Ladies who have seen Rocky Balboa: Did you like Mason "The Line" Dixon Did you think he was a cool adversary?
And do you think him having his own "Mickey" type manager humanized him more to make him more sympathetic to audiences?

It's really hard to think of Mason Dixon as anything other than just Antonio Tarver. I'm guessing you meant ladies who aren't fight fans. ;-D
I think he was alright as an adversary. I won't say great because anyone who goes into the ring without really respecting his opponent can't be great--no matter how washed up that opponent may be. I would have liked to see him fight more or train more. That's the only thing I would have payed attention to.
Either way, the movie was really about Rocky fighting himself. Dixon had the least build-up of any of Rocky's opponents and seemed to be thrown in there as an afterthought, which was really disappointing. It's okay, though, because I have some of Tarver's fights that more than make up for it. :)
