Default hopkins could win a major world title next if he wants..

you know something...based on last night...and i cant believe what i am about to say...a 43 year old could win a world title fight at light-heavyweight...bernard hopkins could beat antonio tarver and win that title...he beat him 2 years ago for a lesser 'alaphabet' title...but he, at 43 {again i cant believe i'm saying this} can beat tarver again to win a major world title {ibf light-heavy}...but the fight probably wouldnt make enough money to see it come off...again, its back to the money...

hopkins performance at 43 was an 'out of this world' display...it WILL be a long time before someone of 43 performs at hopkins weight the way hopkins does..thats something that does not happen...i have no explaination of hopkins, he defies all logic..the legend could continue..

Yes, he could beat Tarver and even give Dawson a run for his money in my opinion

What is the point though? He's done enough, its time to call it a day

Last time he lost a controversial decision he moved up two weight classes and shocked everyone so maybe he should do it again!

He is good enough to be a world champion again definately, thing is I dont think HBO will throw any money at any more Hopkins fights, he isnt worth the investment.

Well, he got the Ring title from Tarver too, you've got to remember. A lot of us, for whatever faults they have, feel that the Ring title is really more significant than any one ABC title. Nobody considers the most important title on the line for Hop/Tarver to be the IBO title. It's the Ring title that carried the weight.
