:thumbsup: I am getting sick of the DLH/Mayweather threads so I have been doing some research and found that HBO plans to continue the 24/7 series with a 4 part buildup to the Winky Wright vs. Bernard Hopkins fight due to the success of De La Hoya Mayweather 24/7.

I really like this idea and think it is great for boxing. What do you guys think? Would you like for this to continue prior to many of the relatively big pay per view bouts?

I agree. Boxing picked up two new sponsors in Southwest Airlines and RockStar energy drink along with a few others due to the critical acclaim of the 24/7 series. Sponsorship will help boxing dramatically IMO, along with consistently entertaining fights.

24/7 great. Hop likes to talk all right. The sense part may be in question.

Bernard is a smart guy boxingwise. Think about it. He has been doing it for a VERY long time.

I never said BHOP wasnt smart. You take things way too literally. There is room for a little leeway you know?! Hopkins is a smart guy in the boxing circle, sometimes he just lets his mouth get in the way of his brain. PBF does that at times as well. Dont have a conniption dude!

hopkins size at 170 will be the diffence, i still look at winky as a 154 guy punching above his weight, this one makes for a borefest but hop should get a convincing UD here.

Ive only went against Hopkins one time and that was against Taylor. Size should definitely be the difference in this one. I just hope BHOP can do enough to make it interesing, because i dont think Winky will. Could be a borefest,but i sure hope not.

Hahaha. Is this fight at 170 for sure? I figured they would do it at a catchweight.

i doubt winky will make this the boring fight im sure hopkins will kick back and wait for winky then counter....

winky made the taylor fight whut it was by comin foward

hopkins made the tarver fight cuz he was comin foward

they both fought the bigger guys so they had to be the agresser and come in

so my thought winky the smaller guy is gonna make the fight by giving the effort of trying to be the agresser..

b hops the bigger guy and will be at an advanage but imm pullin for

I think Hop will handle him easily at the higher weight. Winky looked a little stiff and slow in his last fight, and I think he's starting to fade. B-Hop looks re-energized at his new weight, and I think he'll just be too much for Winky. This one does set up to be a very defensive, technical fight. These are two of the best tacticians in the game.

Yo dude did you donate that 2000? If so I enjoyed the bet bro. Do you wanna bet again on Hop/Winky. I'll take Hopkins for whatever you wanna bet.

the bad thing is, arent they in business together? There will not be a good guy bad guy and one guy talking s h i t on the other. However i do think all ppv fights should have a 24/7 thing. I wish they would do it for cotto/judah. I would love to see that. As for the fight. I really dont think hopkins has the style to beat winky. I think taylor showed the way to beat winky and that is just to throw wild punches and hope to break his defense. Winky is a hard person to beat but hop is smart. I dunno though. I think both are great fighters even though i dont like each's style. Im going with winky just because.

NOt everyone has hbo though. i think they need to show replays on espn or something, thats the only way to get not already boxing fans involved. People that dont have hbo will never no about it. Most everyone gets espn and someone could be flipping channels someday and come across some loud mouth black guy with gloves on and be like man, i would like to watch him fight. No racism here.
