Default Are you hyped for BHOP-Winky

I am after watching the countdown Iv never understood this winky is boring argument watch his fights with Taylor,Ike and Vargas all entertaining fights, Hopkins is a craftsman and his last fight with Tarver was entertaining to so i think this will be a much better fight then most give it credit for.

On the countdown it was funny when Tito came to see Winky and Bernard said " Whats Tito gonna tell him to do that he didnt do in 12 rounds and got knocked out"

I think that is damning evidence that the G word is over used. One day either may be Great (although it is unlikely), but neither are as we speak.

Wow you dont think Bernard is a ATG? 20 title defenses at middleweight dont count for anything

What!!! Hopkins hade 6 successful defences of the World Championship at Middleweight. I rate 35 fighters as Great, Hopkins is sneaking into the top 50, but is not in my top 35.

Whether you agree or not with my 35 fighters is one thing. But I think it is important to keep the G word special and thus conclude that no more than 30 or 40 fighters have ever been great.

I'm hyped for this fight and everybody i konw got money on b-hop by decision,but i think hopkins stops winky in the 12th,because to me hopkins in the later rounds is more active and winky play's it safe.It will come down to the later rounds and whoever wants it most will come out with the win,i think the fight will be even through 8 rounds,after that hopkins will step up the tempo and show why he's the master at figuring out and beating southpaws.

Are you out of your frigg'n mind???? B-Hop is hands down an all-time Great and one of the best Middleweights of all-time. Winky is likely to be remembered as one of the best Jr. Middle's of all time and by far the best at that weight in his era. A win over B-Hop solidifies Winky's claim as great. Just look what Winky's done and then come back to me....oh and watch the Vargas fight, because he won that one too

Hopkins definitely, but Wright definitely not. Winky's got potential to get there, but he has not accomplished enough yet and is getting past his prime.

You are abusing the word Great by putting Wright in the frame, and Hopkins is pick-em at best.

Both are excellent fighters, Hopkins might even be brilliant, but they both fall short of being great IMO.

This might turn into a great fight, but I am not sure, if this will be like kissing your sister on the chic type of fight, and get to the bank to deposit the fat check....
