Hopkins a a big con. Everyone talks about his great stamina....etc. When's the last time he's thrown a combination or actually fought for an entire round.He does nothing more then try to steal rounds off of his reputation.His right hand lead thrown with his eyes closed then falling into a clinch is old news. Wright will take this fight as long as he stays consistent.

Winky running from Bernard?? Ok. Bernard couldn't finish Taylor after he had him hurt badly! Bernard has absolutely no chance of hurting, let alone forcing Winky to retreat.

Hopkins will sleepwalk through the first 6 rounds, occassionally firing in the last 30 seconds. He'll step it up in the second half, despite landing less. Commentators will talk of his power and aggression as he lands grazing arm-punches while going backwards.

Hopkins gets the decision and his fans will use the Taylor method of explaining robberies against Wright: justify the bullshit based on Hopkins's "aggressiveness" (counter-punching) and his "breaking through the defense" (moving Winky's gloves with his punches). They'll talk about how Winky gave away rounds by just outlanding Hopkins and making him miss.

I'm allergic to bullshit, and just the thought of this fight is bringing me out in anapalaptic shock.

It's more like the first 8 rounds.
