i saw some of cerdans fights and he sure is a powerfull guy. but skillwise, hopkins was way better.

and hopkins was also way taller, with cerdan only being 5´8......short for a middleweight.

cerdan would pressure him and land some good stuff, but hopkins wiskers were made of stern stuff.
he´d simply use his hight and jab and box box box....all the way to a clear UD.

by the way, nice avatar. always had a thing for rosi.

Cerdan is to short and, for Hopkins, would be easy to hit.

Stoppage on accumalation of punishment in a good but one-sided fight.

Hopkins by decision

His size, footwork, defense, and counter punching would see him through to a clear victory

Cerdan was on another level. much more tenacious, better puncher, all of that. Take my word for it, Cerdan wins easy decision.

If anyone wants to see Cerdan, I think the Zale fight is on you tube.

Cerdan was better, but too short, Cerdan's the MW here, BHop is by comparison a L-HW!

in each others era they would never meet.

Cerdan today would be a LW cum WW, or BHop in Cerdan's time would be a L-HW cum HW.

simples!

I agree with you. I think Hopkins is a bit overrated, but then I think most modern fighters are!

Cerdan was no more than a 5-6 blown-up welter, without one-shot pop, who's best days were behind him in the early '40s.

Turn it around: How would B-Hop do against Cerdan at welter?

that's why I say JG, in each others time never the two would meet.

boxing has changed so much in size & weight it's different facts completely that wouldn't be transferable in different era's!

I think that Cerdan was an excellent, fast moving fighter. He looked to my eyes to have quicker hands and feet than the 36 year old Hopkins. I think this is an even match that I would favor Hopkins in but not by much, and on top of that I have not seen Hopkins under 15 rounds of fire.

Tight match, but I go with the stronger, meaner Hopkins on points.
