    When Hopkins was a champion in the weight above and willing to face him

    Tell me why you deny calzaghe agreed to go to America years earlier to face Hopkins, only for Hopkins to decide against it and face I believe hakkar for less

    He didn't stay in Wales
    Only around half of his world title fights were in his home country
    Once again you have been exposed for showing a lack of knowledge for what you are posting about

    Right and Ive told you, forget belts and acknowledge ottke beat the lineal smw champ and fighter who went on to become lhw lineal champ
    Can't see what you don't get?
    The lineal is about beating the man who beat the man, not so much about titles

    I see this is hurting you and causing you to loop

    Yes that is a shame
    I read an article where I believe it was ottkes trainer who said he wasn't interested in that fight
    Happens sadly
    Jones/michalczewski
    Is a good example.
    Michalczewski beat the man who beat the man and Jones picked up some of his vacated titles

    do you mean why did a fighter who had never fought on the biggest stage of all couldn't get a fight against the P4P#2 fighter who only fought on the biggest stage of all?
    is that what you mean?

    What have belts got to do with michalczewski beating the man?
    This is you saying this to hide behind giving proper answers, so let's try it another way for you

    If Jones had of beaten prime michalczewski at lhw, what lhw win would he have that would be considered greater?

    Real simple for you now

    You know he didn't, but that doesn't detract from him having a very good resume
    Still not sure why you are bringing up Kessler when I have already explained to you that he wasn't really a major factor at that time.

    you're only playing 'what if' posts because the fighter who wasn't fighting on the biggest stage of all chose not to make that move.
    you know that, right?
