    The definition of hate isn't saying Hopkins faked a low blow, fought a spoiler role, and didn't deserve the win.

    The definition of hate is watching that fight in slow motion voluntarily.

    If you weren't forced into doing it like Clockwork Orange, I have no idea why you'd do that unless you hated yourself and spare time. I'm glad I wasn't the only one concerned when I read that.

    Yes I have watched Spinks
    Which is why I so clearly favour Calzaghe

    IMO Calzaghes SMW resume is far more impressive than Spinks LHW resume

    You'd favour Joe over Godzilla.

    So what if you think that Joe's SMW resume was better than Spinks' LHW resume?

    How is that relevant?

    Godzilla is fictional and to my knowledge never boxed in any of the films I recall seeing

    Resume is very relevant. You use it in your arguments on a regular basis

    Resumes can be extremely relevant depending on what you're looking at and what point you're trying to make.

    Here we're looking at a hypothetical H2H fight, and how they'd have matched up stylistically.

    Saying that Joe's SMW resume was better than Spinks' LHW resume means nothing.

    I could say that 2 wins over Holmes at HW eclipses any win of Joe's.

    It's irrelevant.

    This is a H2H fight at LHW, against one of the greatest LHW's of all time.

    Joe only ever fought at LHW twice, although you can account for the same day weigh-ins.

    It would have been a huge ask for Joe.

    Clearly favouring Joe is based on nothing. And realistically, Joe would never have signed to fight Spinks. So this is really a double fantasy.

    Clam down mate I quoted the wrong poster , the previous post to yours had some clown declaring " calzaghe couldn't throw a scoring punch if he tried " well I gave one fight as an example that he could .
