Default Re: Will The Executioner Be Executed?

It amazes me that people think that Calzaghe can't beat Hopkins because he "has not fought any big names or anyone comparable to Hopkins skill level". lol.... That was the ONLY reason given why Hopkins beats Calzaghe. A couple of facts:
  • Calzaghe has no deafeats on his record BECAUSE he has outclassed every boxer he's faced.
  • Hopkins pulled out of a fight with Calzaghe AFTER a deal was reached
  • Hopkins got beaten (albeit disputedly) by Taylor twice

Now given the last point and about 75.14% people predicting Calzaghe whoops Taylor's ass - how can this chump (the writer) call the potential fight with Calzaghe so easily? At best for Bernard, it's a 50/50 fight.

I also think a fight with RJJ would be interesting, I doubt BHop could KO Jones but could see him winning a UD.

As for Winky, we'll see shortly.

Couldn't have said it better...Winky's days of moving laterally and sticking and moving are over. He likes to have a person stand in front of him so he can plant and shoot the jab and straight left, but Hopkins will give him angles.

This fight has draw/split decision written all over it..

Prediction: Winky wins a SD in a impossible-to-score fight..

Calzaghe v. hopkins would be a great fight. However, speed would easily tip this fight in Calzaghe's favor for a late rouund Ko. When was the last time B-hop had to deal with a six punch combo.

The question is, would Calzaghe be able to land any of those punches against BHOP's great defense (which is certainly leagues better than anyone Calzaghe has EVER faced)?

KO Hopkins? No, Calzaghe would have trouble landing punches on Hopkins let alone six punches at a time.
