I'm split on who I think takes this. Apart of me goes along with JC and a part of me goes with Bunny-Hop. I just hope it does not come down to the judges score cards.
Agreed

Is it just me or did anyone think that Kessler didnt look like he performed to the best of his ability when he fought Joe?

I thought it looked like he could have been injured

No, Kessler started well but Joe had him figured out by round 6 and there was nothing Kessler could do. Just take a look at his face of confusion in between rounds.

I certainly will. Hopefully Joe performs to the best of his ability and is just too much for old Bernard to handle.

It troubles me that two of the most knowledgable posters on the Brit forum are picking Hopkins.

hopkins will have to pull of the fight of his life - he looked like an old man against winky wright.. if joe can keep his distance & keep smacking him then the fight will be his but if hopkins gets in close then it could be lights out!!

Good to see TFFP making his usual derrogatory comments about Hopkins the like of which he finds abhorrent when aimed at his idol. Personally nothing would make me happier than to see Joe out cold on the canvas but it's unrealistic. More likely is a close Hopkins UD which would suit me fine.

Joe wastes a lot of punches & he will waste more than ever in this fight. Hopkins will throw the left hook to the body & right to the head & tie up Joe when in close. Joe will get more frustrated as the fight wears on & will leave himself open to more counters.

Joe will win the quiet rounds on work rate but overall Hopkins will just edge it leaving Enzo & ****** whinging for months.

I'd love it if Hopkins won. I don't think he will but it would be great.

Joe all the way. Been following him for years and I'm not going to dessert him now. About time he got some respect across the pond.

I'm backing Joe 100%. He is bringing the title home!

He has the moves, he just needs to show the intelligence. He just needs to get his timing and range down, in the event that his speed and energy don't work. Joe can put the heat on, he just needs to make sure it is effective as he piles up the points.

I'd love to see Joe winning emphatically. A nice wide UD. Something guys like Tarver, Wright, Taylor etc couldn't come close to doing.

Come on Calzaghe!
