Great interview. Definitely want to read that book.
Were boxers worked to death in those days? If a prime Hopkins were dropped from the future into the 50s, 40s or 30s, is it possible that he would dominate BECAUSE of modern training techniques and less wear and tear?
good question beardo.. i would answer that by saying im sure he meant had hopkins fought in those times with the training available at that time... ive thought about the same thing tho.. i side with silver in the fact that those guys fought a lot more fights back then before making it to the big shows.. but the argument can be made that maybe they didnt have the amature a lot of these guys have today (as you said o.j.t...)... but a good read... i enjoy reading or hearing perspectives rather i agree or not...
