I don't see Winky getting stopped. Hopkins decision makes sense, though.

Even against the often times un effective pressure of Taylor it was enough to throw him off his game. I see Winky taking this one out, and Hopkins using a lot of lateral movement but not throwing enough again and thus losing a UD.

I totally agree...Winky is gonna overwhelm Hopkins with volume. At best, Hopkins will land a few solid straight hands, hold Winky and move. Jermain Taylor hit Wright SOLIDLY and flush with his straight right hand many times when they fought and Winky never even showed that he was in the least bit hurt. Once Bernard hits Winky (if he can get past that shield of a guard), and realizes that he has no power to do anything to Winky, he's gonna be in big trouble.
Winky Wright wins this fight on volume.

Winky Wright wins this fight on volume. No matter who wins, it is 100% going to decision, nobody is getting knocked out here.

Tough call...If Winky can fight @170 like 160 with a high workrate, then I'm
leaning toward him. However, Hopkins is fighting to win and will try everthing.
He should find Winky's weakness and capitalize. Tough call. Winky maybe outworking the old man.

This is the fight where Hopkins age catches up with him, he wont be able to keep Winky off of him. Winky's gonna win on workrate and accuracy.

Hopkins will not be there to be hit. His footwork will allow him to evade punishment and pound the flat footed Winky with counters.

Hopkins by UD

Winky's usual strategy won't be useful for him at 170. He won't be able to outbox Bernard at that weight, his jab won't be the same.
