i agreed with jones at the time and i still do.

60/40 was a fair split at the time.

jones was p4p no1 and world light heavyweight champ.

he also held a win over hops.

ego's got in the way of that coming off again.

I actually agreed with RJJ at that time as well. RJJ was P4P king at the time and he did beat him once already.

Now is completely different. It should be 75/25 for Bhop now if he gets past Winky

hopkins was being stupid, rjj was the p4p king and beat him before and he is also the more exciting fighter.

why, they both have the same amount of L's I think. And the fact still remains that RJ beat him. But Bernad is the champ now is the only difference 70/25 is stretching it a bit. I think since both of them want the bigger pot. And 50/50 cant seem to work. They should do 60/40 to the winner. And call it a day

Only problem was...on paper, he never offered more than 70-30. Words are all well and good, but if ya dont put it in the contract, thats all they were.

Fact is, both of them are just as guilty of not making this fight happen.

I think it's fair to say that Hopkins is having the last laugh.
