Default Hopkins can not beat Calzaghe

At this stage, Calzaghe is just far too active and unconventional for Hopkins. I'd expect Joe to win an tough yet clear decision.

Calzaghe 116-112 Hopkins

I agree, I said so in the R by R thread. Joe throws too many punches for a no action guy like Bernard. Bernard is more skilled but he's too old at this point.

Don't think so pal. I give Calzaghe all the respect in the world, but Hopkins is a whole different bread than Kessler. He's a Philly fighter, and he'll be able to handle a guy like Calzaghe.

Calzaghe would knock him out and end his career.

I agree, calzaghe is still too fast, and can throw 1000 punches without even looking gassed.

Cal is good for sure but still is very wild with punches...he threw a large number of wild hooks and a lot of pitty pat shots with Kessler who just got overwhelmed....B-Hop would have none of that.

Don't under estimate father time. Everytime I doubt him, he proves me wrong. Time will tell though

I agree with this. A prime Hopkins would give him hell but Calzaghe is just to active for a 40+ Hopkins.

Hopkins would beat him, if Hopkins got hit behind the head like that he would of head butted the shit out of Calzaghe. Hopkins is too tough for Calzaghe to beat IMO.
