Alright...i know there is anything possible in boxing, but seriously...Mayweather vs Hopkins?

I just finished reading this weeks OaF and....WOW. Are we really talking about this fight as if it was a possibility? I mean...a month ago nobody would ever even entertain the thought of these two fighting each other. There is literally NO DEMAND for this fight to happen. There was no debate, no NEED and no interest...and in my opinion, there still isn't.

How the hell did we get to this point? One man who happens to be a HoFer opens his mouth (Which he does quite often and even bigger bullshit comes out) and now we are here? Sometimes, the world of boxing and fans around it astound me...

P.S. Loving the profile pic (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Personally for me many people forget that Floyd had just won his first title at 154 when Nard had just lost to Taylor and as I recall BHop weighed no more than 156 when he faced DLH when they fought so a CW wouldn't have been out of the question at that time and probably not even now if Nard can still make it to 160 or below but I doubt that Mayweather moves anywhere above 154 when he can barely make 152 and still drops down to 146-148 for his fights at Jr MW.

It may be illogical to think that this fight won't happen but it is not totally out of question if the following happens:

A. Hopkins can make a CW of 157 or so
B. Mayweather agrees to it and goes above 154
C. The demand is there ASSuming both guys agree on the money (shouldn't be an issue, Floyd will automatically command a bigger check)
D. It has to happen before the end of next year giving both fighters time to take tune-up fights in between and make the agreed upon CW limit.

I'd still watch it if it did happen, BHop would have size, height and strength to his advantages and Mayweather would have speed and youth to his; experience is basically even given Floyd's longer amateur and Olympic experiences.

I'll just close with this, though many of us may not agree with this, it is highly possible given the current landscape we find regarding the political differences between TR and GBP or Mayweather promotions into finding enough viable candidates for Money to face to meet all of his total 6 fight agreements.

These 2 names are bigger or as big as Floyd vs Pac or Floyd vs Ward/GGG at the moment.
