Im stuck on who to pick like i was with Joe vs Kessler. It'll be a very tense fight that wont be fought at any great pace. My heart wants Bhop but head says Joe.

It disturbs me that whenever Joe is involved in a "what If" matchup conversation it is always "Joe is too busy blah blah blah he wins" This is why i want Bhop to knock his ****in teeth straight back past his spine

Yea...I don't mind Calzaghe the man, I like him actually, I'm a fan.

But his other fans annoy me and from relative obscurity...they are starting to really overrate him. I mean destroy Hopkins? turn Hopkins into mince meat? And then rate Kessler on the same level as Hopkins? I mean when has Hopkins not been competitive in a fight? Never, and he's fought the best. He fought Jones and up to a certain point Hopkins was the most competitive against a prime Roy and even his losses to Taylor were close enough they could have been scored for Hopkins.

I agree with Teke on this.
My mind is saying Calzaghe will win on points, but my heart wants Hopkins to cause the upset.
Should be a great fight nonetheless.

Remember New Wind? He (along with deram, but Newwy was no where near as bad as deram) talked up Kessler's chances over JC for probably 2 years. Then 1 month out from the fight he goes MIA and registers under a new username and makes no mention of his formerself. It really beats me why people do that. It's a message board ffs. I was wrong on that fight, very wrong in fact, but at least I could admit it afterwards instead of starting up a new account here, ect.

Let's all just wait a while and see if some of the potential great fights that we all hope for can be made in 2008. The SMW division is just hammering away as the most exiting one out there in these years. Great the the top guys are showing interest in facing each other, imo.
To tell you the truth, my best guess for a future fight involving Kessler would be Mads Larsen.
Here in Denmark and in Germany as well, both fighters have good names and a fight involving these to, staged in Northern Germany would have a good attendance, I'm sure.
But at the end of the day, as Joe would say, it all comes down to the bucks, doesn't it? This is why my green is on Mads Larsen. Sauerland has a lot of pull in these waters and I wonder if not Team Palle would love to see a fight with Larsen go off? Could there be some blood between Laren and Palle? If not, then both are better men than I givethem credit for, hehe.
Kessler will wipe out Larsen inside 5
Anyone not believing me, can join my army
As for who takes this one...well, Joe will be just too busy for Popkins, and he'll outwork him and probably stop him late in the fight.

Joe will win with a late stoppage.

Hopkins was a great champion but Joe's the man at the moment.

I reckon Calzaghe. And TBH I think Kessler would probably beat BHop too.
