Im not saying it's not at all technical... His overwhelming style and speed advantage are what wins him fights though. He eats a lot of leather but makes sure to slap his opponent 3-4 times everytime he gets touched. That in your face style is like soul food for Bhop. He's going that shit up. There are going to be 100 counter opportunities per round for Hop and he's going to take advantage.
Hopkins will land shots that count while Calzaghe is flailing away.
I actually can't decide on this. I think Calzaghe will win if it goes the distance.
Calzaghe has never been knocked out and Hopkins doesn't exactly have huge knock out power.
He's undoubtedly quicker than Hopkins and his work rate puts the old man's to shame.
I don't see how B-Hop can win this fight.
i smell a controversial ending coming...
a classic case of quality vs. quantity, the few better punches vs the volumes of punches.
i'm pullin for Hopkins. it would be sweet if he does Joe like he did Tarver. unlikely but it would be on my hard drive for all time.
I think Hop stops him. The reason Hop throws so few punches is because he generally matches himself up against other counter punchers. This is a different beast. He going to have all the opportunities he can handle and Joe will either have to change his gameplan and throw less punches or taste his first ko loss.
