I get hyped for ANY fight, and considering Hopkins is one of my favorite modern fighters, I have a rooting interest in this fight!! Here's hoping the Executioner turns in another amazing performance!!

This fight does very little for me. I hope I will be wrong, and the fight will be a blast to watch, but I think it will be a snoozefest.

It's one of the most interesting fights in recent memory. In my opinion they are two ATG's. Winky is underrated himself, possibly one of the 50 best fighters i've seen.

Bernard IMO could easily be top 20-25 ATG.

Intrigued from a technical and scientific stand point yes. Even a little intrigued from a gladiatorial stand point because this is boxing and fights can always break out...

...BUT...

...the more these two talk about a war, the more I get turned off. X has said it a million times and Winky is getting carried away.

I can't help but watch X and think he isn't the same man he was 5 years ago. He could fight HARD but I'm not sure he can do it now. If he could, why didn't he do it v Taylor. Then again maybe the weight at that stage was draining him.

How is Winky going to handle the 170? His main game is to jab and come forward betwen a high guard. Will he produce what he did v Ike against a 6'1, 180 pound man?

There is a possibility for a FIGHT but I am intrigued from a TECHNICAL standpoint. If a fight breaks out then great, I win even more.

It will be very interesting to watch. Logically I feel that Hopkins can't do anything to get past Wright's defense, but if ANYONE could figure out a way, it is Bernard.

My guess is he's going to be landing counter right hands all night and win a comfy UD.

Few can talk about Tito and Taylor being their girlfriends and still come off like a thug. Tyson is one of these people, X is another.

I'm going for Winky to school Hopkins. Hopkins talks lots of trash but he doesn't back it up like he says. He wins and is a legend he needs to stop his tlak about this is war i'm ready to die my life or yours lol. Unless he's Marvin hagler who talks war with people and warred when he said he would X shouldn't claim such. I remember him talking about putting pressure on Taylor for there rematch and how he would knock him out but when fight time came he did the exact opposite. X is a great cerebral boxer but i can't stand his talk about how he is going to do this or that. Str8 up he should say i will win a decision. You can't take what the man says serious he made a promise to his mother he would stop fighting he kept talking about he is done once he reaches a certian age and he is just like anybody else still fighting. The fight will be a good fight if Hopkins makes it such Winky is always there to fight and its up to the his opponents to make it a good fight.

Winky will school the old man and put him into retirement. Hopkins is
9-0 against southpaws but its time for that O to Go.

I'm super psyched for this one now that it's here. I never thought it made sense, but **** it! How often do two top five P4P guys square off?
