Before the crash we had a list on Fitz. After the crash the list is gone. Pretty good list.

I rember

You dont bring a knife to a gun fight, and you dont bring a gun to a Fitz fight.

Superman had to give up his name, Fitz wanted it back.

The East coast ask Fitz to stop doing his landary in the ocean, He was starting Twisters when washing his cloths.

And a LOT other things. Wish some one can repost that list.

Fitz was a wonderful fighter; I have him above Hopkins all time at MW (5 & 6 so it's close).

But I think Fitz could be outboxed by the right man.

Aren't those all just Chuck Norris jokes?

We replace Norris's name with Fitz I suppose. But we all know Norris would have been ko in round 1 vs Fitz.

from what i have seen of fitz he doesnt have the skill to handle a modern fighter like hopkins.

hopkins cuts him down with the jab, then takes him out. fitz may floor bernard with a bomb.........but hopkins would get up and survive.

i see a busted up bob getting taken out by the ref in round 13.

Hopkins is too skilled for Fitz. Hopkins by stoppage. Too much leather on Ruby Rob, even in his time.

I don't know, Norris was a pretty vicious Karate fighter back in the day.

A lot of what you say is reasonable, but I don't see Hopkins stopping Fitz by way of the ruleset we are using. I also don't agree that Hopkkins would get up. Fitz had the one punch power to stop heavyweights. If Hopkins gets hit he stays hit and if he is dropped he is stopped.

The question is, can he Hopkins outbox his man for every single round of a 15 round match up?
