Default Younger Bernard Hopkins

Of course when he was well known, later in his career, he was known for being a defensive (and mostly boring, at least to my eyes) fighter. Many people haven't seen too many of his earlier fights and he was such a beast then. I've seen a few of his older fights and was impressed by his clinical aggression. I'm just checking out his fight with Wendall Hall and this fight shows his younger style nicely. At one point Al Bernstein compares him to Julian Jackson in his fight against Dennis Milton. He took Hall's legs away from him and never let him recover.

I also remember his fight with Aquino being a good one.
