Hopkins will baffle that cunt for a 2nd time if this happens. Hopkins style is all wrong for Tarver.

Hopkins batters Tarver again just like last time. I bet Greens camp are glad they did not tackle Hopkins doubt they would have won a minute of the fight.

What $$$$ are you talking about ? Hopkins schooled Tarver many years ago and is currently the "man" at 175. He should probably fight Chad Dawson next hopefully.
Tarver easily lost to Dawson twice, looked like a fat elephant at heavy fighting a nobody then beats Danny Green.
No one at all would want to see Hopkins-Tarver again. The fight just wouldn't sell in America. America is not like Australia where you can have Mirovic vs Hopoate on PPV.

There is no $ in the US for this fight mate sorry. Been there done that and hbo would not want a bar of it. Also what belt? Hopkins has bigger fish to fry at light heavy and why the hell would Hopkins want Tarvers ibo junk at cruiser when it means nothing at all to his legacy.

Hopkins might even like to fight the Super 6 winner which will definately be Andre Ward.

Yeah I don't think the result would be any different than last time, even though Tarver would be more suited to the heavier weight than Hopkins would be.

That's nonsense!!!
Tarver need to bulldoze the Cruisers division and make it look easy by doing it!
I think he's looking great in this division and non of other title holders and top 10 can touch him!!!

I actually think that if Tarver can withstand a legit cruisers punch then he could work himself to the top of the cruisers. His skills have improved, he takes his time and has more faith in himself than he did at light heavy. I don't care what people say, the Tarver I saw at heavyweight looked like a rejuvenated fighter. Hopkins is too skilled for him, but I really don't think we'll see Tarver back at light heavy at any time anyway.
