Default winky wright will beat Hopkins

the only thing im worried about is hopkins is much bigger than him. but winky's defense is impenetrable. i expect hopkins to try and knock him out and he will end up punching himself out in the early goings and winky will pick up the pieces and a decision by the end of the fight

Since when does Hopkins go for the early KO, and punch himself out?

Hopkins by wide UD.

It's definitely a real possibility that Winky will win, but not as you described it.

Hopkins is going to beat Winky. WInky's style is kinda made to take punishment. ANd Hopkins is a seasoned veteran who understands that. Hopkins is going to punish WInky the whole night. DOntg et me wrong Winky can pull it off. But I see Hopkins outbxing him to a UD. Winky is going to take a lot of punishment in this fight, I promise you

first off Winky marks up fairly easy

second off, most of the marks on Winkys face after that fight was not from punches that got through. Its just because Winky holds his gloves right to his face. . when you have someone beating away at the back of your gloves while they are pressed against you. .well, you get marked up

Hopkins is a genius, hes such an experienced and skilled pro that Wright wont be able to deal with him. Other than speed Winky has no adavantages over Hopkins. Hopkins os more skilled, bigger, more powerfull, more experienced, hell hes so experienced that he can read every opponent. In his last fights at middleweight he had some verry close fights with Taylor but after he moved up he seemed to be better, fresher and stronger again. Hopkins should have moved up some years earlier, as he got older he ot weaker at 160 but for some reason he stayed at 160. He will fight Winky at 170 pounds that will be a great weight for Hopkins while Winky is to small than that and will be much lighter than Hopkins on fightnight. I think Hopkins could stop Winky, who thought he could stop Tarver?? I think he will stop Winky too! It will once again be an great display of experience, skill, ring generalship, tactics and power and it will end dramatic!

HOPKINS IS 10 - 0 AGAINST SOUTHPAWS, WINKY WOULD BE THE BEST OF THE SOUTH PAWS HE HAS FOUGHT BUT I THINK WINKY WILL WIN.OH AND HOPKINS AINT GOING FOR NO EARLY KO EITHER.HES GONE TRY TO USE HIS SIZE AND PUSH WINKY AROUND ON THE INSIDE IF THAT DONT WORK HE WILL KEEP THE 5'8 OR 9 WINKY AWAY WITH HIS OWN JAB.

He didn't stop Tarver, but I agree with you when you say B-Hop will win.
