Also agree, in the 10th or 11th antwun rocked hopkins good, stunned him.
Agreed i thought he won clearly, i remember some people at the bar believing that winky won:huh
I think he was trying to make a statement about the state of that fight basically.
Whats wrong with saying Calzaghe?
Because Hops didnt win..
Can't be Mercado becasue that was a draw. The rematch that Hopkins won wasn't his hardest fight.
Back in 1993, a tough kid from California named Gilbert Baptist gave Hopkins a very tough night for 12 rounds. One judge only had Hopkins ahead 115-112. And truthfully, I felt it was a fight that could have gone either way. Very competitive.:smoke:smoke
He also gave Terry Norris a very tough fight in 1988.
Taylor 1 because Hopkins really won
My friend met Hopkins in California one time and asked him the same question .. Hopkins said Echols was his toughest fight.
It had that appearance.
Imo it was Echols. Segundo Mercado put Hop down one time legitimately with the other being more of a bad call...but that fight wound up a draw, not a win for Hop. So going by saying that Hop won, I'd go with Echols. Hop dominated that fight, but he showed his chin and true skills against a very tough prime Echols.
