That trailer was a bit over the top, especially the small speeded up sequence. To claim that Calzaghe "destroyed" Kessler was pushing it a bit too far as well.

Nobody gets destroyed in this one, it's got stinkfest written all over it. Hopkins is a master at neutralising opponents, whilst Calzaghe is a master at working opponents out.
Joe will end up out neutralising the neutraliser.

I agree it wont be a destruction either way but I still think Hopkins will outpoint Joe. It will be terrible for boxing if Joe wins, an overated WBO boy from a needless division.

At least I can stop hoping that overated WBO boy will face a credible opponent ay?

Bhops is twice the man the golden spoon WBO boy could ever hope to be.

Yes they got it the wrong way round.
"Destroyed" Lacy and "Beat" Kessler is right.

I agree. Two loses to lazy arse Taylor and a win over a stone overweight Winky isn't much form. The Tarver win was very impressive, but how focused was Tarver on the fight as he was filming Rocky 6 at the time IIRC?

Thats fair enough, hardly as bad as Lewis filming instead of training for Rahman. A good win for Hopkins then?

This would have been even better had it happened in 2002.

Obviously Hopkins felt that a bout against a blown up Jnr Middle Carl Daniels was of far more importance.

I just wish Calzaghe would have stepped up and faced a credible opponent.

I can not blame him going fror the money though.

Im looking forward to that. Providing all goes well and Clinton brings his A game he should outwork that stupid scrub to a wide UD. Tarvers a clown. He has no class and his mouth is always writing a cheque that his ass cant cash. Woods by HUMILIATION!
