I'd go Hopkins. It makes it to a decision, but Hopkins takes the fight to McCallum and comes out on top.

My scales tip in favour of McCallum. With his close combat ability he could match B-Hop punch for punch up close and box him ftom a distance.
Tough fight to caal but i think SD fot McCallum

Hopkins as he dictates the fight, and forces it to take place on the inside all night.

in my mind Hopkins fought the better competition in his career-more elite. He didn't lose to Kalambay in his prime like Mike did. I like Hopkins to win a decision in a great fight.

This would be absolutely brilliant to watch...for anyone who appreciated the technical brilliance of the Toney McCallum trilogy, this would certainly be on par. I would take Hopkin's to take the fight to (I know no one remembers an under 40 y/o Hopkin's) McCallum who would time and counter Hopkin's in a beautiful masterclass performance...I like Hopkins 8-4 or so, w/ no KD's or threat of a stoppage.

I think Hopkins proved in his prime that he was not going to lose. I think he was a little better than McCallum.
