Joe C. No question.

I've backed this up with some cash at the bookie.

I'm going with Calzaghe but would not be surprised to see Hopkins pull off the upset. I very much doubt he'll stop JC though. JC has a tough beard and I find it unlikely Hopkins has enough pop to continually do enough damage to warrant a stoppage.

Although if it was on cuts???

hops on a close decision.

i think he'll be sharper with the counters at range and disrupt calzaghe's game up close.

really hope i'm wrong.

My official pick id Joe wide UD or late accumulation stoppage.

I do have a bit of a suspicition it might just pan out like this..... After Joe forcing Bernie to fight at a faster pace than normal, around the mid rounds Bernie will suddenly start feeling his age and realise he cant make 12 rounds and therefore needs a KO. At that point he'd switch from trying to counter to trying to drag Joe into a brawl which he initially does well in. Joe, never being one to back down, would get suckered into it. However, as Hopkins blows his bolt Joe comes back and draws a stoppage from the ref with a knackered Hopkins still on his feet but taking a beating. On that basis I'm having a sneaky few quid on rounds 6,7,8 for a stoppage win to JC.

Much more likely its a bit of a stinker of course.
