I think he's about 70 now, maybe ripe for a TRT exemption?

I'm rooting for him. There's always something to be said for greatness no matter what the package. And Hopkins is unquestionably great.

Apparently so..Better my pics in one thread than many I guess.
I agree, it's a shame..although I had B-Hop losing clearly against Dawson, he just didn't look like a B-Hop from a few years ago.

Grandfather time for B-Hop :'(

I don't think Trout will win but we will see Canelo's faults (round sleeping, stamina issues, only bursts of punches, lack of prominent jab) brought to the fore here.

I'll wager Trout's UD over Cotto is far better than anything on Alvarez's resume at the moment.
I agree with that. Rhodes was a decent win though, Rhodes was experienced, a solid Euro-level fighter and an awkward banger and he couldn't get anything going.

I do also think Canelo showed a lack of ideas at times, and the stoppage was an anti-climax to say the least.

I do think Canelo has a pretty solid chance at 'success' though. He's what, 168 in the ring? Watch him take the WBO middleweight title or summat then a bauble off some euro-level super middleweight titlist. All while not being particularly spectacular but ticking all the boxes to become the internet boxing forum's favourite fighter to suck off ad infinitum with nauseating hyperbole.

Rhodes ain't bad. He's solid. But Canelo's last string of opponents have been pitiful.
Its a common criticism against canelo, and a fair one. But I think he looked impressive against Lopez and I think Lopez is a good fighter, I think he looked better than people expected. IMO he evolved a lot in the last 2 years.

I think I'm more annoyed at Pac haters/Floydboys more than I ever was at pactards.

lol I'm not annoyed with Manny (other than his fear of needles even though the blood taken has no negative effect on him physiologically speaking)..
I'm more annoyed with Roach.

Interesting fight IMO. Let me know what you think of both, as people don't know too much of Kong the performance slips under the radar but I think considering how the Thai fought and the adjustments Roman had to make it may have been one of the Mexican's best wins.
