Default James Toney vs Bernard Hopkins @ 168 or 160 in 1993

This is merely hypothetical but, since it never happened I've always wondered who would take it. Who would win this back in 93? What do you guys think?

I say James toney by U.D.
Toney was on a different level than Nard at that time.

Toney in 93, as he could still move his feet.

Anything post 97/98 I pick Hopkins to out manouver him.

This fight would of been a text book matchup of leading, countering and ring intelligence. Real shame it didn't happen.

I would have love to see this fight . Toney was a pretty good athlete back in his day , he would have gave Bernard problems in the ring . But i see Hopkins outpointing him .

93 Hopkins was green and would lose a UD, prime for prime Hopkins wins a UD though.

Toney was a better fighter than Hopkins in 1993. At 160, he'd be drained and lose. But at 168 in the form he fought Barkley in, he'd take a clear-cut decision.
