Default Which welterweight would you pick to beat MW version of Hopkins?

Well as we know both Tito and Oscar failed big time.

What if other prominent WW's moved up and fought that version of Hopkins? Who'd you pick to win against him?

Basilio. And i don't even know if he could do it. 50/50 i think.

Armstrong and those giys were before my time so i can't speak about them.

I'd pick Robinson and Leonard to beat him, and possibly Hearns, but that's no given.

Besides those 3, no welterweight beats a prime B-Hop.

Robinson, Leonard, Walker, LMR, Griffith,Burley, Williams...they would all give good accounts of themselves.

Could Paul Williams do a 'Calzaghe' to an old Bhop?

Hes got the size and workrate to cause Hopkins some issues.
