    Default Hopkins is given his WBC title back

    The fight ended in bizarre controversy with Dawson being declared a second-round knockout winner after Hopkins - the oldest world champion in history at the age of 46 - was lifted by his opponent and dumped onto the canvas on his shoulder.

    Hopkins landed awkwardly on the edge of the ring, suffered a dislocation of the joint connecting his left shoulder to his collar bone, and was unable to continue.

    However, referee Pat Russell awarded Dawson a TKO victory. Instead of waiting for a ruling from the California State Athletic Commission the Mexico City-based sanctioning organization reinstated Hopkins as its 175-pound world champion and declared the fight a technical draw.

    The right decision was made in the end then...how is it possible for a fight to be won by throwing liftin and throwing to the ground in a sport that's only offence is throw punchs,that ref should never step foot in a ring again
