Default Hopkins- Jones 2 Can Now Happen!

This big fight can easily be made now and would be a big sell. Both guys just won their LH fights, Bhop would like to avenge the 1994 loss and Jones wants to be on top again. This is the best cahnce in the last 10 years for this!

BHOP should end Jones and then retire.

The timing is perfect, both have just won. This fight should be made.

As a fan of both fighters....I really dont want this to happen. Right now, it would in all probability be an embarassing win for Bernard. I just cant imagine Roy goin out like that.

But its very likely it would happen. Id bet he goes after Calzaghe first and then retires after beating Roy.

If each tried to make this rematch deal very difficult for the past 14 yrs, why do you think it will get any easier now?

I pretty much don't care if they fight again or not.

Don't want to see Hopkins lose nor watch him fight Roy. Hopkins/Dawson would make for a better fight.

Calzag is high risk/low reward.

Jones said after Hanshaw fight, "i'll fight anyone but Hopkins" becase Hopkins wanted 65-45 the last 2 times over the last 2 years they tried to put the fight together. He feels Hopkins said he'd do 50-50 then changed his mind and lost his opportunity to avenge a loss. HBO had the fight scheduled last year before he fought Tarver. Hopkins wouldn't do 50-50.

Low reward? A fight with Calzaghe in UK would prolly be Hopkins' 2nd biggest purse ever next to the DLH fight.

Hopkins should do 50/50 with Jones, its him that has to avenge a loss and he's still not a draw...

I'd say Calzaghe is massive risk, massive reward, actually.

Hell, even forget the money. Hopkins wants Legacy, and this is it.
