Default Bernard Hopkins vs Thomas Hearns

Middleweight 15 Rounds?

I'm leaning towards Hopkins by late KO

I got Hopkins on this one, probably late stoppage. He would bully Hearns around IMO and land short shots in close.

No chance boys, Hopkins isn't delivering anything Hearns has'nt seen before, and the Hitman would be the one to present the most danger here!

Would be interesting to see how Hopkins would deal with Tommy´s jab.....I can see Hearns winning this one tbh..

Hopkins wins this one wide and as has been said a mid-late stoppage a clear possibility.

Smother Tommy inside and use his head movement and his own jab. Hearns kept his hands low and Hopkins had a very sneaky overhand right that he would land over Tom's low left.

I'd pick Hearns by UD. Hopkins doesn't fight in a judge friendly style, while Hearns does. Hearns is too good of a boxer to get Trinidaded. Close, but clear UD.

Hopkins would come to the ring with a masterplan. He would have 15 long rounds to break Hearns down. Hopkins by late stoppage no doubt

Hearns at 160 and south of 160 may be a stoppage, B-Hop North of 170lbs on pts

Hopkins all the way. Prime young Hopkins could crack and Hearns has no chin. Hopkins by KO or wide UD.
