Default "I'll never lose to a white boy"

If it had been the other way with Calzaghe saying he'll never lose to a black man there would be outrage by the media.

Do you think Hopkins is lucky to get away with a blatant racist remark?

Yea he's getting away with a racist remark cause

1) white people are less sensitve to that kind of shit because they are the majority
2) everyone knows Hopkins is not really a racist.

I don't believe he is racist either, but it was a ****ing stupid thing to say.

Well, your absolutely right I can't argue with you and this is coming from a brown man (Puerto Rican 75% Cuban 25%)

Calzaghe has said some subliminal racist shit too to the media like how he would be popular in America becasue he is white...also how after Pavlivk beat Taylor he immediately invited Pavlick to wacth his fight with Kessler (what the **** was that about)

...on another related subject some of the things he said about Mayweather prior to Saturday were very funny coming from him

For example he compared Saturdays fight with that of his and Lacys (suggesting PBF take the role of one dimensional Lacy and Hatton the skilled Calzaghe )...also talking about how Hatton would knock PBF down a peg or two (However deservedly, Calzaghe is just as ****y as PBF)

Just reading an article that mentioned it and got me thinking that's all.

Just hate the double standards of it. Racism should NOT be tolerated in any shape or form whether it's against blacks, whites, yellows or pink with yellow spots.

We're talking about this again.

B-Hop's daughter and my son go to the same school.

It's a private school - with only 10% Black Students. I guess he really doesn't like WHITE PEOPLE.

HE'S SELLING THE FIGHT YOU ****ING IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!

We already went through this topic yesterday in a thread that probably contained over 5 pages of responses. To put it bluntly, I think we need to forget about it. If Hopkins doesn't think that he'll ever lose to a white boy then let the man think whatever he wants to think. Holmes made a similar statement once, and later on his comeback lost to Brian Nelson. In either case, it really doesn't make a difference.

Ahhh...finally some sensibility. GREAT POST!

Isn't it obvious that Hopkins is just trying to anger people? Maybe he figures if he gets enough Europeans to hate him, that he'll sell out Yankee Stadium and get his 2 million PPV buys...who knows?

Point is...Hopkins is partners with De La Hoya (a Mexican-American) and partners with Richard Schaefer (a white Jewish man), I doubt he's racist...
