Default Hopkins says he is a Modern day Archie Moore

Bhop must be drunk. Bhop you are no modern day Archie Moore. What an insult to Moore.

Bhop couldnt carry Moore's jockstrap

I love the way Atlas spoke about Hopkins to his face like he was nothing spectacular.

It was almost uncomfortable for me to sit there while Atlas spoke of Hopkins so casually. As if he isn't an ATG.

No, he is not in the same league as Moore. Moore, like many from the older era, often fought 4-5x a year against top competition. I give Hopkins his due for the record, but he is no Moore.

In all fairness, he called himself a modern day Archie Moore, which is true because he's a middle-aged champion who still performs at a high level. He didn't say he's better than Archie Moore or equal to Archie Moore, just that he's serving Archie Moore's role.

B-Hop is 46, and the LHW champion. How is he NOT a modern day Archie Moore?

He is not as good as Moore but he is a legend, he's earned the right to say things like that.
