Default You all do know that....

Winky vs Hopkins is this saturday!!!



and there is not 1 thread about it in the first 3 pages of this forum,shame on you all

This is a legacy fight, if BHOP wins you have to consider him as an ATG if Winky wins that is one more big name to a great resume.

Let the chess match begin

the fact that this fight is being billed as a championship is a joke. dont get me wrong, both guys are guaranteed future HOFers but the fact that hopkins is coming out of retirement to put his ring belt on the line is ridiculous. 170 lbs is not the LHW division. in fact its closer to the 168 lb SMW limit.

This will be a great fight, I'm really looking forward to it. It's not often that two of the very best of their era fight one another.

No rule say you have to be 175 to fight as a Lt heavyweight. In fact many times during his reign as lt heavyweight champ Jones was barely over 170

if winky wins he would (for me anyway) get an atg status so dominant he was in the light middlewieght

Cant wait to see a fight between two of the best technicians of the past generation. Something tells me this fight is going to be more interesting than most people think. Wright UD

look at the olden days records most ment didnt even gain wieght to fight for different wieght classes ketchel,fitzsimmons were wieghing in around the same.

i have no problem that people can win the belt at a certain wieght but must defend it at that wieght

Looking forward to this fight. I'm interested in seeing if BHop can hold off Father Time for a while longer. I have a feeling that this one is going to have more action than the naysayers are predicting.

Cant wait for this fight, rooting for Wright but Bhop knows how to fight fighters like winky, 50/50 in my book.
