I know and I am loathe to dig this one up. I saw it for Calzaghe all the way, even taking out my disgust at Hopkins bullshit faking of the low blow so he could catch his breath. The real litmus was Max Kellerman admitting that Hopkins was too far behind to win in the 11th. And if there was ever a nuthugger, Kellerman wears balls on his chin like no other.

I understand that people appreciate the level and sophistication of Hopkins' skill (I do, too), but at times they over-appreciate it when volume, pace and effectiveness are burying the infrequent cute displays he offers.
