His feet were cold and he blames this on the fact he's black?

As much as I detest Bunce, it really wouldn't surprise me if it happened as he said.

TBH though my main problem is with Hopkins being able to make a remark that Calzaghe would have gotten murdered for. OK, so thats the way of the world but when people try to justify it as well....'he's been though shit', 'he's from the ghetto', yadda yadda...

I think this has gone on long enough. I've said he should have been forced to pay a fine or donate some money charity but thats it. After all Hopkins has given me in terms of entertainment I can forgive him one silly comment & I will still be hoping to see him beat Calzaghe & retire with a smile on his face.

He should apologize but as he doesn't seem genuinely sorry for the comments I guess it would be a pointless exercise. The really annoying aspect is that theres been no real clamour for him to apologize or pay a fine, it just seems to be "OK".

I think Hopkins has been making a bit of a tit of himself recently, to be honest. He claimed (a few months ago) that he was so famous he could come to England, stand on a street corner in Manchester and that everybody would recognize him. Yeah, right.
Now he's moaning about his hot chocolate being made with water instead of milk, and grizzling because somebody suggested he wears woollen socks.
However, I forgive him totally, due to the fact he directed his tantrum at gargoyle faced Bunce, who tried arse licking his way out of the situation, and with any luck, shit his pants.

No more so than Enzo "I'm the best trainer in the world & can do what I want & judge the way other fighters are supposed to win against my boy & constantly use cliche's" Calzaghe.

Either he's got an unusual middle name, or you don't like him!

Had no problem with him until recently. Think this "best trainer in the world" stuff has gone to his head a bit. If Joe, Macca & Rees lose, which is very possible, his world could start quickly crumbling.
