Bernard Hopkins "He is gonna get his ass kicked (James Toney)"

First of all, yes I'm aware this is old news so need to point it out
YouTube - Bernard Hopkins gives his opinions on Toney vs Couture

He does have a good point but at the same time it can be countered. Boxers can use their boxing in MMA. He's right in a sense that guys like Mayweather, Pacquiao, Hopkins himself do not take people down nor choke people out but they do utilize footwork, distancing, timing, and fast hands which are definitely applicable to the sport of MMA.

Former three division champion James Toney has fired back at Bernard Hopkins and WBA heavyweight champion David Haye. Both fighters have been very critical of Toney's entrance into the world of MMA. Toney has a huge task in front of him when he faces former UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture on pay-per-view August 28 in Boston.

Haye called Toney "delusional" for making such a move. Hopkins said Toney will "get his ass kicked." Toney says both Hopkins and Haye will eat their words after he pulls off an impressive MMA debut in two weeks.

"I don't like neither one of them anyway so it don't matter," Toney told ESPN. "I don't care about the boxing community. I care about James Toney. It's about James Toney and Randy Couture. It's not about James Toney and boxing and James Toney and MMA.

"This is James Toney and Randy Couture so for Bernard he can go somewhere and get his damn teeth fixed. And David Haye, he's gay. I don't care about none of that. So they can just listen to all their bullshit."

Dumb boxing question. Isn't B-HOP still hold the belt for one of the 3 BIG boxing promotions?

Hopkins does have a point though regardless of whether he likes or dislikes Toney.
