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)

I understand some fans want to see the boundaries pushed but in regards to Floyd, it's like they want some other worldly stuff to take place. I just appreciate the greatness because I know there will not be another fighter like Mayweather Jr, just like we will never see another Ray Robinson or Ray Leonard. It's funny how some people who say those things like Floyd should fight at 160, looking at some of them it's stuff they should be doing lol. I'm tired of fans trying to live thru athletes and also in this regard using Ray Leonard and the fighters of the 80's to justify Floyd fighting at 160.

They set their own path and Mayweather has blazed his own trail, I respect individuality and those who are original and he's definitely that. In regards to a fight with Bernard it just doesn't make sense. He doesn't have a belt at MW and hasn't been in that weight class in many years. It does nothing for his legacy to fight Hopkins. At this point another legacy defining fight besides the one he just had is against Tim Bradley. He can also have a legacy defining fight against a GGG if we going to be throwing stuff out there. Garcia has greatness or at least the potential to be great, that's a legacy fight. And like I said what about Manny whose going to be a free agent soon. All these fights make more sense then Bernard

Thats just how good the dude is. If any other LHW called out a WW to fight at 160 you damn sure wouldnt hear responses like, "It could happen if... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/ok.gif) " All you'd hear is "Sit your big ass down."

Indeed he is that good. Anytime a fight against a 175+ guy is being entertained then you know he's the truth.
