Damn. Hell of a fight. I would just barely give to edge to Toney.

he didn't see the actual fights. he just looked at Hopkins record on boxrec.com

Nard adapted to his opponent. Toney like guys coming right at him and no way Bernard would make that mistake. Toney would show up weighing about 195 on fight night, lose and bitch about how he was weight drained and bernard refused to stand in one place and "fight like a man"

If each showed up at their best, I'd favor Toney slightly, but the equalizer is that Hopkins was more consistent at the weight. We were more likely to see the best Hopkins than the best Toney, so that means it'd be a toss up as to the actual outcome.
