Default Is it fair to say now that Calzaghe's win over Hopkins trumps any win Mayeather has?

With Hopkins coming into his prime years during his 40's Joe's fantastic win over him is looking better and better. There's no stopping Hopkins now that ATG's like Calzaghe are no longer about but never the less, almost a decade after getting whipped by Joe, Hopkins is still able to score perhaps his best ever wins. His recent trio of wins over Cloud, Murat and Shemenov are impressive.

As we all know Mayweather doesn't really have a win over anybody who went on to do anything worthwhile after Mayweather fought them in their near 40's. Probably Ricky Hatton is Floyd's best ever win over a prime opponent, but he did nothing remotely worthwhile after. Embarrassingly getting KTFO in a couple of his next fights if I remember correctly.

Without question. Anyone who votes no is a MASSIVE FloMo or a troll.

Most boxing fans, and I'm mean boxing fans not Brittards agree that BHOP won that fight.

It's fair to say Calzaghe's win beats any win that Vlad Klitscho has but Mayweather? Hell no.

Plus, Calzaghe barely won the fight . I had him down 2 points and he went down from a right hand in rd 1.

Actually most journalist- not Britards or AmericanTards- impartial members of the boxing media KNOW Calzaghe won

Yes, it's very fair to say. And this idea that Hopkins was robbed in his own back yard is all kinds of lol.

Joe bent him over in front of a viewing audience of millions and bummed him too. B-Hop was his bitch and kept pulling his crybaby face trying to quit.

Calzaghe's win over Hopkins does not "trump" multiple wins of Mayweather. Mayweather has wins comparable to if not maybe a little better.

LOL....


Calzaghe looked like dog shit against Bernard.... got taught a counter punching masterclass... but racist judges gave him the decision...


Calzaghe got dropped by a shot Roy Jones... says everything that needs to be said about his skill level.

Such as?

Mayweather has never even been in the ring with anyone anywhere near as good as Hopkins

Oh, so why was you loving it when Broner did it to Maidana?

Hopkins was used to it anyway after being in jail.

FloMo can't answer the question posed in the thread because he knows Joe has a better win than Mayweather
