Yep its on now!!!! Another over-rated british fighter is about to get his ass handed to him!! OH man I cant wait......mark my words...Calzaghe will look as average as anyone has ever seen him look against B-Hop...actually I see Calzaghe winning the first couple rounds and thats it...Bernard wont let him use his fast hands and will counter him all night with that quick right hand. Not to mention headbutts and elbows on the inside! Everyone looks awkward against B-Hop...Calzaghe will be a better victory for Bernard than Tarver was....Wait and see!!


He'll have to throw more than 15 punches a round.

He always makes his opponent fight his fight. Its gonna be Calzaghe who has a hard time getting off with anything and being smothered all night.

Yeah but Hopkins will have to pull the trigger consistently when his opportunities arrive. And I think B-Hop will find Joe to be pretty awkward as well. Calzaghe will offer hand speed and movement and for a 43 year old guy, that will be difficult to deal with.

Yeah you make good points...but lets not forget though B-Hop is old he is still the best defender in boxing besides PBF. Joes movement may bother him however I think Bernard will be able to fight his usual fight so the hand speed wont be a real factor. The more I think about it I have to take back my Tarver fight comparison...I dont think Calzaghe will take that kinda ass whoopin but I do expect a U.D. victory for B-Hop.

Its possible. I've counted Hopkins out before(Tarver and Wright) and lost. I just think Joe's a different animal. With this fight, avoiding punishment alone won't get it done for Hopkins. He'll have to dish out quite a bit and in doing so, that will also create opportunities for the faster and younger Calzaghe.
