    What we have here is an example of a person who knows what should the outcome of something not go his way he stands to lose money in the long run.

    Let's cut the bull****. The real answer is that it is mainly because of his typical racial hostility towards perceived whites, which is accelerated when they are a direct threat to him either in the ring or in the record books. GGG is of course mixed race but to Hopkins and many of his tribe he seems like a white man and is non-black anyway, which is enough.

    If you have an individual like this making numerous passive aggressive and diminishing remarks towards white opponents, specially referring to their racial type, only a liar would claim Hopkins does not harbour hostile racial views. That is natural on this planet, however stop excusing it so you can worship him the better. It's absurdly palpable by now and is obviously what made the Joe 'just another white boi' Smith action movie KO of Hopkins so deeply amusing and satisfying.

    Now why doesn't he hate Canelo then? Three reasons. He's a Goldenboy fighter obviously. He's not a direct threat to Hopkins. And Canelo is Mexican, actually mestizo just with pale skin from his ginger genes, and from an ethno-political standpoint not in anyway associated with white people. Yes, he is non-black, but politically fits into the 'minority coalition' against the white host.

    I know it's hard for you white fans to deal with the fact so many of the competitors you idolise actually hate you, AJ being the most cartoonish recent example, but try to live in the real world.

    Because Hopkins is a co-owner of Golden Boy. Golden Boy promotes Canelo.

    Hopkins: Mentioning 'Caveman' GGG With Hagler Disrespectful




    LAS VEGAS – Bernard Hopkins readily admits he has “an agenda.”

    Not only is the retired legend a partner in the company that promotes Canelo Alvarez, the Mexican icon can prevent Gennady Golovkin from breaking Hopkins’ record for consecutive middleweight title defenses by beating Golovkin on Saturday night. Hopkins recognizes that their rematch should amount to another close fight Saturday night, though, and respects Golovkin’s considerable power.

    Where Hopkins draws the proverbial line is when he hears or reads about anyone mentioning Golovkin in the same sentence as Marvin Hagler.



    Hopkins’ opinion reflects conventional wisdom, that Hagler is one of the absolute best middleweights in boxing history. He’s not sure if Golovkin even cracks his top 20 historically within the 160-pound division.

    “Don’t never mention Marvin Hagler and Triple-G in the same breath,” Hopkins said. “It’s disrespectful to Marvin Hagler.”

    Hagler was considered boxing’s undisputed middleweight champion from September 1980 until he lost a controversial split decision to “Sugar” Ray Leonard in April 1987. A disgusted Hagler (62-3-2, 52 KOs) never fought again after suffering that debatable defeat to Leonard.


    Hopkins refrained from flat-out saying Golovkin’s championship reign isn’t as authentic as his, yet emphasized that Golovkin isn’t nearly as good as the revered Hagler.

    “That must be them millennials saying that,” Hopkins said, “because nobody in they right mind – now there’s one thing promoting boxing and promoting the middleweight division, and you can exaggerate a little bit and have some fun. I understand this is a fun time and some conversations that you have, this is what’s called fun. When you say certain things, when you talk about Marvin Hagler and Triple-G, it’s disrespectful to Marvin Hagler.

    “When you start talking about is ‘Caveman’ Triple-G and Marvin Hagler in the same voice, it’s disrespectful to Marvin Hagler. It’s not even hype. It comes a point when certain things are just disrespectful. … We’re all having fun. But I know when to not have fun. I know when to cut the fun **** (poop) out.”

    Damn, Hopkins sounds punchy. Not really surprising, I guess.

    Golovkin would never be out down twice and eek out a draw with Mercado neither would he need to fight Allen thrice

    I do think it is always harder for the guy moving up to win than the one who is there. Is Canelo wins it says more about him being great than GGG. GGG is bigger and has to throw more body punches and take more chances than the last fight and if he is not hurt when Canelo counters he can win by stoppage. It looks like a good fight, I just think Canelo has too big a hill to climb. GGG is just a bigger guy..
