It's like a blind spot in their thinking. It's amazing.

Hopkins is no doubt a legend but Calzaghe could come out of retirement take a tune up and easily beat him again within six months.

I know Calzaghe was not in prison and does not use a bunch of ghetto slan or even claim at every opportunity how everyone is against him and wants him to fail because he is antiestablishment.

He is simply better boxer than Hopkins. I know this hurts many of your deep down to your brainwashed cores.

Plus, I believe this. It's not like I'm putting out the Theory Of Relativity here. This is a corollary to what happened tonight, same as it is in many other, similar situations.
You're right, in that case Floyd still has a case to be ranked ahead of Pac. Pac may have more achievements (Like Hops does to Calzaghe), but he has the perfect record, and has beat many of the great fighters Pac feasted his way up on the divisions against opposition Floyd already provided the blueprint for.

Oscar, Hatton, and Mosley.

And, when Taylor gets to 46-0, let me know.
I guess it just can't be a matter of styles.

Uhhh, Taylor was shot by the Pavlik fights.

Hopkins -- 6' 01"
Calz ----- 5' 11"

Hopkins has been fighting for 23 years. Professionally. You think he didn't go up in weight through that?

By the way, Hopkins' weight in his first professional fight?

177 pounds.

What idiot would think they're an idiot? Maybe an idiot with low self-esteem? Well Paul, you don't have low self-esteem.

Yes, he is. Always was, always would be. And I am a HUGE Hopkins fan. HUGE.

I believe Calzaghe's accomplishments in the last two years surpass those of anyone else in the entire sport.
