hopkins already said he's retiring on boxingtalk methinks, and he should. he can retire with his chin up being i felt he did well despite losing.
it hurts me to see tito fight period.^^^^^
Yeah, probably. That's where the money is, but it hurts me to see a Tito fighting above 160lbs. I miss the Felix Trinidad of old.
Hopkins won't get in there with a banger like Johnson. That wouldn't be an easy win like Trinidad.He needs to go out on a W, maybe fight Glen Johnson or someone like that. But Tito vs. B-Hop looks likely.
I'm a Hopkins fan more than a Tito fan. I'd like to see Hopkins go out with a win over anyone.i would hope bernard would show some mercy, and not even entertain any idea of fighting tito. he's cheapening his legacy after each dismal performance.
Yeap that's the most likely scenario, but hey they're the ones asking for it so I say let them fight so they can both retire for good with some good $$$$$Trinidad was a sensationally fighter at 147lbs. His left hook was devastating down there, its a shame he keeps on fighting and especially against Bernard. He'll get badly beaten again.
It was hardly an execution Tommy more like yet another Vegas assassination. But if Calzaghe fans are happy classing this injustice as a win for their hero so be it. Let the contraversy die nowBy Mark Vester
Trainer Freddie Roach, who worked the corner of Bernard Hopkins last Saturday, feels the Philadelphia fighter should retire before he gets hurt. Hopkins lost a split-decision verdict to Joe Calzaghe, but has a possible rematch on the table with Felix Trinidad. Promoter Don King recently contacted Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer to discuss a Hopkins-Trinidad rematch.
Roach voiced the opinion that Hopkins needs to focus on his future health, forget about Trinidad or making any other fight and call it a career.
"I'd tell him to retire," Roach told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "He's had a great career. At his age, he might be pushing the envelope a little too much. . . . He's not got anything to be ashamed of tonight or any night in his life. Forty-three? Shoot, I retired when I was 27."
Accepting and allowing the Vegas scoring injustices just allow the crooks to continue Its time people like Giampa,Ford & co were called to explain their ridiculous officiatingGet over yourself and bhop CJ. Everyone else has excepted it. BHOP announced his retirement today I believe. But I think he'll get one more win and then retire.
