Default Re: Bernard Hopkins vs Charley Burley

this is all very true and you have offered some very sound observations in this thread, but one thing still remains equally true and not often met!

Hopkins would NEVER have been a MW in those days, so it is a very valid question can he make a career of it at the Top with all those great L-HWs???

it's a very real consideration and demands real perspective regarding him and most other modern fighters for the same reasons (???).

Charley is always described as being similar to Jones Jr. Footage of him is good but does it paint the picture of someone you could favour over Hopkins?

I say yeah slight edge to burley.

Burley still had to train down to his weight, too. DLH did not juice down from a larger weight than Burley to hit 133 lbs. Burley was the naturally larger fighter. If Oscar trained like Burley he would have still come in smaller and lighter.
