At the end of the 12 rounds, all three judges had Dawson winning handily by scores of 117-111, 118-110, 116-112..
On the Hopkins vs Pascal undercard welterweight Kevin Bizier, 15-0-(11), knocked out Mauro Lucero, 46-14-1, with a left hook to the body in the fifth round. A clash of heads earlier in the round opened a bad gash over the eye of Lucero
