We all know that b-hop cant knock joe out as he has too good a chin.

However I do agree that bernard can do what kessler did and pick Jc of, which he did if you watch the fight again.

That being said I just see Calzaghe bringing home the belt maybe via late stoppage.

I will be watching from the balcony

Yes, probably

Calzaghe earned alot of respect from me in beating Lacy and more so when beating Kessler.

Hopkinds has done nothing but annoy me lately, shelfish cunt with negative comments. If he comes out of Oscars arse to fight i will be hoping he is KO'd more than likely

I get behind the majority of the Brits but some of them just do my head in.

Calzaghe wins this for me, and i don't think Bernard hits harder than Kessler.

Yeah, Calzaghe for me.

If Hopkins was British and Calzaghe was American I'd still be pro Calzaghe, he's just better.

Iv been a long time fan of both fighters but Calzaghe will win im sure.

Hopkins legend status is a little bit inflated due to his key wins coming vs natural welters. But americans know who these little guys were and Nard beat them so hes a legend!

The Tarver win was good...but lets face it Tarver has always been a lazy fighter. Joe on the other hand...

I still cant believe Joe went public with that one

Im a BHOP fan, & will be cheering him on. I respect Calzaghe as a damn fine fighter, but my heart lies with Hopkins, & Im sure BHOP is going to give Calzaghe hell, despite his age. As BHOP said himself, he doesnt want anyone making excuses for Joe when old man Hopkins beats him!

I have watched & enjoyed BHOP for years, & I cant believe Calzaghe has taken this fight. Silly Joe. & as for that da of Joes disrespecting Hopkins by screaming in his face? That old geezer needs anger management classes. Is he ever calm or happy?
