Re: Setanta are making a right mess of this.
Hopkins spoiled too much, and with that BS acting on top Cortez should have taken a point off his old boring ass imo.
Bottom line is that this fight would have been a lot better if Hopkins actually boxed when Calzaghe got close instead of holding him all the time or pot shotting, ducking his head and closing his eyes like he was scarred of getting hit.
We saw Hopkins lose his rag, get angry and throwdown once in this fight. For most fo the fight he was negative and stunk the house out.
Hopkins pisses me off. He does'nt work like a great fighter.
I can show people Hagler's fight's and be proud to be a boxing fan.
I can show them something that will make them go "wow, what a tough bastard, a lovely fighter to watch go to work"
I would'nt show them a Bernard Hopkins fight or have the balls tell them how "great" and how much of a "legend" this guy is meant to be.
I just wish Calzaghe would have knocked his ass TFO in the 12th!
