Very badly IMO. More so than he appeared to have against Dawson. As I said before, you need more than a high workrate to beat B-Hop

I was hoping you'd started something a bit more controversial Rico.

Although I hope B-Hop turns back time again I just don't see It, I'm no Cleverly fan but his work rate will win him this fight.

I'd love nothing more than for Bernard to roll back the years again but Clev's work rate would be far too high.
This is a bad fight for Bernard.The worst type of opponent...busy.

I don't think Dawson's win over Hopkins means anything, all that fight served was to show that Hopkins is finished. He still has his box of tricks, and he'll see out the 12 rounds and win 1 or 2, but in terms of winning the fight? He has nothing. The Hopkins that schooled Pavlik would have beaten both Dawson and Cleverly

Yah because hopkins looked exceptional vs Holmes/Echols and Robert Allen! LOL.

Cleverley's style is a bit of a nightmare for hopkins! He's not Kelly Pavlik...

Hopkins is gonna fight Cloud on March 9.
I think he's gonna school Cloud badly. Which would serve justice after how badly Campillo got blatantly robbed.
