    They should do a podcast. The Alien and the Kid.
     
  4. Faber wasn't as boring. Hopkins was a like 25+ time world champion who beat alot of notable fighters.

    Too bad I won't ever care to rewatch a b-hop fight.

    Hopkins is a champion and one of the greatest ever at fighting at his own pace, thus the longevity. I don't rate Faber, but I can respect what he's built over in Sacramento.

    You have to know what to look for. He had fantastic fundamentals and mastered head butts. His fight with Oscar wasn't boring.
