Id like to see Bernard hopkins knock Wlad Kiltschko or Vitali klitscko down for a 10 count with a BODYSHOT...
That just tells you how average boxing was back then that a 156 pound fighter could win the heavyweight title. Corbett weighed 184 pounds as well, he could've made light heavyweight if he wanted to. How on earth would that be the equivalent of Hopkins stopping a Klitschko with a body shot? That would be closer to being Haye stopping a Klit with a body shot, it's not exactly unbelievable is it.
