Good videos. I think this will be a boxing match that erupts into somewhat of a brawl in the late rounds. Will be interesting.

I would never have guessed. After all, you basically have every current boxer in your signature, bar Hopkins laugh.gif

I Know...LOL
Thats my p4p top 5, if it were my p4p top 6, BHOP would def be in there!!!! Iam waiting unitl Marquez-Pacqiauo before I add him. One of those guys will have to drop!

No one should really blast you for it...its very realistic in my view!! Calzaghe will be made to look very ordinary against B-Hop. Like I have said before it may just come down to who the ref is in this fight and whether he'll let Bernard fight his kind of fight. Anyway it goes Calzaghe fans better be ready to see thier guy roughed up and bloody by fights end...no doubt in my mind! thumbsup_anim.gif

I really would love to see Hopkins whip Calzaghe's ass, I wouldn't have a problem with Joe if he wasn't always playing the "American's give me no respect" card all the time. I pick up the newest ring magazine and the article on Joe of course you know it was in there after the Kessler fight. I think that was true maybe 3 or 4 years ago but not now, I have him probably 3rd or 4th P4P certainly no lower then 5...If he beats Hopkins by TKO or KO would certainly have him right up there with Floyd on the list...

I sure HOPE so but I have a feeling it's going to be pretty uneventful...

It'll be a chess match, but I think both guys will lay alot on the line. Both have hinted that they're not really going to fight much longer so they'll definitely won't hold back.

I think alote of people will be suprised how ordinary calzaghe will actually look against B-Hop,....


Yes, we will see a high out put early in the fight from Calzaghe. Toward the latter end of this fight we will see a different Calzaghe....I'll explain.. The brit threw a hell of alote of punches in the Kessler fight,..as he will here. But does anyone realize that he only landed about 1/3 of those punches? He even said himself he was suprised he laned so little! Calzaghe has a low land percentage......

On top of all this B-Hop WILL make him pay for many of those punches. I think we are forgetting that B-Hop is a defensive master and will not only make calzaghe miss his target but will counter effectively.


It wont be a flashy fight, if fact, it will be quite difficult to score. Because there will be times when it will look like Joe is making progress, but in actuality its just him throwing just to point on the cards. This, in my opinion, will be the only way Calzaghe will win. (Remeber Calzghe is comming up in weight also, he may loose a little power,...speed ect.)

This will be an ugly fight,,.......just the way Bernard likes them..

Plus,....we know Calzaghe can be hurt,....Not to say Hopkins can hit harder than Kessler,...but Calzaghe has trouble with strait rights.....One of Bernards (many) money makers......

I don't know how to call this one really,....Its like I have a court room in my head and I'm going back and forth with different evidence to prove who has the win......


cant wait till April 19th.......

HATTON TALKED THAT shit and came to America and got the shit beat out of him by Mayweather. Calzaghe is 35 and no Spring Chicken himself. Calzaghe has fought no one even close to the level of Winky Wright who was soundly beaten by a 42 year old master. Calzaghe will go back to Waleswith a loss. He offers nothing that Hopkins cannot deal with. It will be like night and day. JOe C is nearly 36... age will not be a factor in this fight. AT 175 hopkins will be too much for Calzaghe.

If BHOP wins this fight, Does this make him the P4P king?

I think it def. has to put him up there...even more-so if he wins easily which I think he will.
