We've never seen Bernard Hopkins definitively beaten. Chad Dawson and maybe Calzaghe gave him his worst beatings in recent years. Both of those losses werent beatings by any stretch. They were both close and competitive fights. How do you beat Hopkins 117 - 111 or wider? Or better yet, how would someone go in and STOP hopkins. I know a lot of fighters and trainers peruse the board, gimme some of your expert opinion and insight.

The common answer is work rate but I can't really agree on that because Calzaghe had the best work rate of any fighter Hopkins ever saw and I think he beat Calzaghe. I think a fighter with Chad's physical gifts and more mental focus could be it but then again, Hopkins is Hopkins. I don't think he'll ever be BEATEN like some think
