. weisfeld could possibly favor b-hop in a close fight.
imo, -410 is a bad line and if the hopkins that fought pascal still exists b-hop has an excellent chance here as chad is susceptible to the right hand and was on person street against johnson in the 10th round. held pascal's leg in the eight after being hurt.
i think the possibility of dawson stopping hopkins(by tko/ko/dq/injury) is slim unless hopkins gets old overnight which i feel is also slim.
