Hopkins slagging a white fighter?

Shocking development!

That anybody-outside of ESB's resident black panthers-- gives a shit what he has to say is beyond me.

He's not gonna say. "Yeah that guy I wanna fight next is easy work".
Just goes to show he will never fight Kovalev.
Lol.

Kovalev is even more irrelevant than Hopkins. Stevenson just jumped ship for a *bigger* payday to fight Hopkins on Showtime. Meanwhile, Kovalev is left @ HBO holding his dick. If Kovalev is SO significant, why didn't HBO un-ass the money to keep Stevenson from jumping ship?

YOU are the one who claims that Kovalev is "calling the shots."

Let see if you in all of your infinite wisdom can back that claim.

We're waiting, Genius...

On AD:

"Adonis Stevenson would give anybody in the light heavyweight division problems, because, not only does he have the IQ that he learned from one of the greatest trainers in the history of boxing, Emanuel Steward, but he's also an athlete. He's not one-dimensional,"

"So when you have that situation with a guy like Kovalev, even if you try to teach something to the guy that's one-dimensional, when it gets hot, Kovalev's going to go back to what he's notorious for, and what has traditionally been working for him. His natural instincts will say, 'well, this ain't working, let me go back to what got me all of these knockouts.'''

True to form as ever Bernard
Translation:

BHOP: I can probably beat Stevenson by hugging him and smothering his work while pounding shots to his ribcage and headbutting him.
BHop: Kovalev would KMTFO in the first rd.

Im glad Adonis came to Showtime so I can make my roid dealer the goat.

I can't wait for Ward to move up so this fraud can get exposed for what it really is...

Though Showtime was ready to televise Hopkins against then-mandatory Karo Murat on July 13 -- before Murat dropped out because of an inability to get a visa -- the network, from what Hopkins said, is not interested in putting him on against Kovalev.

Go figure, because Hopkins-Kovalev is a much, much more interesting fight than Hopkins-Murat ever was.
...
"For me, it’s a no-brainer,” the 48-year-old Hopkins said. “Kovalev can go get Cleverly

Delusional.

He is too old now. He got old. Kovalev would knock him out and he will never get in the ring with Kovalev.

of course his racist ass will stick up for the black bum. Soapy is still butthurt a white boy jumped up a weight class and wiped the floor with his face on his home turf.

Bhops legacy will forever be tarnished from losing to a euro level boxer that trained out in a shed behind his house

I really hope B-hop never gets in the ring with Kovalev. At this age kovalev will hurt him and possible badly. These ain't Pascal's shots...

Kovalev calling the shots? you a funny guy.
