Yes but Bernard has been boxing since he was about 20 years old in prison. When did cung have his first full contact fight? He's also been very inactive for the last 8 years or so. Don't get me wrong i'm a Cung fan but just pointing out when you're pushing 50 that experience matters in fighting.

A key difference is that Hopkins is a legit fuckin' savage and Cung is not. Cung is a much classier guy and more likable, but those aren't useful/relevant qualities when shit gets real in a fight.

At least more half of those as far as one concerns are regional-level accolades, and the MMA award aren't that much either. One time middleweight champion and that's it. If he had more awards than Hopkins, why does no one aware of him in the public consciousness compare to Hopkin's measly 20+ fights reign as a world middleweight champion (and later became the unified champion beating HOF Tito Trinidad), world light heavyweight champion, and on his way to become the unified chamption as of now?. Until you can get to Hopkins' world class level, then let's draw parallel. As someone point out, Hopkins had been fighting much earlier in prison, 1988 is when he officially fight as a pro. And he had been fighting since then, not taking like 5 years of diddling around like Mr Cung , ride off the coat tail of Strikeforce and his highlight reels vs regional level opponent. Yeah, he won against Franklin....and get beat badly by Wanderlei....and didn't the Count just beat the shit out of them as well? lol
