I'm surprised the poll has a tie between Hopkins & Bradley. I voted Hopkins to be toughest fight.

Well Hopkins has never really been dominated other than by a crippled Roy Jones years ago. The guy is a tough fight for anyone, but I always maintained that he always has trouble with athletic long counter punchers/boxers (Dawson, Taylor, Jones).

I agree that is the more difficult style for X to overcome. He still beat Taylor in the 1st fight(In my opinion) and got his revenge on a older Roy. He was decent against Dawson for a guy nearing his 50th B-day lol Hopkins is unbelievable.

Why is Hopkins even on this list? At 160, he would look like Rocky Martinez in the face, and his body would look like Morales's at the 3rd Pac weigh-in.

Let's be real here, Bernard was clutching at straws when he brought up the idea of a Mayweather fight, and some of us are clutching twice as hard for even entertaining it.

He clearly lost to a one handed Roy Jones.. don't see how that isn't getting dominated.

It is Very possible Hopkins was attempting to get attention by saying he could reach 160 for a Mayweather fight. However, if anyone is able to do it, Hopkins would be the one. He's that much of a genetic freak. It won't happen, but would be an interesting Event or Circus depending on how you viewed it.

Good ol' Joe put them fists (read: slaps) to B-Hop too. That's the most that I've ever seen Roy outgunned, but Smokin' Joe is the only man on this planet Earth to put Hopkins in peril...no one can ever repeat that type of domination. Come back to the sport Joe, we need ya!

If Hopkins was at 168, then I could picture it, but coming from 175 to 160 is a huge stretch. He takes care of his body, so he could surprise us, but I think a stiff breeze in the arena, would give him trouble. He has the skills to hang, but if your body isn't up for it, then that's another story. LMAO at "event or circus"! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Martinez simply because he's a big guy and he's not an aggressive fighter so he won't walk on to counter punches like most opponents
