Default How do you think today's version of Hopkins does against the current crop of Brits?

How do you think today's version of Hopkins would do against the current crop of Brits around the weight?

There's nobody British who would beat him.

Hopkins would absolutely pick apart everyone except Froch I believe. Only other thing I see close to beating B Hop is age. Dawson is probably the worst fighter I've ever seen in my life and he out boring(ed) Hopkins.

Don't think any of the Brit crop beat him right now.

None of them. Physically he's shot though, can only old man his way through fights due to his superior ring I.Q.

I still think Cleverly would outwork him. But I wouldn't be that confident to get him over here. But he'd beat the others. I really like Bellew, but Hopkins would make it ugly and win a decision.

I've not seen the fight last night, but read he looked horrible.

Too clever for any British fighter.

Froch is the only one with the kind of experience needed to give it a good go.

Beats them all except Froch and he could still beat Froch.

If he boxes on, I think the Cleverly fight can 100% be made now.

It suits everybody and would do massive numbers at the Mill stad.

hopkins beats them all im not a fan of dawson but hes a awkward southpaw whos beaten some world class fighters and hopkins held his own his ring craft is brilliant i think hed take cleverly apart the only way bellew would beat him is stoppage and hopkins has a chin of iron so i dont see that happening frotch would give him a good fight and maybe take it but i think people are looking at his age and thinking hes past it hes still a world class operator certainly isnt the fighter he once was tho
