Default Re: Could Eubank's unique style have given Hopkins big problems?

Eubank used to drop 20-30 pounds in a week to make the weight. His later fights, a prime Hopkins would just out work him due to his weight problems.

Hopkins has very good whiskers, boxing wise he is technically to good for Eubank.

Check out a video of lewis teaching an old Eubank to throw a left hook close. Eubank was awkward, good power but actually not a great technican. Hopkins beats him all day, except perhaps a young Eubank, if Hopkins whiskers are overated.
