Very good points..and I agree with everything except the verdict. When I've watched Hopkins, I marvel at his tactics to shut an opponent down....His ability to nullify another fighter's strongest weapons is brilliant...Hopkins has the best middleweight defense capbilities that I've seen. These two are very experienced fighters with incredible boxing IQ's.
The reason I go with Ray is his dynamic explosiveness....I think that he may make Hopkins somewhat tentative.BUT Hopkins poses major problems.

I will actually go with Hopkins in this one, much as I love SRR.
Wise choice.
