    1 fight from retirement, hands ****ed completely and drug free, he had to retire or start popping pills like Bernard to carry on with his physical issues !

    Still doesn’t change the fact that he was 41 and also past it. You can’t possibly be serious to consider Hopkins prime material at 41. We have eyes and have watched him in his prime to know it’s clearly not the case.

    He's an old, tired warhorse with nothing left to prove. He's earned plenty of money, time to hang up his gloves and stop rolling the dice with his health at stake.

    Canelo needs to fight either Smith, Saunders or Andrade.

    No, or Calzaghe though, but physical health Hopkins was in far better nick, late starter in his career and two hands that he didn't have to worry about..Its a tough fight both prime

    If he would fight Beterbiev, there would be no asterisk.

    I think he is more likely to move up or down though. Pick up a title in a different weight class wherever the opportunities looks the best.

    A little part of me thinks he might surprise us with a genuine opponent at 175, or someone very credible at 168, his confidence must be sky high at the moment

    Calzaghe wasn’t over 40 and still had his insane activity.

    Kovalev is finished. Gatekeeper now.

    He'll never be world champion again.

    I think you are right about Canelo. I think he would fight anybody. His management team though... he is their golden cash cow. They will make sure all odds are in Conelo's favor.

    Kov is done. He is chin is gone at this age. Kinda like Roy Jones. He's been hurt in the last 4 fights , 2 resulting in KO loses. The shot that Koed him doesn't even look as hard as the shots he landed on GGG.



    It's time to hang it up.

    He will not be offered a rematch. That fight was boring as hell and Kovalev's weak chin was exposed once again. How can he be knocked out by that little guy not known for having power. Kovalev fought like **** and fought scared. Kovalev 's chin was exposed a long time ago. You can't fix a weak chin. Kovalev always comes up short in big fights. I would have to say Kovalev has been overrated all of these years. GGG is overrated as well be he has a better chin than Kovalev for sure. The more Canelo wins the more Mayweather's stock goes up. Mayweather beat Canelo with ease.
