Waterworld II? Bernard Hopkins vs Chad Dawson II
By Steve Kim, MaxBoxing (Jan 26, 2012) Doghouse Boxing
Various sites and Twitter accounts are stating that a rematch between WBC lt. heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins and Chad Dawson is a go for April 28th in Atlantic City on HBO. OK, well, it is what it is. No official announcement has been made by the network or any venue. But you wonder, while this rematch was mandated by the WBC, is there any public demand for it? The pay-per-view telecast in October did less than 50,000 buys and struggled mightily at the box-office at the Staples Center in Los Angeles (where it never belonged).

You hope that there is a strong co-feature attached to it and that HBO( which has a contractual obligation with Hopkins) doesn’t spend too much on this bout( ironically last years hook-up between the two ended up on HBO because of HBO’s mismanaging of their budget).

But let’s be honest, isn’t this really like making a sequel of an awful movie?
