It's unlikely we'll get either.Think it was unlikely that we'd get Burns-Broner and Clev-Hopkins within a month of each other.
I always find boxing fans are far far too quick to go 'he should retire' but in this case I think youre right - with the pavlik & pascal fights being brilliant to watch and incredible for a guy his age they were perfect to go out on whereas the Dawson fights just reminded you of boring spoiler clinching cheating Hopkins from the Calzaghe and Taylor fights - left a bad taste in the mouth when he could have gone out on such a high.Hopkins was fighting like a journeyman last time out. He should retire man, the 2nd Pascal fight was a fitting way to end a great career.
Hopkins getting old overnight? How much older does he need to get?If Hopkins doesn't get old overnight I can see him winning this definitely. Would like to see it happen.
Watching Hopkins (at least in the last few years) is a bit of an enigma really. Sometimes he's really bad to watch but then every now and then he'll pull off amazing performances like against Pavlik and Pascal. It's gonna be even harder next time but I wouldn't be all that shocked if he could somehow do a similar thing Cloud.hopkins needs to give it a rest, hes gotta to be one of the most boring fighters ever... tbf though i suppose thats why hes still fighting at nearly 50 years old, he spoils fights and doesnt get hit... i like technical fights, but hopkins just holds... i see cloud winning on points...
