    You don't believe me that Borenard was a loser from the very start of his career? Sounds like YOU are the mentally ill one :bananaride

    Hops isn't winning throwing maybe 30 punches a round...

    Guess he'll throw over a hundred punches per round then instead like when he fought Glen Johnson.

    Or maybe he'll just throw 819 punches over 12 rounds like he did with Joppy when he broke the compubox middleweight record for most power punches landed.

    Possibly. My guess is he'd have much more respect for 3G than those two. Makes me wonder why he threw so little versus Jermain Taylor and a few others.

    All we need to do is watch GGG vs Canelo 1&2 for that.

    Larry Merchant was the worst postfight interview in boxing.

    Where was his guaranteed KO power in those fights?. He was still fighting a naturally smaller opponent, what happened to his MIke Tyson-like power?.

    What happend to Tysons power when he fought Holyfield and Lewis? Oh no! Tyson lost his power, he didn't get a K.O! Everybody knows you can't K.O. everybody.:eatingburger

    Yeah, because Golovkin fighting a blown up Jr. Middleweight is similar to Tyson fighting Holyfield and Lewis. :lol:

    Nothing to do with respect, Hopkins wasn't the type to show fighters respect. Look how he treated Echols who came in with a rep as a huge puncher having KO'ed everyone he beat.

    It was down to his age, his work rate noticeably dropped from the Eastman fight, just before he fought Taylor. By then he was 40 years old, he was slower and no longer had the stamina and so we started being more conservative with his punch out put. Prime Hopkins or even slightly past prime Hopkins would have been able to not only match GGG's work rate but actually out work Golovkin.

    Holyfield was a blown up cruiserweight. One thing Canelo and Holyfield had in common was alleged ped use.

    A blown up Cruiser with 17 Heavyweight fights prior to facing Tyson. :lol: Do you want me to educate you on what "blown up" really means too?.
