It wouldn't be a fair fight at this point in time, would have been interesting when Hopkins ducked out years ago though.

unfortunately, this will never happen now.

A prime for prime match up would go to the judges cards and be a controversial decision due to ring craft of both guys being so refined.

Hopkins clock is ticking.. I'm not so sure if I still want to even see this fight. But I think Hopkins at his best would take Calzaghe.

I'd favour Calzaghe now due to his style but prime for prime Hopkins wins a UD.

Right now, I'd say Hopkins by UD. In BHop's prime I think he would win by TKO. In the interest of full disclosure, I admit to being a huge Hopkins fan.

Hopkins is too cagy, too experienced, too smart, too dirty, and too crafty to be easily beaten by anybody from 160 to 175. It would be a close fight as Hopkins is dominant against southpaws and knows how to deal with them along with Calzaghe's workrate and speed. Calzaghe's volume of punches thrown will leave a lot of openings for counterpunch opportunities by Hopkins but if Hopkins isn't very active, he could get outhustled and decisioned. The other thing that I think about with this fight is that Hopkins knows how to deal with speedy fighters...they are nothing new to him. Honestly, I think this is a true 50/50 fight if there ever was one.
