On October 11, 2008, at the Palms Casino in Vegas, Dawson fought IBF Light Heavyweight title holder Antonio Tarver. Dawson, who commanded the speed and landed most of the major clouts to get many of the fight, was more effective in methodically wearing out his competition. Tarver landed the occasional punch, but Dawson was in control for all the fight. With 2:11 left in the closing round, Dawson scored a knockdown against Tarver, the only knockdown in the fight. Dawson won the fight by unanimous decision with lots of 117–110 from two judges and 118–109 from the next judge. Dawson brought in $800,000 for the fight and Tarver brought in $1 million.

Dawson himself was complimentary regarding the departing Welsh winner, saying “I applaud Joe’s decision. It is clear he along with his family gave it lots of idea. Time is everything, also to leave center stage at his summit is uncommon and definitely comparable to the retirements of Rocky Marciano and Jim Brown.” Seven months after their very first fight, Dawson and Tarver fought a rematch on May 9, 2009 in Vegas.
