    I agree that Nunn would be by far Bernard’s best opponent next to Jones

    I went with B-Hop via decision. I think anything is possible however given that neither man ever faced anyone of the other’s caliber at 160 with the exception of Nunn’s fight with Toney which he lost.

    Well Nunn did fight Kalambey who is also in that league head to head in my view

    Hopkins roughs up and outhustles Nunn to edge by with a split decision in a stinker.

    Agree. Sumbu Kalambay was an exceptional middle weight of that era. I don’t rate him as being as good as Hopkins however but still a good scalp

    Then maybe Curry, but also the Sosa and possible the rematch vs. Cordoba.

    Curry didn't go past 10 either, and Curry did nothing at MW so beating him doesn't tell us much either way. Sosa and Cordoba was at 168. I didn't specify MW, but that was the weight I was referring to since it's where this fight would take place.

    Nunn, unanimous dec. See Hopkins performance against another
    super fast boxer for reference. If their is one middleweight
    in history that may have had quicker hands and feet than
    R.Jones it's M.Nunn, plus Nunn was tall and a southpaw
    I believe Nunn wins this one convincingly. Hopkins would
    need to repeat what Toney did in order to win this.
    And that was almost a fluke. Hopkins wasn't as
    fast or as powerful as Toney was at middleweight.

    Jones was better than Nunn. (I am aware that Bhop lost.)

    Is it so much difference if few second more or less?:dunno It was ended in round 10.

    In which division someone can go 12 rounds seems not important here either. So all these fights show he could go over that distance very well.
    Do you think it is easier in another weight-class to do that (like in Super-Middleweight or Light-Heavyweight)?

    By the way he was a lot taller than 168cm...:deal:

    Yes, if you cut/drain a lot to make weight.
