Re: Could Eubank's unique style have given Hopkins big problems?
McClellan didn't have the boxing skill to hang with Hopkins. His only chance is to get Hopkins out of there within the first few rounds and that's unlikely with Hopkins' defense, craftiness, and chin. Once Hopkins figures out McClellan's movements and timing, he'd take control. McClellan, aside from power and toughness (the former being aided by him boiling down from 200 pounds), never impressed me.
