I really hope Calzaghe wins and I expect him to lose the decision if the fight gets that far but I really can not see it.

Both are durable but either Joe's work rate will be too much for te old Hopkins to keep up with for the full twelve or due to how great Hopkins is against south paws JC will get too reckless and put on his arse for the ko.

One thing is certain Hopkins has an excellent right counter on southpaws. If Joe eats a dozen of those he WILL get cautious and this could play into his hands.
But to be fair thats being optimisitc.
To be honest I think it's the speed of Joe that will prove to Hopkins' downfall, I don't think he'll be able to cope with Calzaghe's fast in and out style combinations.

I see a wide UD decision. If Joe does find himself being counterd I have no doubt he will alter his gameplan much like he did vs Kessler to turn the fight in his favour.

I see Hopkins having some success but not enough for him to beat Calzaghe.

Neither of them are getting schooled they are both way too good and experienced for that.

That's about how I see it, or JC wins by 6 rounds but is given it by 1 point.

People are going to be in for a big suprise

It won't even be close. Joe will completely dominate this fight.
