Hopkins is gonna beat the living **** out of Jones, then give him props on a great career and be very classy in victory. Jones will then say he lost on purpose because his father gave him advice prior to the fight and didn't want the man having any credit.

Hopkins aged a lot better than Jones did.
But it will end only on a lopsided point decision, because b-hop hasn't KO'd any opponent for years now. Don't think he will in his career, unless he's ending up with a real tomato can.

I know its not the logical choice, but I have a feeling also, if the odds are good I'll put some money on a Jones UD. But then, I'm a fool.

Two guys say they pick Jones but no one in the poll has yet. Jones might win on points but I am thinking Hopkins either decision or late stoppage.

Hopkins W 12. I could see Hopkins getting Jones in trouble late, but I think Jones will box safe like in the third Tarver fight and be content to go twelve rounds.

You know why I want Jones to win? Because as it is obviously clear that Hopkins is the naturally BIGGER man, Jones spent his career fighting bigger guys, while Hopkins made his name off smaller guys he made COME UP in weight to fight him
Tito (although Hopkins didn't MAKE him come up)
Oscar
Winky
Pavlik

The logical part of my brain is saying that Hopkins will stop him.

I'm going against logic and voting for Jones on points.

Jones via KO has a vote.
